Hi, I’m Aaron Davis. I am the author of Quantum Christianity: Believe Again (to be released May 1st, 2015), The Spirit of Religion and Love They Neighbor…? When a Spirit of Religion Opposes the Heart of God.
Many people know me as “The Tattooed Preacher” and yes, I’m aware of the Velveeta factor attached to the name.
I set out to change it a few years ago & spoke with a friend (a marketing guru who just happens to be responsible for the syndication of the 3 top shows in the history of Television), and he advised me that I would be foolish to discard a name so brandable and memorable as “TattooPreacher”, especially after spending a decade building the brand.
And of course, he was right. Even though I chose the name on a whim many years ago, and in reality have very little identity attached to my tattoo’s (other than just liking how they look), it has been the catalyst that has opened the door for me to minister to so many people who may not normally grace the doors of a church…(Drug Dealers, Gang Members, Prostitutes, Addicts, Agents, Authors, Producers, Rock Stars, Porn Stars, Country Music Stars, Actors, Dancers, I’ve even been called on to officiate private celebrity weddings…etc). And honestly, it has been the curiosity surrounding the cheesy “TattooPreacher” name that opened the door for so many of these ministry opportunities…
When I see people that I don’t really know they don’t typically ask, “Are you Aaron Davis”, they ask “Are you the Tattooed Preacher?” So I embrace it. As a wise country boy once said, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…”
About the Blog
This is my personal blog. It is focused on “Spiritual Development and Encouragement” with an emphasis on understanding what it means for people to experience the Kingdom of God in the earth. I’m a fan of science and quantum physics, I love humor and have been an Ordained Minister & Pastor for over 20 years. What I write about often cross pollenates between these subjects.
My goal is to create content that is insightful, inspiring, out-of-the-box, and thought provoking in hopes that it will challenge spiritual growth in people at any level of faith.
I typically post two – three times a week and attempt to keep the posts under 500 words. (My older blogs are longer but I’ve recently made some length adjustments on the newer ones).
If you are new to my site you might want to check out a few of my top posts.

I spent 8 years of my life as a law enforcement officer serving as a D.A.R.E Officer, School Resource Officer, Detective
Sergeant (criminal investigations-working everything from vandalism to homicide), a S.W.A.T team member, and was awarded Officer of the Year in 2002…I was mandated to take a medical retirement after an attempt was made on my life in the line of duty.
I’m an Ordained Minister & Pastor of over 20 years and am currently the Online Campus Pastor at The Oasis Church in Nashville, Tennessee with pastors Danny and Jillian Chambers.
I genuinely appreciate the differences in people and personality types! My personal ministry mission statement is “Touching the Untouchable and Reaching the Unreachable”. I just love people…The ones who like and go to church AND the ones who don’t…
“What Religion Are You…?”
As a “Tattooed” Preacher, I am often asked what my spiritual background is…Because of what they’ve been told about Christianity and Tattoo’s many are shocked to hear that I am absolutely a Christian! 110%!
I was raised in church in the “Down-River” Detroit area. I went to Bible College and have dedicated my life to the studying the Bible, theology and religion. I recreationally study science, quantum physics, history, psychology & sociology (but am by no means a professional in those fields).
I recognize that a stereotype of many significantly “tattooed” people is an underlying rebellious attitude against those
who don’t believe or look as they do. And also realize that many times this stereotype accompanies an opposition to
Just for the record, I’m NOT “that guy”. I’ve studied church history and I have a deep level of respect for where the body of Christ has come from. I’m NOT one who adamantly looks to replace what is traditionally respected, but rather believe we need to build off of that foundation. My desire is to see the body of Christ united in purpose rather than divided over semantics. We all have something to contribute to the whole!
Whether they would agree with me or I, them, I honor those who have gone before me to pave the way for what I am able to experience today as a result of their life investment and Kingdom contribution.
I have been a Youth Pastor, an Associate Pastor, a traveling evangelist, a street evangelist, a church elder, a worship
leader and ministry consultant. I’ve served on the board of trustees in one of the most respected ministries in the US, I have fed the homeless, worked with inner-city youth, ministered to gang members and drug addicts, preached in other countries. At one time I had a top 10 blog on the largest social network in the world. As an Armor-bearer I have personally served some of the most noted men in ministry today and I am again currently pursuing an evangelistic ministry both state side and abroad (feel free to contact me to arrange speaking engagements).
I’ve been married to my wife, Lisa for 18 years and we have one son named, Rocky. We currently live in Nashville, Tennessee.
In my free time I enjoy writing, skateboarding & riding dirtbikes with my son, riding my Harley Davidson Road King, Scuba Diving, seeing an occasional movie, shooting guns, hanging out with friends and family, healing the sick… you know, normal Christian stuff…
