this is not a post about Christian hipster culture.
my aim here is not to make God cool or trendy.
He is content with omnipotence, i’d say.
nevertheless, the prophet Isaiah asserts that the Almighty does, in fact, have a tattoo.

He knows the entire list of failures that you played in your mind as you drifted to sleep last night, and he knows the ways that we’ll fail again tomorrow, and He wants each of us to behold his infinite, permanent love and
we have been written on to the very skin of the Almighty.
you are God’s tattoo. on his palms. in His hands.
