There's really nothing I can add to this:
York, Pa., Shops See Increase in Tattoos since 'The Passion of the Christ'
About two weeks ago, Josh LaRose saw "The Passion of the Christ" and had trouble putting his reactions into words.
The 20-year-old of Mount Wolf decided to put them in ink on his left forearm.
For five hours Friday, he sat at Built To Last Tattooing and Body Piercing at 315 W. Market St. in York while Jim Rossell tattooed a 10-inch portrait of Christ....
Typically, Rossell had been inking out one religious tattoo a month -- until the release of "The Passion of the Christ."
"Recently, it's been once a week," Rossell said. "It's been very large tattoos." ....
The tattoo artist has shown his own devotion through a picture of Christ on his arm, a crucifixion on his back and praying hands on his leg.
"I think it's a nice way for them to express their faith," Rossell said. "It's nice to see people feel confident about their faith."
(P.S. No, I don't think I'm falling for an April Fool's Day hoax -- here's the shop's site, and here's an earlier story about the shop and Rossell doing a brisk business in patriotic tattoos after 9/11.)
