we've seen a resurgence in the popularity of tattoos and body piercings
in recent years, I believe that the Bible indicates that tattoos are
wrong, based upon the following scriptures:
Is It OK to Get a Tattoo?
Do not offer
the parts of
your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer
yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life;
and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.
I put this in
because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer
the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing
wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to
holiness. Romans 6:19
Do you not know
that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have
received from God? You are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:19
Do not cut your
bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.
