Cross of Truth Celtic Knotwork Tattoo Design

Easter is an appropriate time for this man's third and final marathon session to finish this large custom cross on his back. At his request we included the Alpha And Omega symbols in the arms of the cross, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet referenced by Christ in Revelations 1:8.  At the top of the cross is the Chi-Ro symbol, a Christogram, superimposing the first two letters of the Greek word for Christ. And in the center is the IHS, another Christogram abbreviation of the Greek name for Jesus.
