Weekend A La Carte (12/17)

Tattoo Regrets - This is a really interesting article about the tattoo fad that has taken off in the past few years. “According to the Pew Research Center, more than 40 percent of Americans between the ages of 26 and 40 have at least one tattoo. Getting a tattoo, once the province of sailors rather than suburbanites, is so mainstream that tats are inked at the mall and seen on everyone from Middle American mothers to H Street hipsters to Hollywood starlets.” Not surprisingly, a lot of those people now have regrets.

50 Best Photos - The Big Picture’s 50 best photos from the natural world (taken in 2011, that is).

Getting Back in the Race - Christian Book Notes has a glowing review of Joel Beeke’s new book. “You can never go wrong with a resource by Joel Beeke even if you disagree with him on a specific doctrine. Getting Back in the Race is a book most Christians need to read but do not know it. Get a copy and see for yourself. I am grateful (as will you be) for Cruciform Press taking this next step as a publishing company and to do so with this particular title is excellent. I unreservedly recommend this book to all Christians.”

My Favorite Atheist - R.W. Glenn writes about Christopher Hitchens—his favorite atheist. 

Dribbble - This Dribbble account shows off some of Chris Koelle’s amazing art from the Revelation graphic novel he’s been working on.

Your Pastoral Life - Carl Trueman goes after Ed Young in this blog post.

Jesus, Joy of Highest Heaven - The Getty’s doing what they do.
