Fun with Christ.

As part of a local tattoo poster promotion, my dear friends MA and Blex recently dressed me up like the Saviour and took some funny pictures. More are to come, and I’ll post the gallery link after they all come through, as well as the final product for the Bizarre Ink promo. Here are a few that convey that certain feeling of big, wooden burdens and painful holes in the hand.

    I don´t think they are funny pictures, I think they are beautiful pictures, far more than funny pictures :>

    Well, I meant funny in the most beautiful way, of course.

    Thank you for saying so; this especially coming from you.

    🙂 you make very tender Christ, with very gentle look.
    One of the most gentle Christs I´ve ever seen :). Only a wooden Jesus altar figure I saw when I was a little creature has had more gentle look. Somehow those photos brought the same tender warm light on me as when I saw him.

    Was Christ a Pisces, lovely?
    I always thought he was a Virgo.

    Wow, those are gorgeous! Your friends are VERY talented photographers and you make a very good Jesus.
    Course, a Jesus with tattoos and dreads is almost enough to make me Christian.
    Try for St. Sebastian next? Judas?
    A whole series of you as various Christian figures. That would rock!
    I recommend skipping the Virgin Mary though….The beard might ruin the effect.

  27. FunkyPlaid Says:
    September 23rd, 2004 at 5:27 am

    I think I love you.
    I think I'd be a hot Mary, thank you very much. But the Sebastian idea is good. You gonna fire the arrows, then?
    *sticks out chest*

  28. agntprovocateur Says:
    September 23rd, 2004 at 5:52 am

    if you do st. sebastian, we will all SWOON! of course that famous imagine i see is the one where he's nekkid!

  29. velvetdahlia Says:
    September 23rd, 2004 at 4:27 pm

    Must…third…this!
    Sebastian all the way, tied to a tree wearing only that little saggy loin cloth and angels pushing/pulling the arrows! I think there's enough admirers on your list to pose as a whole posse of armed angels. Although, I wouldn't mind being Thomas to your Jesus.
    As you can probably tell, these pictures push a few of my bottons. : )

  30. FunkyPlaid Says:
    September 23rd, 2004 at 7:34 pm

    I guess so!
    I'm not sure I'm so happy about all these votes to make me a pincushion. In fact, it makes me feel a bit frightened for my well-being.
    I've heard 'just a little prick' on too many occasions, now.

    Awww….*smooch*
    Er…You as Mary? As long as it makes you happy.
    St. Sebastian would be too cool. Me firing arrows? Well, I did take an archery class–but I'm a sissy.
    Are the ones with the little sticky tips okay? It would give it sort of a Dadaist edge.

  33. FunkyPlaid Says:
    September 25th, 2004 at 5:55 am

    Oh, c'mon – take the plunge!
    The sticky cups leave little circular hickeys all over the place. Just not fitting for a saviour's agenda, y'know?

    Gorgeous!!
    The photo's are very well done, and the subject is beautiful. For pure quality I like the first one, but for subject matter I like the second one.
    The mood of the last one is fantastic, I can almost hear "Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want."

    What great commentary, thank you! I agree that the first is the best. We'll have to see the colour ones when they come out…but b&w fits the mood rather well. Thanks for looking!

    Hey, I'm the Lord.
    And the Lord says that you need to eat more meat.
    It's good for you, especially when that meat is made of Romans.

    Re: blood? heck, where's the loincloth?
    HA!
    That is hilarious! Oh man, with all the fish and chips and beer that Jesus has been ingesting this year, I don't think you want to see him unshrouded.
    Might make the peasants flee, if you know what I mean.

    Lovely photos, as everyone else has said. Did you have the pretty swirlies on your arm done while you were in Scotland or beforehand?

  44. FunkyPlaid Says:
    September 23rd, 2004 at 7:35 pm

    Oh, thanks! Those were done back home, hopefully to be finished in the near future when I get back, and then transferred to the other arm inversely.
    Of course I'll keep you updated right here!

    There's something that makes my mind recoil seeing someone as hot as you, and thinking of Christ in the same thought bubble.
    I think I'm going to hell now.

    Our Saviour! So, yeah, I figured he had dreads (no doubt), but I am not so sure about the ink and piercings?
    Either way, that's the kind of Jesus I'm more down! Go Jesus! ~ (*
