Just like the all other parts of the body, a religious back piece often represent the same emotions, actions, and lessons. Paying attention to the particular placement of this art on the back, though, slightly alters the entire reasoning for the tattoo to begin with.
The placement solidifies Jesus’ place within the wearer’s heart, and takes a stronger approach to faith in general.
When the expression, “I have your back,” is said, it does not mean that a person literally has your back in their possession. Instead, it means that they are on your side and willing to do anything to protect you and make sure that your life is running smoothly.
When Jesus is placed on a back, it means that he is always guiding and protecting the person wearing him. It is said that this placement represents Jesus giving people a push forward in a positive direction rather than them stepping back in a more negative fashion.
In addition to this, if a person were to take a step in the wrong direction, Jesus would be there to pick them up and put them on the right track.
