Tattooing Tucson Since 1976

God, Country and Tattoos

Three subjects that are very important to me and I believe that we should search for truth, instead of being afraid to face it. Wednesday evenings I am involved with the AWANA program at Christ Community Church in Tucson Arizona. I have the privilege to share the Gospel for fifteen minutes with sixty children. Matt. 18:3 Jesus said unless you convert and become like children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.  What does it mean to a child? I would like to challenge you to listen to what the children have to say about God. 

"How To Defeat The Giants"
First is we must trust and have faith that God is.
God is Love
The love that God gave came at a cost to Him so that we receive a free gift of eternal life.
Find a quite place for a half hour or so, sit back and listen with an open heart. I know that many people do not want to go to church, well here is a chance to listen to the word of God in the privacy of your home! Hopefully you will share it with others! Salvation is a free gift!! John 3:16 For God so love the world that he gave His only Son, so that who ever believes in Him will have eternal life. I want to encourage you to listen to my recorded sermons, for I have put as much passion in them as I have with my art, maybe more. I have lived a life as tattooist who has been given the opportunity to meet so many people from so many different back grounds. In my mid fifties I was admitted to Phoenix Seminary and graduated in 2012 with a Masters in Theology. It was an incredible adventure! Through these years of study enabled me to "sharpen my sword" to preach and share the "Good News."

I Believe...

"God is good all the time, all the time God is good." I have truly been blessed through many opportunities and adventures which tattooing has given me, causing me to ask and question, is there a God who made me, and cares enough to save me?  Even as I asked, God gave meaning to my past, and opened a whole new world. God has shown that  “Love is the Way.” It took going through some dark valleys to realize the truth to that saying. “God is good all the time!” When we obey His Word, we grow in spiritual knowledge; and as we grow in spiritual knowledge, we grow in freedom from sin. Life leads to learning, and learning leads to liberty. How easy it is to follow tradition and miss eternal truth. The publicans and sinners were rejoicing at His message, but His own half brothers were making fun of Him. “I AM” claims of Jesus--I AM the Bread.  St. Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless until we rest in Thee.” Are we filling our lives with things that are not really satisfying to us? This message is about learning to trust in God who has already won the battles in your life. The lost sinner is as lifeless and helpless as a corpse. No matter how an undertaker may prepare a corpse, it is still dead; and no corpse is “deader” than any other corpse. If you are dead, you are dead! People are so quick to point the finger and make accusations about others before they take a look at themselves. No matter what you seem to do, nothing seems to be right or good enough. People on our jobs and even in our families tend to find fault in everything we do and say. Isn’t that typical? Most anytime we start pointing fingers at someone else, we find ourselves caught as well. Anytime religion sets out after sin, without loving the sinner, it becomes judgmental.
