There’s no guesswork when it comes to knowing what this is. It’s a straight up crucifix comprised of iron nails and either vine or wire. The ruggedness of the cross links to the the crucifixion, in which Jesus was beaten and paraded through the streets. While a lot of cross tattoos use similar imagery, this is the first one I’ve seen using this style, and I’ve got to say, Jackie did a great job creating it.
