Meet Wassim Razzouk. His family came from Egypt and introduced the art of tattoos to Palestine almost 1000 years ago. They've since marked countless individuals. We met in his shop in the Old City of Jerusalem where we spoke about his ancestry, what it's like living in Israel as a Coptic Christian and why riding a motorcycle in the Holy Land is so badass. 

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: 

  1. Discover the meaning of a Jerusalem cross 
  2. Learn about the significance of tattoos for Christian pilgrims in the Holy Land
  3. The unique challenges of Christians living in Jerusalem

So interesting to hear the history, family tradition and love of country. I don’t have any tattoos but have always admired the art and historical significance in many cultures. Wassim, thank you for sharing your insights and passion. On my bucket list to one day visit your tattoo shop and possibly take the plunge and ink to mark the pilgrimage. Lauren, you are amazing as always, thank you for sharing!
