This was my very first tattoo taken on the 29th of April 2010, the very day I turned 18 :)

I will soon build more to this tattoo to make it even longer and reach down on my hip.

Time spent: 6 hours

EDIT: For the record I do NOT recommend first timers to get such a huge and detailed tattoo. Especially not near the ribs. It was 6 hours of pure torture and hell. Never before have my mouth said so many curses. But all in all, it was pretty darn worth it <3

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV)
[4] Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. [5] It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. [6] Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. [7] It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. This scripture is in every bible, it's not just catholic or Christian. I read it at my cousins wedding that is Mormon. It's in ever bible I've ever read and I've read a lot of different bibles NIV, NLT, KJ, NKJ NASB this is a scripture that is read a lot a weddings

To be honest I have no idea. Since I am not personally a Christian myself (I just love this verse so much and I feel it speaks to me), to me the catholic-christians and the protestant-christians are just the same :p Are there any difference in their books? O.O Thought it was just the way they chose to "understand" and live it that was the difference. But if I must guess it's probably looked upon as Chatolic, even though I did find the norwegian version of it in my baptism bible (which is protestant since my country is a protestant-christian country) phew.. Why cant we just have one big happy religion? :p

Aww thank you very much!
Even though I'm not religous or anything that bibleverse just screamed out to me and I knew as soon as I saw it that I HAD to make that my very first tattoo!
I planned it for over a year and changed the design a dozen times, and I'm glad I did because the outcome was so perfect for me I couldn't ask for anything else. Really looking forward 'til it's 100% finished :D
