I have people regularly searching for Joel Houston’s Tattoo on this site.  So it was about time I made a bit more information available

Joel as a young man has enjoyed the sun, surf and the relaxed culture of the Aussie lifestyle.

At some point he got a tattoo. So what is Joel’s tattoo? Or what is the design?

We have rotated it via photoshop, so we could have a look at it from various angles. We could not work it out at first. So we typed in Joel Houstons tatt to see if we could come up with any site where it said what it was.

Then we came across a site that said the tattoo was of a japanese wave, like the big wave

So then we did research into those to see if it looked the same.

Because his tattoo is in black and white, it does make it harder to see what it is, than if it was in colour.

By rotating it and comparing it to other japanese wave tatts, that is what we thought it most resembled.It was in the rotation of it we could see the resemblance, not looking at it directly.

Although he has added rays to his.

We then tried doing a further search for the meaning, because japanese tattoos are all the rage these days, like maori tattoos.

So we wanted to see if there was anything spiritual to it.

We did find some sites that did list spiritual meanings for all japanese tattoos to do with the waves, but they gave a variety of meanings,

It’s clearer now though…. A  japanese wave design, with a sun combo motif.

It would seem Joel’s is in reference to the waves and sea, and the sun, the world of surfing, and being care free.

He seems to  have a tattoo on the other arm, but we cant work that out. He has a anchor on his other arm.

His wife in Joel’s facebook, has a tattoo on her torso  which was some writing.

Again as this stage we could not work out what it said.

By going to facebook and twitter, you can see that these people are very worldly christians in many ways.

Oh, and his bro benjamin (Ben Houston) has a tattoo as well. The amusing thing is Brian doesn’t seem to like them.

Paul admonished Timothy about faith and good doctrine, but never once mentioned the need for a well placed Tattoo?

1 Timothy 4:6-9

If you put the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shall be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto you have attained. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profits little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.

Then there’s Carl Lentz’ arm full ?
