            Kylie only has little red tattoos because red ink can be most easily covered with make up for a photo shoot. This guy is super sick tho!

                            Tattoo artists will pay back God for every drop of ink that he used to defile the temple of God which is the human body. Unless they receive the Spirit of Chris to on earth - they are in for a very long dark eternity. And anyone reading this, wake up. If you only knew how AMAZING it feels to receive heaven now within you, to receive the Living Water to receive the Spirit of Christ in your body... if you were to ask Jesus for 1 dream tonight to show you about the Living Water and how amazing it feels to be shown to you and given to you... ask tonight.. then you will understand how amazing the gift of God was that you ignored all your life. You need the Living Water to be allowed entry into heaven. Heaven's dress code is this: All who desire entry must receive a blissful love and power in their flesh on earth..... called the Spirit of Christ. Ill tell you what it feels like ready? IF you have had a dream in your lifetime about flying..... a good dream about flying..... take that feeling... and imagine this:FEELING THAT HERE ON EARTH FOR REAL NON STOP. If you felt that here on earth you would not need to get high, drunk or anything... because you feel like you're FLYING all the time! This is the Spirit of Christ aka the Living Water. And the gift is so awesome that people will hate themselves for not asking for it in life to enter heaven. Not only did they not have true joy on earth, not only could they have felt HEAVEN and FLYING here on earth... but now they missed heaven too. Stop and think. What am I asking you now? Tonight before bed ask "Jesus I am not Christian i am asking you this one time, here and now, show me a dream of the Living Water Spirit of Christ and what I would feel if I received it on earth, show me a clear dream or vision about this please then if i like what i feel in the vision then i will come after it hard and pray for it until it is given."

                            I hope all of you know that I want you to feel heaven now --- not just later.. but here and now -- and I beg you to ask that 1 prayer tonight before bed.. please.

                                                              bro tattoos have been around alot longer than since the 1920s. American sailors would get tattoos during the war of 1812 to avoid forced conscription into the British Navy, as documentation was fragile and the easiest way to show your American identity was to have significant shapes tattooed on your skin to show allegiance. Learn the history of your craft before you spout bull.

He’s not about the react factor and he explains the theory behind it too 👏 He’s a gem, no wonder he’s at the top. Would love to see more of him breaking down tattoos
