A Jesus tattoo billboard looking down on folks in West Lubbock, Texas, has some calling this a sacrilegious display of Jesus today. The people who tattooed the lord savior’s image and put him on display with this billboard remain anonymous today, according to Fox News on Oct. 11.
When people first started bringing guitars into the church in the 1960s and 1970s, the word sacrilegious was used to describe this type of music in the church. This Jesus tattooed billboard is getting a lot of attention and maybe it will work at bringing the younger population back to the church.
It's a modern twist on Jesus. He's not doing anything sacrilegious, the creators just put Jesus in a modern day scene. He looks like any other young man today with all their tattoos, so maybe the thought is to have young people equate with Jesus today by giving him some very normal tattoos.

The tattooed Jesus billboard directs you to go to the website, “Jesustattoo.org,” which offers up a video of Jesus as a tattoo artist replacing negative words, which people have tattooed on their bodies, with positive words.
The video is showing how Jesus can change things and using him as the tattoo artist cleaning up negative tattoos is not such a bad thing. It could be that these unnamed folks who created the billboard are trying and get the younger generation into Jesus or church. What's the harm with Jesus spreading the word via ink and flesh?
