What's your trib? Who's your mission field? Does that require a tattoo?
What will it do to your professional career?
I know of a girl who got tattoos. Then she was called to the mission field.
Now she has to wear long dresses and long pants whenever she goes out, because it will work against her. Her mission is in the tropics.
All things are permitted, not all things are profitable.

To be honest, I really don't understand the purpose in tattooing to begin with. But I do wonder how putting a christian label on a pagan practice glorifies God? I kind of look at getting a 'christian' tattoo the same as 'christian' yoga, or walking a 'christian' labyrinth or engaging in 'christian' repetitive prayers/mantras. The two don't go together. (I know my examples are more spiritual practices, but hopefully you get my drift).

Personally, I dont have any tattoos, and I dont really plan on ever getting one. However...
'You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard. 'You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the LORD.
If tattoos are forbidden, so is shaving your beard.
I agree. I have no tattoos but have 3 piercings in each earlobe. I'm thinking that we are too eager to pick and choose the Leviticus laws, according to our personal preference. (I eat pork, too.)

Tattooes are a thing of this world. And there are alot of people defending being like the world on this post....we are instructed not to be of the world, but to be more like Christ after our second birth.
1 John 2:15 quite clearly tells us:
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
I would say its worth a check to make sure our heart is in the right place.

Let's face it alot of things we do is of this world. Having your car washed and waxed is not spiritual but it is not a sin either. Too many times, Christians want to make things sin that are not sin. God is more concerned about the heart that tattoos on your body.
