He served in the America Armed Forces. Now a soldier of the cross and fights still, to turn America back to God. In God, Country, and Tattoos: A Cry for Freedom, Dennis Dwyer (biker, award-winning tattoo artist and seminarian), recounts the history of the tattoo arts and expounds on America's Bible-based origins.
America has changed over the last four decades, and not for the good. From the unique vantage point of his tattoo parlor, and by exchanging personal journeys and stories with thousands of people from across America and the world, Dwyer takes a loving look back at America's history, while viewing the future with a tear in his eye. Still, Dwyer sees hope for America.
America has hope, if we act now, sharing America's incredible history and rich spiritual foundation with younger generations. "God, country, and tattoos: each of these three, through the tension each creates in the others, has shaped my life, forming the foundation upon which I stand," the author writes.
You will be inspired and moved as you read of Dwyer's broken past, new birth in Christ, and his plea to America to return to God in, God, Country, and Tattoos: A Cry for Freedom.

Written by one of Dennis' professors: "Dennis Dwyer has written a very interesting and challenging book built upon his many and varied experiences over the years. The tattoo industry has changed significantly from its very meager beginnings when Dennis first started tattooing to its present multi-million dollar enterprise. Dennis has been there through the significant changes and is certainly one of the best-known artists of today. His time as Executive Director of Alliance of Professional Tattooing and his leadership role with Tattoo Tour convention business also gave him a good look at how the tattooing industry has grown and developed. But this book is not just about the tattooing industry, it also has many words of wisdom which Dennis has learned over the years-most of the times the hard way-but which also makes the story that much more interesting. The title sums up the story well for each of these areas have dramatically shaped Dennis' life and the story is certainly worth reading." - Dr. Paul Wegner, Professor, Phoenix Seminary, AZ.
