Bible-Themed Tattoos

Updated on July 8, 2014

Scripture Memorization Tattoos

Tattoo Themes from the Bible

Few things are more important to Christians than the bible, and a significant number of believers decide to ink bible verses or biblical imagery on themselves as a result.

Both are very compelling, and the inclusion of what appears to be a scroll or a nice-looking font work adds a nice touch the Biblical theme.

Most of what I included below are Bible versus, although I did add a couple of nice images which you should enjoy.

So between the images, fonts and canvasses chosen to portray what is considered the word of God by Christians, there are a lot of diverse ideas which can be gleaned from the Bible tattoo collection.

Bible Tattoo: Genesis

What better place to start with Bible tattoos than the opening words of the book: Genesis. I love the drama of this verse, and there's a lot happening there for those who are students of the Bible.

As to the design, I like the clarity of the font and the opening design of the "I" of "In."

Ten Commandments Tattoo

Another Biblical theme almost universally known is the "10 Commandments." Here's a simple but elegant image of what is perceived to be what the tablets looked like after God Himself carved the commandments in the stone.

Psalms Scroll Tattoo

Here's another tattoo that has a very simple design, but one that definitely conveys the feel and look of how the words may have looked long ago (minus the English of course). I also like the font in this verse.

Another Psalm Tattoo

This tattoo of a verse in the book of Psalms really stands out nicely, and the font is as good as it gets to me, within the context of the Biblical theme.

Tattoo of Jesus

The centerpiece of the Bible, Jesus Christ, is also the centerpiece of this full back tattoo, as imagined to look like by those living in our day. The tattoo is a little too busy for me, but is very well done from a design point of view.

David and Goliath Tattoo

This is a very powerful tattoo design of David and Goliath, and captures the very essence of the story. The detail is very meticulous and believable, and gives the feel of it leaping off of the pages of the Bible.

I like the minimalist inclusion of the blood of the giant after David took his head off of his shoulders.

Tattoo from Book of Daniel

This is a fascinating image, and if you look closely, you'll see that the shape of the star coincides with several mentions of it in the verse it is referencing. Really nice looking tattoo.

Popular Bible Verse from Book of Jeremiah

This is one of the more quoted Bible verses by Christians, as it gives great hope in difficult times that Jesus is for them, and over time will deliver them from all their troubles.

There are numerous Bible tattoos, with as many verses inked on as their appear to be in the Bible, as each person chooses a favorite verse to remind them and to share with others.

      Cool Hub. I've got six tattoos and three of them are Christian related. No Bible verses, but I have a Chi Rho, a Celtic cross, and two of the Five Solas.

      I'm probably never going to get a tattoo, because it is so permanent. Although, my opinion about tattoos is that people should get one that is meaningful. I really like the idea of these Bible tattoos. The David and Goliath one is pretty cool and I love the Jeremiah 29:11 one, because that's one my favorite verses. Thanks for sharing; I voted this up and useful!
