Some Christians might not agree with many believers’ decision to get a tattoo, but Christian R&B star Monica Brown says the permanent inking of Jesus Christ on her arm has strengthened her faith.

Brown, the 36-year-old “Code Red” singer, appeared as a guest co-host on the hit daytime talk show “The Real” this week where she spoke about the Jesus tattoo on her arm. Even the singer’s mother voiced her opposition to the permanent Jesus tattoo.

“My mom said, ‘You know Jesus, you don’t need to look at him every day,'” she revealed on the talk show with a laugh. “But I wanted to look at Him every day because there was a time when I would wake up and I didn’t even know why my eyes were even opening. I’m like, ‘just let me go back to sleep, make the pain go away.'”

During her debilitating depression, Brown said her tattoo reminded her of her Christian faith.

“I would look at my arms, even when I showered, and I would get this level of strength that I couldn’t explain to other people,” she said. “I wear it proudly at this point now.”
