Singer Monica explained to the ladies of The Real during their “girl talk” segment why she has the face of Jesus on her arm. When discussing tattoo’s with the ladies, Monica explained that she has tattoos all over her body, and they all represent something that she has gone through in her life. The singer went on to reveal that there was a time in her life, she didn’t even know why her eyes opened, so she wanted to look at the face of Jesus every day when she woke up.
“I am, all over. But you know what, each tattoo represents something that I experienced, that I got through. Everything that you see on me, I can tell you exactly what happened. The reason that the face of Jesus is on my arm, my mom said, “You know Jesus, you don’t need to look at him every day!”
“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.” And 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. So everything on me, my neck’s done. My back’s done. My entire right leg is done. My arm is done. And uh… I wear it proudly at this point now.”
