"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”

I have my ears pierced and plan on getting a tatoo........ but I plan for that to be a witness to others. Either a Bible verse or something like that.
ive only got the ears and navel......dont think ill get anymore. i def dont think ill get a tattoo..... everything thats important to me is in my heart i dont need it inked on me <3
Yeah i know i don't think there is anything with tattoos or piercings i had my lips pierced and i have 3 tattoos, and 4 ear piercings.

I am not a Christian.
I am a follower of Christ.
Jesus didn't say
"Drop everything and follow me... IF you don't have piercings, tattoo's, or dress differently than most do."
That's not what Christ is about.
While I think it's silly to get tattoo's with no meaning, that doesn't mean that you can't have them at all.
The extremist and elitist Holier than thou Christians will tell you it's wrong, but what evidence do they have to back it up?
We're under the NEW COVENANT people.
Jesus died so that we don't have to follow the laws of the old testament.
I don't have either, but I will get a few tattoos.
It's my body that God gave me, and the Holy Spirit lives inside of me.
I figure people who got tattoos when they were unsaved and have been saved are unforgivable? Salvation isn't only for those "without blemish" as you would probably call them, it is for EVERYONE.
I've just about had it with these close minded, judgmental bashers who won't let someone do anything their way without calling it ungodly.
You tell me,
Is having a tattoo ungodly?
Or is judging, accusing, and claiming someones act to be an abomination through an internet forum what Jesus would want you to do?
He wants you to love unconditionally, like he does.
Jesus doesn't care if you have tattoos. He loves you no matter what.
i used..to have alot of body pierece
i used..to have alot of body pierece 15 in ears, 1 lip ring, 1 nosepin, 1belly ring & planning to have a tattoo.. in my thigh,, but i think it wont matter as long as your heart is faithful in GOD..
I wouldn't mind having one. Maybe a bible verse or something. But currently I don't got any.

Just put in the second piercings in both my lobes a few days ago. And I have a heart on my ankle with the words, "Heal her soul, Carry her my angel," from the song "Carry Me Ohio," by Sun Kil Moon lol.
and.. just because you get older doesn't mean your piercings HAVE to come out, I never did it to be cool so if it became uncool I'd be just fine
1 Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. 2 One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. 3 The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.
This same logic can be applied to people with tattoos/piercings and people with none. Do not judge your fellow brother/sister. The one who has tattoos/piercings must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one without tattoos/piercings must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them.
have peircings in my ears. n soon will b getting a verse tattood on my hand. if u do it for the glory of god. i guess its a pretty cool thing.. personally. i dunno what others think.. but... i really dont think its a sin or anything unacceptable to god. as long as its all "good stuff"
