Your body is your temple.

Are you sick of the norms that society presses on you? "Don't get a tattoo that shows!" "Why are you covering up your body with tattoos and piercings?" I believe that our bodies are our temples. We should adorn them, advertise them with the messages that we choose to relay, and tell our most relentless stories! These are some quotes I have come to live by:

Our bodies are apt to be our autobiographies.  -Frank Gillette

You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body. -C.S. Lewis

Every man is the builder of a temple, called his body, to the god he worships, after a style purely his own, nor can he get off by hammering marble instead. We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones. -Henry David Thoreau

If you guys have any extraordinary piercings, tattoos, or other ways you express yourself using your body, send them to me at and I will show them in future ''Your body is your temple" posts :)
