California church members show faith with tattoos

(09-13) 12:18 PDT Anaheim, Calif. (AP) --

Church logo tattoos are the latest in offbeat testimony at an Orange County church that holds Sunday services in a punk rock nightclub and collects offerings in KFC buckets. City Church of Anaheim is celebrating its first year in operation and the goal of reaching a 200-member flock with a radical commitment to the congregation and community: Tattoos of the red-heart church logo.

Pastor Kyle Steven Bonenberger told worshippers that God "tattooed your name on his heart" and it was time for an everlasting commitment to Him and the church.

The Orange County Register reported about a dozen people got inked, fulfilling the pledge they made if the church doubled its normal attendance.

City Church started in a living room and moved to Anaheim's Chain Reaction Club as the congregation grew.

Tattoos and cults...history has never seen such thing. Jesus! I wonder if they wear black Nike's and live in a mansion in some rich community as one?

The scary thing is a cult could be similar to a RICO and that's more than two......hmmmmm

What's the difference between a cult, gang, crew, religion, political party, police department, fire department, etc?

Maybe one day we'll have someone from the above crew as a part of LST?

God bless them.

I love this part of the article:

"Pastor Kyle Steven Bonenberger told worshippers that God "tattooed your name on his heart" and it was time for an everlasting commitment to Him and the church."

I wonder who does God's tattoos? Are they also in Orange County? That'd be quite the resume builder!

    •  I woke up on my back a few times, i tried to avoid it but still managed to. I did 0 in way of aftercare, I kept the wrap on for a few hours after my tattoo then i took a shower and washed the gunk off and just left it. I took the following day of work so i could chill whilst it was a bit weapy but by the 3rd day i acted like i hadn't been tattooed. Healed fine.  
    • Yes indeed ... how it heals up will be the true measure of how well I've done.

      The outline had me wishing it was over already when I was only halfway through, so I was expecting the coloring to be hell ... but it was less painful.  :)  Either way, admittedly not the most pleasant place to get a tattoo! lol

      Focusing on doing good work probably helps alot ... 
    • As always, listen to your tattooer. But realistically a tattoo heals best with the less irritation and less sh*t that gets put on it. Re-wrapping at all is generally a no-no, especially no to the towel. As far as sleeping on it, the worst that happens is that you get stuck and have to take your sheet the next day into the shower with you. Maybe if you have a tendency to flip onto your back, propping some pillows around you to keep you from turning might work. Tattoos are pretty in-there from the get go so I wouldn't be too concerned.
