Share the Beauty: Whispering Danny


My amazingly bearded friend, Kevin, emailed me this a while back, and I had to share it:

This is a video of my Kansas City tattoo artist, Whispering Danny, sharing his Christian testimony. Danny tattooed the phoenix on my leg and the royal roundel on my right arm. Danny preaches the entire time you’re under his needle. The Word never stops flowing from his lips, and everytime he’s tattooed me or someone I know he’s always going on about the ignored greatness of the Gospel of Mark. I wanted to share Danny’s story because Danny was an important dude for me and several other men I know in Kansas City.

I love these I Am Second videos! So powerful. It just blows me away that heaven will be FULL of these sorts of stories. Beautiful stories. Beauty from Ashes stories. I reposted on FB and hope friends will hear Danny's story today! And that it will move them to consider their own stories... thanks for sharing it, Amber!

danny has a free touch-up policy in his shop, as long as he tattooed your original piece. and that's good. my royal roundel is needing some fresh color.

thanks for sharing, amber. i seem to remember some good times at the haines' home sharing stories and snotting tears and having church right there over our coffees. here's to more of that, fo sho.
