Mother Mary by ~allentattoo is the exact opposite of massive, all-out tattoos: a calm, sweet image done with economy of means... truly in this case, less is more. ( Featured by stigmatattoo )

I am of the roman catholic faith, however you dont need anyone like me to tell you what an amazing job you've done. I have a rosary tattoo and i most certainly dont want to disturb anyone with the whole "book of rules" that seems to be apparent here, but it's our faith that'll take us where we need to be. That being said god bless you all. Oh and this truly is a work of beauty

Beautiful shading. I'm looking to get a tattoo but the local tattoo shops are... less than desirable. Who and what shop did your tat, also what city is it in?

Not a fan of tattoo art in general because of the look (limitations of the tools I always thought) but damn! This is good as a tat or a piece of art hanging on a wall. Those are some real skills. Gonna check your others out!

I like it from an artistic point of view, the image is very gentle. I never liked tattoos, but not because I am a Christian. It must hurt so much... and I also never liked the fact it stays forever (unless you undergo another painful process).

I'm Mormon and don't belive in marking the body with tattoos, but from an artistic perspective, the actual image is very well done.

Very nice use of negative space: a lot of tatoos don't know how to do that.

Actually, there`s a part in the bibble when the people of Israel is told to do not mark their bodies, aparently,the reason is that they are the "chosen" ones, so they have to be diferent from the rest of the people, in those times, most people `round Israel marked their bodies.

I like tatoos, some ones are kinda cool, personally, if i have a good body i will got one long time ago

Yep!!, and not only the tatoos, but many other that once worked for the jeweish, were changed for the christians, like the kind of food or the talion`s law, noe there`s a bit more of reedom as well as new concepts appear.

Interesting article BTW :reading:

It's been said in the bible that it's forbidden to harm yourself in any way or form. But I wonder, could tattoos be part of this sin? Piercings? That's some food for thought. self damage to the body is found under the commandment thou shall not kill if you wish to look it up.

With this endless debate going on in my head pushed aside, I really like this tattoo. It has to be one of the most serene pics of Mary I have ever seen... the artist has done some excellent work! Mind if I ask how big it is?
