posticon lip tat


I've been craving a tattoo on the inside of my bottom lip with some connection to God's purification of his children... a reminder to glorify God in all that I speak and all that great stuff. My biggest inspiration for this is in Isaiah 6:7, so I've been trying to decide on what to get... like the chemical makeup of coal (no, it looks weird), the verse (too straight forward), a tiny TINY image/representation of this (what in the world could I even do with that notion?)

So, I was wondering what you people have for ideas. I looked up "Coal" in latin and it's "calculus" so that's out too. Maybe hebrew? I REALLY love this idea, but I can't get it narrowed down! emoticon

Thanks for being such wonderful peoples. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your site and can't wait for it to be done.

Re: lip tat


Oh yes, I'm new here so I feel I should introduce myself. My name's Joshua, I'm 20 (21 in April) I've been raised in a Christian home all my life (and am SO very thankful for that... it's awesome), I have a few tats already which I'll post later and am an avid writer of poems, which can be found on my myspace ([sign in to see URL]).

I'm currently living by myself near Downtown Houston while all but my oldest brother (I've got two) are across this green Earth. My brothers are between an hour away and a plane to NY away while my parents are in Germany while my dad's working for the airlines over there. I don't know any other people who are so interested in tattoos as I am, so I kind of feel out of place sometimes. I don't really know many Christians my own age that I can get in contact with regularly such as a youth group or anything, so keeping God as close as I can is getting more and more important to me and tattoos are a wonderful way to make sure I'll never forget He will never leave me and never forsake me, even though it may feel that way sometimes (because even though I know I've been blessed tremendously, I still get a case of the Mondays every once in a while).

I feel I've jabbered on too long, so I'll cut it off right now. If you've got questions, just ask and I'll oblige.

Love ya!

וְסָר עֲו‍ֹנֶךָ

Is this the correct Hebrew for "thine iniquity is taken away"? I got it from this site: [sign in to see URL]

You can click whichever Old Testament book & have both English & Hebrew right there together! I just want to make sure I grabbed the right part.

Re: lip tat


My name is Laura. My husband, Matthew, is studying Hebrew and says that it is correct. He also said that there are other Hebrew fonts available. I have a couple tattoos. I don't have a lip tat, but I did pierce my tongue as a reminder that "whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue shall keepeth his soul from trouble" (Prov 21:23).

Re: lip tat


Hi, Ms. Laura.

Interesting you said you have gotten a tongue stud, and referring to Prov. [sign in to see URL].

I never heard that reason being given before. Did you have any reaction, positive or negative?

(I've heard of permanent make up, which I guess could be regarded in some instances as lip tattooing; but more likely it's called extra pigmentation, or permanent lipstick. Anyhow.)

Take care.

Thanks for the reply!

I also read that lip tattoos lose 40% of the ink in the first year after getting one. Does anybody know how accurate an estimation that is and if losing so much definition (and subsequent touch-ups, of course) is worth it on such a small area? I'm just a little aprehensive now that I've got that statistic in my brain and would like some input from some peoples 'cause I don't personally know tattoo afficionados or anybody to give counsel on this kind of thing.

Re: lip tat


I've never seen or have been able to render a tattoo on the inside of the lip with any real detail, and the info you read about the fading is true. I recommend getting the tattoo somewhere else.

tongue piercing


I had more positive reactions than I expected. The only real negative reaction is my own, for my inability to guard my tongue at times emoticon
