Truth Tats: The Christmas Story
Celebrating the Season of Advent with Truth Tats

Designed just for the season, Christmas Truth Tats present a new way of telling the story of Christ’s birth. Truth Tats are temporarily on your skin, permanently on your heart.

This is a five week program leading up to Christmas day, each packet of Truth Tats includes a family devotional booklet that kicks off each memory scripture of the week. The twenty accompanying Scripture tattoos are a visual way to continually applying and memorize God’s word. Each week opens with a set of four identical Scripture tattoo designs so that each family member can have his or her own tattoo! Week two, there is a new Scripture for memorization and four new tattoo designs, again identical designs so each person is memorizing the same Scripture.

For over 1,000 years Christians worldwide have been celebrating Advent, a time of spiritual preparation for the birth of Jesus Christ. The word “advent” comes from the Latin adventus meaning “coming toward”. So it is entirely appropriate that the four weeks prior to Christmas we will be preparing our hearts for His Advent.

Truth Tats are a unique way to celebrate the season as well as to “show and tell” God’s word to others. This is ideal for the classroom, family devotion time, and in personal Scripture memorization

AND NOW...WEEK ONE OF ADVENT (Click on pictures to enlarge):

My Thoughts: ThruthTats make learning Bible verses easy, fun and cool. Tattoos are the "in" thing, so it appeals to kids. When put on a hand, one can't help but see it and end up reading and imprinting it to your memory. You end up having the verse memorized by the end of the week because you see it and read it. The temporary tattoos come 6 to a page. One for each week of advent, and two for Christmas. If used properly, there will be enough for a family of 4. They apply easily, and can be removed with baby oil or rubbing alcohol. (The instructions contain a warning not to use if you have sensitive skin or are allergic to adhesive.) A nice 12 page booklet style devotional comes with the tattoos. Each week of advent, two pages are focus on the Bible verse and candle: The Prophets' Candle, The Bethlehem Candle, The Shepherds' Candle and The Angels' Candle. The scripture for the tattoos are taken from the Holman Christian Standard Bible. I have been to the site and searched online, and as far as I can tell, there are no other version options.
