    I understand most people do not respect tattoos and piercings. But Mr. conservative in his suit will have a hard time trying to get the biker, street kid, etc... to listen to him talk about anything, especially Jesus. It takes someone who has walked in these types of shoes before andthen found the great and wonderful joy of living for Jesus. Most of the time we have tattoos or peircings.

    I have 3 tattoos from my wild and crazy days when I lived for the world. I do not think I would get another one, but you would have to kill me in order to get me to remove them. They are part of my Testimony, they are scars of the old me. Without them, I would not be who I am today ... A Child of GOD!!!

    It took a few years, but I can now stand on my past. This is one of the ways I try to glorify God. I am no longer ashamed of this time period in my life. I have been forgiven.
    I don't want any tattoos, except for one on my wrists that say "Broken Chains"
    and I want gauges, but that's all.

    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.

    you dont own ur body

    has God himself given you permishion to graffiet ur body or punch holes in it?
    -no

    therefore ungodly(:
    I have multiple piercings and tattoos. I don't find them ungodly at all. If God didn't want them on your body wouldn't that be stated somewhere in the bible? I haven't ever seen it said that they are ungodly and if they don't describe something bad or morally incorrect then I don't see a problem with them.

    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?
    Levitical law?
    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?
    NO.
    He wants you to love unconditionally, like he does.
    Jesus doesn't care if you have tattoos. He loves you no matter what.

    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

    3 words that can be a valid excuse for almost any behavior. "It was college..."

    Used to be 4 words, "It was the 60's," but most of the people in here, including myself, can't say they were around then.

    Romans 14:1-4

    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.

    Blessings
