I vividly remember a close family friend telling me that I was disobeying God by getting a tattoo and because of its permanence, I was in a state of constant defiance. (This was after the tattoo was already there. What was I to do about it then, except take on the heavy cloak of guilt placed before me?)
He quoted scripture (from memory of course) to back up his “point” from which the core of his unsolicited advice originated.
I was 17 years old.
I proceeded to get several more tattoos…and piercings.
Recently I have been reading different views on this subject.
This is a great post about tattoos of all things. Written by Joy over at Even A Girl Like Me. This is an engaging article about others perceptions on tattooing. Joy also addresses the issue of sins, what if they visibly evident to others?
