Is getting a tattoo a sin in Gods eyes?

Report as

Conflicting stories......
The body is a temple.....yet we have "free will"......
There is no commandment saying tattoos are to be avoided.......
I guess it would also depend on what the tattoo is......like, if the tat said "SATAN RULES", then I'd be fairly sure that God would frown upon it.......

Hi NAFTA here is a verse in Lev 19:28?“‘And YOU must not make cuts in YOUR flesh for a deceased soul, and YOU must not put tattoo marking upon yourselves. I am Jehovah.

The ten were part of more than 600 laws given to the nation. Those laws were given to Jew's only.

no. only the Jews were told not to get tattoos (make no mark in your body unto the dead) because the pagan priests of the day would carve, burn and tattoo images of their deities on themselves and the Jews in the Old Testament were not to have any association with that

Some would say yes. It says to treat your body as a temple. This is not a new argument. Is it going to be something that puts God in a good light? If your standing with God is good. Look up scripture that talks about this, then decide. Now i got tatts before i was Christian. I have thought about getting tatt on back of a cross. Which would not match anything i have now. Im still researching myself. Also, the cross idea came from scriture that says we must pick up our cross daily. No one can answer this for you. Its between you and God. Have a good one.

Yes it is a sin bc in Leviticus 19:28 it says that "and you must not make cuts in YOUR flesh for a deceased soul, and YOU must not put a tattoo marking upon yourselves. I am Jehovah"

Yes it's a sin in God eyes to have a tattoo and in the Bible it states treat your body as a temple other may say but we have free will. I can tell you no sin is greater than another and if your wondering Yes I have a total of 8 tattoos. however all I can tell you if your looking to get a tattoo make sure it's something that you hold close to you let it have a meaning. because at the end of the day you have to live with the choice that you make it can be good or bad but it's your choice

I spent 20 years in the Navy. There are many reasons to get a tattoo, but obedience to The Lord wasn't one of them.

In many religions its a sin im not sure what you are but it's probably a sin but if really want a tattoo badly then get a small less revealing one

Not in my opinion I know a priest who's a Vietnam veteran and he has a tattoo of a cross on him and his unit from Vietnams logo on him. So no not in my opinion.

I have to agree with Nafta, it's all in the taste and style of the tattoo.

The Bible tells us at Leviticus 19:28 that we should not up marking on our body. I recently came across an article that touches on this subject and explains it beautifully. Check out this link:

Hope I helped!
