Three years ago I was really religious and never thought that would change. I had decided that I would get a large cross tattoo to always remind me that my faith was important and that I should never forget about the importance of my faith. If I had only known then where I would be today, then I might have gotten it upside down... ha ha.
Seriously though, I was staring in the mirror today and realized how hypocritical it is to have this symbol forever etched onto my body when I now know I could never go back to believe such crazy things. I began to wonder if I should get it covered up as something else, have it altered in some way, or leave it as it is to remind me of who I once was and the crazy journey I have been on.
If I covered it up, I would want to cover it with something to show I am no longer a christian, but a man of logic and reason. I would want to show others I am an atheist, a sceptic, and a person who believes science is the best way to understand things.
If I altered it, I would either change the trinity symbol found in the center of the cross to an atheist symbol of some kind, or I would add something else to it.
Or should I just leave it as it is?
I am open to any good advice that anyone would be willing to provide. What advice would you give me and why? Thanks everyone.
