What is a.c.t.

The Alliance of Christian Tattooers was founded during October of 2011 in Mesa Arizona. We are a group of individuals within the tattoo community, joined together by faith in Christ, for the purpose of expanding God’s kingdom inside the tattoo community. All people are welcome to join the group as friends and supporters of our ministry. We are not a church, but our members are the church. We do not collect a tithe or donations but we encourage you to be part of a bible based church and tithe there. We believe that Jesus is the one true son of God and that He died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins for all who believe in Him and that He was resurrected on the third day. We also believe that God has given us gifts and talents that we may be a blessing to others.   The purpose of our organization is to bring unity among believers in the industry, to spread the gospel to others, to use our blessings to bless others and to expand God’s kingdom on earth. We are a servant ministry focused on spreading the gospel within the tattoo community. We host bible studies, charity events, and community outreaches. 

15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
— Joshua 24:15 (NIV)
