Zeus, hurling his thunderbolt, emerges from within a twisted, dead tree. Black and gray, white ink accents, and a light teal to make the lightning glow. Upper view.

For many years people have confused biblical holiness with a long list of rules to follow. The idea of “holiness” became not smoking, not drinking, not cussing, not dancing, not playing cards, not going to parties, not wearing pretty clothes, not wearing any makeup, no jewelry, not having a nice hairstyle and more. You had to cut or not cut your hair depending on which brand or religion you followed, and you definitely couldn’t have a tattoo or, if you're a man, put an earring in your ear! That kind of behavior would just put the religious people over the edge! (Source: joycemeyer.org)
Tattoos are more popular than ever. Currently one in five U.S. adults has at least one tattoo (21percent) which is up from the 16 percent and 14 percent who reported having a tattoo in 2003 and 2008, respectively, by the Harris Poll. Entertainers, professional athletes, and even a 2009 version of Barbie, have multiple, and very visible, tattoos. With such prevalence and rising interest, Christians rightfully ask what the Bible says about tattoos.
The short answer is...nothing. At least nothing definitive. The Bible makes no specific reference to tattoos as we understand them in modern times. Some Christians condemn all tattooing as immoral because God clearly forbids them in Leviticus 19:28. Since the word tattoo does appear in this verse in some popular English translations, this argument seems straightforward. For example, the NIV reads, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.” (Source: www.crosswalk.com)
A. In the Book of Isaiah 49:16-17, we read that Israel was in a time of great trouble. God was judging them for their rebellion and sin. The Babylonians had come in and destroyed their country and carried many away captive. The people were crying out, "Where is God in all of this? Has He forgotten us?"
I’m a city boy whom God has exiled to the countryside. If ever there was a question about God’s sense of humour, my being out here – three miles from the town of Royston in Herefordshire – should confirm that the Almighty’s enjoys a laugh. (Source: www.bravedaily.com)
“Close both eyes see with the other one. Then we are no longer saddled by the burden of our persistent judgments our ceaseless withholding our constant exclusion. Our sphere has widened and we find ourselves quite unexpectedly in a new expansive location in a place of endless acceptance and infinite love.” (Source: www.goodreads.com)
Are there Bible verses on God tattoos? What about Bible verses tattoos, what does Scripture say about that? Obtaining a tattoo can spark gospel-centered conversation and act as a missional ice-breaker, but Christians without tattoos are identifiable without ink on their skin. (Source: www.christianity.com)
For those whose bodies already bear the marks of a pre-Christian past, take comfort: they are still part of personal testimony. In conversation with others who sport tattoos, they provide a natural avenue to discussing the gospel and demonstrating that the important change has taken place inwardly, where Christ has exquisitely and tenderly marked the inner person.
