I don't see nothing wrong with them if you keep it low.alot of peopleput more into the tattoos than they do for their family's and than worry about how they are going to pay their bills.

THE VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT SPEAKS OUT AGAINST TATTOOING IS LEVITICUS 19:28. LEVITICUS IS LOCATED IN THE "TORAH". THE TORAH IS THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE OR THE "LAW BOOKS" THEY WERE WRITTEN BY MOSES (A PROPHET FROM GOD SENT TO FREE THE ISRAELITES FROM EGYPT). IN THE BIBLE THERE ARE TWO BASIC PARTS, THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT. THE OLD TESTAMENT IS THE STORY OF GODS CREATION OF MAN. AFTER GOD CREATED MAN, ADAM AND EVE (THE FIRST PEOPLE GOD CREATED) SINNED AND FELL FROM GRACE. AFTER THE FALL OF MAN FROM GRACE MAN BEGAN TO MULTIPLY AND SIN ENGULFED THE WORLD. GOD SAW THIS SIN AND WANTED TO STOP IT. SO GOD DECIDE TO DESTROY THE EARTH AND START ANEW. NOAH WAS THEN CHOSEN TO KEEP THE HUMAN RACE ALIVE. GOD HAD NOAH BUILD AN ARK (BIG BOAT) WHICH HE FILLED WITH TWO OF EVERY CREATURE. NOAH, HIS WIFE, SONS, AND THEIR WIVES WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE SAVED FROM THE GREAT FLOOD. AFTER THE FLOOD NOAH SENT HIS SONS OFF AND THEY CREATED DIFFERENT RACES OF PEOPLE.

THE DIFFERENT LANGUAGES COME FROM THE TOWER OF BABEL. GOD COMMANDED THAT PEOPLE SPREAD OUT AND POPULATE THE EARTH, BUT THERE WAS A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO DECIDED TO DEFY GOD BY BUILDING A HUGE TOWER THAT WOULD REACH GOD. GOD WAS DISPLEASED WITH THIS SO HE CONFUSED THEIR LANGUAGES SO THEY COULD NO LONGER COMMUNICATE. IT WORKED BECAUSE THE PEOPLE THEN SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

AFTER ALL OF THIS PEOPLE STARTED TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN RELIGIONS AND CULTURES. FROM ALL THIS CAME A "NEOLITHIC" SOCIETY (PRE CIVILIZATION BUT AFTER RECORDED HISTORY). PEOPLE BEGAN TO SPLIT OFF AND THE HUMAN RACE BECAME DIFFERENT INDEPENDENT RACES. IN THE OLD TESTAMENT GOD KEEPS RECORD OF THE JEWISH RACE (THE CHOSEN PEOPLE), THEIR HISTORY, FUTURE, TROUBLES AND TRIALS. THE OLD TESTAMENT ALSO MAKES WAY FOR THE NEW TESTAMENT OR THE "COMING OF JESUS CHRIST". SO IN A NUTSHELL THE OLD TESTAMENT IS ABOUT THE JEWISH RELIGION, HOW IT WAS FORMED, ITS LAWS, RULES, AND HOW IT WAS KEPT TOGETHER.

IN THE OLD JEWISH RELIGION PEOPLE HAD TO FOLLOW A STRICT SET OF LAWS TO FALL INTO FAVOR WITH GOD. THE RULES ARE SO RIDGED THAT NO PERSON COULD EVER FOLLOW THEM. THE RULES RANGE FROM HOW AND WHAT YOU EAT, TO HOW TO TRIM YOUR HAIR AND BEARD. GOD WANTED HIS PEOPLE TO BE DIFFERENT AND DISTINGUISHED FROM ALL OTHER CULTURES. HE DID THIS IN PART BY THE RULES THAT HE LAID DOWN FOR THE JEWS. GODS GOAL WAS TO KEEP A SOLID BLOOD LINE FOR THE COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.

THE NEW TESTAMENT DEALS WITH THE COMING OF CHRIST, HIS LIFE, DEATH, THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES, PROPHECY FOR THE FUTURE, AND SALVATION.

NOW WE HAVE A BASIC VIEW OF THE BIBLE AND HOW IT WAS WRITTEN, LETS LOOK AT THE SPECIFIC VERSE THAT SPEAK ABOUT TATTOOING. THE VERSE IS LEVITICUS 19:28, IT SAYS " 'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD ." CLEARLY IT STATES THAT YOU ARE NOT TO GET TATTOOED, BUT WHY? IN THE TIMES THAT THIS WAS WRITTEN PEOPLE IN SURROUNDING CULTURES (PAGAN) WOULD CUT AND TATTOO THEMSELVES FOR THE DEAD, AND TO GAIN FAVOR WITH PAGAN gODS. GOD DID NOT WANT HIS PEOPLE TO BE CONFUSED WITH EVERYDAY SOCIETY SO HE DID NOT WANT THEM TO TATTOO THEMSELVES. NOW, WE CAN NOT PICK JUST ONE VERSE OUT OF THE BIBLE AND NOT LOOK AT WHAT SURROUNDS IT. PLEASE READ THE EXCEPT BELOW AND THERE WILL BE MORE COMMENTARY BELOW IT.

LEVITICUS 19: 19-28
19 " 'Keep my decrees.
" 'Do not mate different kinds of animals.
" 'Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.
" 'Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
20 " 'If a man sleeps with a woman who is a slave girl promised to another man but who has not been ransomed or given her freedom, there must be due punishment. Yet they are not to be put to death, because she had not been freed. 21 The man, however, must bring a ram to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting for a guilt offering to the LORD . 22 With the ram of the guilt offering the priest is to make atonement for him before the LORD for the sin he has committed, and his sin will be forgiven.
23 " 'When you enter the land and plant any kind of fruit tree, regard its fruit as forbidden.[2] For three years you are to consider it forbidden [3] ; it must not be eaten. 24 In the fourth year all its fruit will be holy, an offering of praise to the LORD . 25 But in the fifth year you may eat its fruit. In this way your harvest will be increased. I am the LORD your God.
26 " 'Do not eat any meat with the blood still in it.
" 'Do not practice divination or sorcery.
27 " 'Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.
28 " 'Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD .
IF WE LOOK AT THE EXCERPT WE SEE THAT A MAN CAN NOT SHAVE HIS BEARD, EAT HIS FRUIT FROM A TREE HE PLANTS FOR FOUR YEARS, PLANT TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF PLANTS IN HIS GARDEN, OR WEAR CLOTHING MADE FROM TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF CLOTH. SO WHAT DO YOU SAY THE NEXT TIME A PERSON CRITICIZES YOU FOR A TATTOO? YOU TELL THEM THEIR POLYESTER BLEND SHIRT WILL SEND THEM STRAIGHT TO HELL. THESE LAWS WERE INTENDED TO HELP THE PEOPLE GROW AND TO KEEP THEM SEPARATE. IN OLD DAYS YOU COULD PICK OUT A JEW BY THE WAY THEY DRESSED, SPOKE, AND ATE. THE LAWS FOR FARMING WERE WRITTEN TO MAKE THEIR HARVEST LARGER. BACK THEN THE PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE THEY HAVE NOW AND THEY NEEDED GUIDANCE.
WHEN CHRIST CAME HE FULFILLED THE OLD LAW, NO ONE COULD LIVE UP TO THE LAW SO GOD PROVIDED A SACRIFICE THAT WOULD ATONE FOR ALL SINS. THE SACRIFICE WAS HIMSELF. SO IF CHRIST FULFILLED THE LAW MODERN CHRISTIANS ARE NOT BOUND TOO IT.

I personally don't like them I think they make people look trashie. And when I look at them I can't help but laugh because I think about how it is gonna look when the get old and it gets all saggie and when they get like 60 how funny the tatoo that suited them when they were a teenager now not so much at 60. But the biggest reason is that the Bible tells you not too.

I personally like them sexy on a man or a woman. It is a personal choice. The bible also speaks about other things being a sin also but that doesn't mean people don't do them what about homosexuals I don't see a post on here about that. Anyway everyone sins and you shouldn't judge people because they have a tattoo you don't know where that person was in their life when they got the tattoo maybe they hadn't found God yet. There is a lot of people that are into the chruch and God thing that have tattoos but I guess that is ok being they keep them hid.

I think that it is someones personal lifestyle choice. I have several piercings and tattoo's. If it is done in a tasteful manner, it can compliment someones appearance. It is a shame though to be located in an area which is so shallow minded and ignorant to the idea that someone who has body art is automatically presumed to be ( pardon my language)a "skank" or a "junkie". I attend church, have never abused any substances, and have a Masters Degree and apparently someone can be well educated, be sober, and believe in God all while having body art. I do not "hide" my tattoo's or piercings. I believe that when we pass our bodies will turn to dirt, our souls are what go on. If a church had graffiti on it are you going to be so shallow as to assume it is not a holy place? In my opinion it is wrong of those to judge people like me based on appearance. I know many other individuals who have body art that are outstanding people that try hard to change the ideals of what people have on those with tattoo's and piercings. I don't believe that the good Lord doesn't love me or anyone else based on what's on their skin. When my judgment day comes it won't be anyone but God passing judgment on myself, and I'm pretty sure that the ink on my skin isn't going to be what he is most concerned with. Maybe people should be more concerned with what they are doing with their lives, and less concerned with what others are doing.

I'm all about pro-choice. If they want to have something on their bodies for the rest of their lives more power to them.
