I just finished reading Soul Tattoo: A Life and Spirit Bearing the Marks of God by Samuel Kee. I had it on my Kindle for months, but having a surplus of content, I hadn’t read it until now. I wish I had read it sooner because it was fascinating. The author uses the imagery of tattoos and makes comparisons with God’s tattoos on our life, for we are “marked” by God. The soul tattoos described come from Isaiah 43:1-7:

But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you.

O Israel, the one who formed you says,

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will now drown.

When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.

I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place.

Others were given in exchange for you. I traded their lives for yours

because you are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.

Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will gather you and your children from the east and west.

I will say to the north and south, ‘Bring my sons and daughters back to Israel from the distant corners of the earth.

Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.’”

The four soul tattoos are:

  • You are Mine.
  • I will be with you.
  • I love you.
  • I created you for My glory.

God has etched these truths on our souls. They mark us as belonging to Him (“You are Mine.”) and give us comfort (“I will be with you.”), worth (“I love you.”), and purpose (“I created you for My glory.”).

Soul Tattoo will change the way you think about yourself, your relationship with God, and your Christian experience. It’s definitely worth a read, but don’t read it if you want to go back to life as usual.

We all long for something that will last. Far more permanent than the tattoos we put on our skin are the tattoos God puts on our souls.

Life is hard. Maybe that’s why people get tattoos….to remember what matters. But this actually reveals a deeper longing for God’s eternal tattoos. Using imagery and illustrations of today’s tattoo culture, Samuel Kee connects timeless principles of Scripture to the relevancy of a rising urban trend.
