Tattooing Religious Figures

Jesus Christ Drawing by Ramon Maiden

It is always risky drawing over sacred images, because it may be viewed as a lack of respect to a religious group. But Ramon Maiden is ballsy enough to ink over Jesus Christ and Saint Teresa of Avila. His work is influenced from Classical European and Mexican art, and Polynesian and American old-school tattoos.
