They never checked with the owner of their body. And as for the church… Pity the leader on judgment day.
Timothy D McCune [12/21/2015 10:05 AM]
Are you guys saying that the leader and those that have tattoos have sinned? Are you condemining their souls?
Vlad Stepanov [12/21/2015 10:15 AM]
Run away from that church.

I am not saying i would attend that church, just wondering what the overall thoughts on getting tattoos are? Do most people here think it is a sin issue or not and if so can you really support it with Biblical scripture? I ll check back at lunch time.

Leviticus 19:28 portion of the owners instruction book.

Link would have trouble keeping people quite in a #TATTOOchurch http://www.pentecostaltheology.com/is-it-biblical-for-christians-to-get-tattoos/

I have several tattoos, let me ask you do you keep all the laws in Leviticus !9? Like your clothing is any of it mix with two types of material or do you cut your hair,do you trim your beard if you have one,do you eat certain animals? etc…….. If you are going judge the law then look at the whole thing. and look at what they meant by cuts and tattoos.

I definitely don’t think churches should encourage tatoos.
I was talking with an in-law who said she was thinking of getting a tatoo in Hebrew. I said, I know, you can get that verse tatooed on you that says not to make any marks on your body.

Tatoos are ugly. You wouldn’t like it if someone sprayed grafitti all over your house. Why would you want to draw or write something you can’t erase from your body?
I really don’t get why singles would get tatoos. I was with a single late-30’s fellow whose a believer and fairly successful in the lobby of his apartment. He saw a young blonde woman with a beautiful face, but she was wearing shorts and had all these loud tatoos on her legs. We walked out and he said he didn’t understand why a beautiful girl like that would want to get tatoos. It’s like someone screaming for attention.
Sure, there are women men and women who see a tatted up member of the opposite sex and think that’s cool. But there are plenty of others who see it and who are repulsed by it, probably moreso among believers with a high view of scripture. When I was single, a girl with tatoos was out of my consideration set. I just wasn’t interested. I don’t care for graffiti. Beyond that, I think it may say something about the person’s decision-making. They make an irreversal decision like that, for what? Attention seeking? It also makes the person seem kind of wild to me.
It’s a good thing I found a godly wife, by the grace of God. The trend toward tatoos and body mofication can make it harder to find a wife. I’d imagine it would be really hard for a young man to find a tatoo-free virgin under 160 pounds that he finds attractive. And the girls who don’t like tattoos have it just as bad, at least in the US. I got married before the tatoo trend reall took off, but I married an Indonesian and it would probably be easier to find girls who fit those kind of criteria in other countries like that.

I have 26 tattoos..also have spiritual theology degree and what I learned is the word testament which means covenant so we have old and new covenant(old/new testament) Christ said he is new covenant and filled old covenant
