Ancient Tattoo Shop in Jerusalem Has Been Tattooing Christian Pilgrims Since the Crusades

Devoted Christians are getting tattoos from a 700-year-old tattoo shop in Old Jerusalem.

Many modern Christians find tattooing an unwelcome practice. Some Christians even find it immoral due to a certain passage in the Bible that warns against marking one’s skin. Interestingly, there is one family-run tattoo shop in Jerusalem that has survived and thrived for hundreds of years tattooing Christians, or specifically, Christian pilgrims.

The old tattoo shop located in Old Jerusalem has been in the business for over 700 years. Run by the Razzouk family, who are Coptic Christians, the business started in 14th century Egypt.
