Is Getting a Tattoo Against the Bible?

It is explicitly written in Leviticus 19:28, ‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.’ So, at first glance, it might appear that tattoos are entirely forbidden. After all, it says right there—‘no tattoo marks.’ This is where you might be mistaken. The word tattoo stems from taboo, so there are certain tattoos that are taboo, if you will. It was common among Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans to tattoo false gods, images of their dead loved ones, and ceremonial symbols as a religious duty. This verse tells Christians not to imitate cultures that do not worship the Lord or use tattoos to gain some sort of magical power. Simply put, those sorts of practices are not Christian. But that doesn’t mean that all tattoos are banned! You just have to make sure it is a mere piece of art that represents something important to you, not a symbol worth worshipping in and of itself.

Scripture Tattoos Ideas

Finding Scripture Tattoo Ideas is easy with the way modern bibles are set up. Simply flip to the end and look for a glossary. The glossary will be full of topics and point to each scripture where the topic is mentioned…or, in the case of huge topics, the most important scriptures that relates to them. If you are looking for scriptures suited to your particular gender, read the stories that match your character. In example, if you want a scripture tattoo that highlights your womanhood, you could read about the story of Ruth. If you are looking for a story of a man among men, then Lot is your dude.

Scripture tattoos are more than just an image. They are a reminder. During challenging times, you can look at that tattoo and be reminded of the Lord. Tattoos are not meant to be worshipped, but they can remind you to have faith during hard times anyways. And what better way to serve the Lord than to decorate the temple he gave you when you were born?
