12 Bible Verse Tattoos That Express Scripture in Creative Ways (PHOTOS)

Galatians 2:20 tattoo

Many show their love of Scripture by tattooing Bible verses on their bodies (to the chagrin of those who point to Leviticus 19:28 as instruction not to). Here are 12 creative Bible verse tattoos, ranging from a citation with a simple design, up to verses inscribed in their entirety.

1 Cor 13 tattoo

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. (ESV)


2 Cor 12:9 tattoo

2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (ESV)

Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever. (NLT)

From now on let no person trouble me [by making it necessary for me to vindicate my apostolic authority and the divine truth of my Gospel], for I bear on my body the [brand] marks of the Lord Jesus [the wounds, scars, and other outward evidence of persecutions—these testify to His ownership of me]!
