Religious Tattoos

Many Christians, especially young Christians, now wish to have religious tattoos as a permanent spiritual and meaningful reminder of their faith and all that they hold dear. This could be references to family, friends or their basic Christian beliefs and principles. The idea of a religious tattoo sometimes brings conflict into a family and at such times it is good to refer to the Bible for guidance and discover what the Bible says about tattoos.

What does the Bible say about Religious Tattoos?
The subject of religious tattoos is referred to in Leviticus 19:28 which states "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves", but these words should be put into perspective with the rest of the passage which refers to pagan rituals. The New International Version (NIV) Bible verse in 1 Corinthians 10:23 can be read for guidance in a debate as to whether religious tattoos are permissible or beneficial.

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial.
“I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive.


Inspirational Religious Tattoos
The decision as to whether religious tattoos are permissible or desirable is an important one. The permanent nature of Religious tattoos should be fully evaluated. Each is entitled to their own opinion and our view is that religious tattoos proclaim the Christian faith and belief. The words contained in a religious tattoo often open interesting conversations and may be viewed  as spreading good news and glad tidings by the word of God. Jesus encouraged evangelism in Mark 16:15:

 "And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
