As a tattoo, it's nice...
I have noticed that some people have declared this hypocritical, which is an interesting point of view considering the scripture in Leviticus 19:28. You mentioned that this was the old law, and you mentioned that Jesus nullified the old law with two new commandments. I don't believe he nullified the old law, but simplified it, condensing the 10 commandments into 2.
There are biblical references that may argue against tattoos, such as those referring to Christian's bodies being the temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Romans 12:1). Would you add a mural to the wall of the Sistine Chapel, could be the rhetorical analogy used in that case.
But then, we also have the argument that may be presented in 1 Corinthians 10:31, which states: "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." Will your tattoo be giving glory to God, or to your own body and self?
Another interesting scripture that may be open to interpretation, speaking of Jesus Christ, Revelation 19:16 "And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”"1
