There are a number of ways in which one of the most known religious icons can be depicted in art, which includes being eternally engraved on one’s skin. Jesus, in general, is often depicted in several common poses, usually falling under the category of two polarities—ones of reverence and general holiness, and then one that signifies his suffering. His face alone is enough for some individuals, with the style of photorealism most often being applied. But others opted for something a bit different, and even slightly traditional.

The American Traditional style of Jesus tattoo makes the Christian icon a little more colourful and animated than those that rely on a realistic look. The American Traditional signature use of flat line work and surreal shades make him look more doll-like as opposed to a real dimensional man—which could either be intentional or simply a preference in appearance.

As far as our physical bodies go, the largest space to paint a masterpiece is always going to be our back. No matter what size we are physical, if we want to get a monumental styled narrative piece, the best canvas is going to be one that we rarely see. This was certainly the wavelength of thought for those individuals in this section. They are more than likely Christians who are drawn to the teachings of Jesus and simply felt that anywhere else on their bodies was an insufficient surface area. 

The majority of these pieces focus on intense detail, once again relying on the style of photorealism. Large facial portraits depict a sheer look of faith and innocence on one piece, while others blend the techniques of deep black ink generally applied through the Gothic style of tattooing. The themes once again bounce between notions of innocence and the brutally violent sacrifice of the crucifixion.

Sometimes a sleeve is just enough space to detail the image and/or theme that is desired. Some people enjoy the access of the sleeve and the simple availability of the image for their own eyes to observe. Many tattoos are meant to be seen by the person sporting them, acting as encouragement or as a reminder of some deep-seated lesson learned.

Some of these pieces of Jesus contribute to a larger overall religious scene, while others once again rely on the brilliant shine and particulars of his profile through portrait work. Some pieces having him looking like a carving of a statue, the implication of stone shimming through the blank space between the linework. Others display him with a crown of thorns, a somber look of pain and defeat reflecting like a photograph on the skin.

The chest is more accessible than the back but is often a difficult place to be tattooed, physically. If you are okay with pain or feel a deep reverence for feeling physical pain that is akin to Jesus’ sacrifice—then go for it! Chest pieces generally offer a deeper level of commitment than other places on the body do. Depending upon which gender you identify with, different areas on the chest are going to hurt more, which also depends upon what style of tattoo you are committing yourself to.  

That was clearly not an issue for the individuals in this section—some even act as a second back for them, except it is one that they can glance at any time they see fit. Light shading depicts Jesus with the Virgin Mary, the sacred heart in the center of the sternum in one giant piece. Others show off a representation of Jesus’ betrayal just after one of the most iconic events depicting in modern art: The Last Supper by Leonardo DaVinci.  

5. Crucifixion Nails Realism With Blood

Incredible 3d Jesus On Cross Tattoo For Guys Wrist

The crucifixion of Jesus is one of the most violent yet potent events in Christian history. Figures of Jesus nailed to the cross hang in Churches, on necklaces, rosaries, and several other statues and sculptures of art. The sacrifice made is a form of selflessness that is one that is thought to be aspired to, which is clear to the individuals in this section.

The placement of nail going through Jesus’ wrist in these pieces is intentionally placed with a detail that everyone can stomach. Some are placed directly near the wrist of the individual, while others depict spurting blood in an uncensored display of worship.
