Evangelizing Through Tattoos

Jeff Cavins

Tattoos tell a story – for better or worse.

Jeff has discovered that these stories provide opportunity for spontaneous conversations, and when guided by the Holy Spirit, can lead to evangelization. In his own experience, Jeff has had amazing encounters influenced by God that all began with ink.

This example of self-expression is just one means of showing our inner-selves to others. There are many means of expression that we can use as opportunities to talk about God. As Jeff says in this episode, what is deep within a person is often times brought to the surface and displayed, and people have a way of talking about it.



Galatians 6:17 – “Henceforth let no man trouble me; for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.”
John 19:34 – “Instead, one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out.”
Philippians 2:17 – “But even if I am being poured out as a libation over the sacrifice and the offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you.”
2 Timothy 4:6 – “As for me, I am already being poured out as a libation, and the time of my departure has come.”
John 19:30 – When Jesus had received the wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
2 Timothy 4:7 – “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

  • I believe that, when I was being catechized by the good Felician nuns many years ago, I was told that the Church considered tattoos verboten as a desecration of the body.
