I’m not allowed to post images yet, but I wanted to know if a tattoo I’m going to get would be morally wrong. It’s a Crucifix on top, and below it is a Polish Eagle. They are not connected but close together. My gut feeling is its not wrong, but just would like some input.
it’s an attractive image, yes.
But IMHO, you life would better exemplify your Christianity if you simply lived it out, not advertised on your skin.
But that’s just me. I’ve never seen a tattoo after a few years that didn’t looks extremely unattractive, no matter the subject matter.
I don’t think God makes mistakes when it comes to how we look. I wonder why we as people are always so dissatisfied with our appearance? :hmmm:
Well, I didn’t really ask for that type of opinion at all, but thank you anyway for your input I guess.
I assume with your username that you’re a female. Do you ever wear makeup or wear nail polish? I would then ask you why? God made you the way you were without any of those things.
Not looking for a debate. I’m 30 years well, well educated, and I would say intelligent. I’m not getting this tattoo to show off how Christian I am. I have my own personal reasons for getting it, which aren’t relevant to the question I’ve asked.
Please consider the following before getting a tattoo:
“You are not to gash your bodies when someone dies, and you are not to tattoo yourselves. I am the LORD.” [Leviticus 19:28]
“Your body, you know, is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you since you received him from God. You are not your own property; you have been bought and paid for. That is why you should use your body for the glory of God.” [1 Corinthians 6:19–20]
It also says a lot of things in Leviticus that do not apply to us today. My understanding is that tattoos fall under Mosaic law. I’ve talked to multiple priests who’ve said a tattoo is fine, but thank you for the input.
