Belief Tattoos

Asia Argento


In May 2013, Asia Argento got this tattoo on her left forearm of the Patriarchal cross (☨) and “Firmeza” — a Portuguese word meaning firmness or stability.  It represents her steadfast belief in Christ. Both the cross and the writing are upside down so that they face inwards towards her when she looks at them.

She shared a photo of the tattoo along with a Portuguese hymn “Firmeza firmeza no amor / Firmeza firmeza aonde estou /Eu estou firme com meu Jesus / Eu estou firme nesta luz / Aonde estou” which translates to “Firmness firmness in love / Firmness steadfastness where I am / I am firm with my Jesus / I am firm in this light / Where I am”
