Blakely's Verse

Back in the summer, I met Blakely on Wall Street and asked if I could snap a photo of her tattoo.

Initially, I just saw words, and then realized it was a Biblical verse. I'm not Christian, but I appreciate the overall sentiment and Blakely's commitment to filling an entire forearm with words:

The verse is "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

The citation is Philippians 4: 6-7, New International Version.

Blakely told me it is her favorite verse, as she suffers from anxiety, and this passage helps her cope with it.

There's an article in Huffington Post here about this specific verse and its meaningfulness in today's world.

She did not remember the name of the artist who did the work, but did note it was inked at Rose Tattoo Parlour (@rosetattooparlour) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Thanks to Blakely for sharing her verse with us here on Tattoosday!
