The inspiration behind this black and grey tattoo of Jesus, is the Pietà – an internationally heralded Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo.  Originally commissioned for the French Cardinal Jean de Bilheres, this sculpture was built as  a funeral monument, and the piece itself is a body of art depicting Jesus on the lap of Virgin Mary after he was crucified.

The Pietà (1498–1499) is a world-famous work art housed in St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.
 

It’s an image to be contemplated, and the realism and weight of this statuary piece makes it one of the most adorned works of Michelangelo. Since its introduction, it has been the subject of many reincarnations by artists from past to present and a powerful piece which relates to death, sacrifice and human emotion. From the complexities of light vs shadow, and the finesse work used to sculpt the marble, the Pietà an art piece which holds weight both historically and artistically.
