tattoos (& king cake)

in the search for tattoo no. 2 (there is a wife-imposed moratorium on tattoos in excess of one per calendar year, so i only became tattoo-eligible again early in january), i ran across doug gray's christian symbols and their meanings site. pretty interesting, if you're into that kind of stuff, and i am. i'm fascinated by the symbols and art of the xtian church (of any religion, if you press me on it). and on a slightly different note, who knew king cake had religious significance? if you want one and don't have a local eatery that traffics in mardi gras-type confections, try paul's pastry. our office just polished off the first one of the season, and it was from paul's -- best one we'd ever tasted.

    dude.. that symbols site is awesome. i too have been thinking of getting another tattoo.

    I thought it was strange that some of the symbols for the apostles contained the instruments with which they were executed.

    I'm not as well versed on early church history, but it seems strange to me that the apostles suffered such brutal deaths. it seems that loving and gentle people (outside jewish territories) would at the most be thrown in jail for the rest of their lives. I mean, Rome must have assimilated many religions as they conquered Europe...
