The Seal Upon My Arm


So I told you guys I’ve been considering a tattoo for a long time now. I’ve been able to spend some time brainstorming and I have a design that I would like to share. It has gotten some mixed response, but for the most part, I like it and that’s what matters right? right?

The idea of my tattoo comes from the following scripture…

Song of Solomon 8:6-7
Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man
would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be condemned.

Ephesians 2:4-5
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

The actual design is actually a coat of arms. On the left is a lion with a crown and on the right is a lamb with a crown. The idea that I’m placing a mark on myself permanently represents a marriage seal that will be with me always.

Ideally, this design will be roughly 2in wide and tattooed on my inner bicep, closer towards my elbow. ENOUGH WORDS! what do you think???

    Well I do love tattoos, well in moderation….
    But…I think the design is a little too complex for that area. For that tattoo in particular, if you are super set on that design, I think it would be good placed on your back…like top left.
    But if you really want it on your arm, you should work out and make sure your arms get more muscular. You want to have a nice sculpted arm to place a tattoo on.

    Good luck with the tattoo hunt! It took me forever to pick mine out!

    Jesus Christ theres a great deal of spammy feedback on this website. Have you at any time believed about trying to get rid of them or putting in a tool?

    Even though I really like this post, I think there was an spelling error near towards the end with the 3rd sentence.

  14. 2012/07/14 1:22 am

    Is it okay to put part of this on my website if I post a reference point to this web-site?

    Re: Whomever produced the statement that this was a good internet site genuinely needs to possess their head inspected.

    Odd , this post shows up with a dark color to it, what color is the primary color on your web site?

  20. 2012/07/16 11:55 am

    This blog site is really cool. How did you make it !?

    I was basically curious about if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? It is very well written; I enjoy what you have got to say. But maybe you could include a a bit more in the way of content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    I love your wordpress theme, where did you get a hold of it?
