Tattoos, according to tattoo artist Danny Siviter, represent some of the most permanent statements a person can make. Some people use them to tell stories, some just to decorate their bodies, and some to proclaim what is most important in their lives. For many, whatâ€™s important is some aspect of their faith. Curated by Anna Golladay and Carl Greene, the exhibit Faithmarks, an initiative of St. Marks Church in Chattanooga, Tennessee, reflects the stories and spirituality of the cityâ€™s Northshore community. Each photograph is accompanied by a personal narrative. Portions of the exhibit are available to travel. More information is at ourfaithmarks.com.
