Will you go to hell for getting tattoos

Report as

In Biblical times, piercing and tattooing were signs of slavery. Hebrews were forbidden to sell themselves into slavery to a non-Hebrew, so piercing and tattooing were illegal. It'd be the equivalent of tattooing a Schwashtica (sp?) to your forehead during WWII. It was a cultural law to remind people they were once slaves in Egypt, but now they are only dlaves to YHWH. Getting a tattoo today does not mean the same thing, and Biblical commandments against it should be taken into cultural light. If your tattoo includes a Mastercard logo indicating your bank owns you, don't do it. If it's decoration, go for it if you really want it. Just keep in mind that removals are costly, ineffective, and more painful.

There is a commandment that states that you should not pierce or tattoo your body. It further continues to say that the body is the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in the body. The Church has also traditionally forbidden tattoos as a defacement of the body.

Context helps: Piercing and tatooing were signs of slavery. One should not endlave themselves to anyone but God.

Please don't espouse nonsense, especially when coupled with bad spelling/grammar. It's "accept," not "expect." And no where in the Bible does it say "accepting Jesus" is the method of salvation.

Depends on your personal beliefs. There are many cultures that tattoo themselves with no fear of Hell. Actually has religious significance for them. But do believe in the Christian belief that your body should be treated as a temple, meaning with respect. Like anything, too much of a good thing can turn bad.

No, but its better to wait until your at least 20, that way you can better make a decision that might affect the rest of your life. When your 20 you might decide that you don't like tattoos.

I think it depends on what kind of tattoo you get that would determine if it was defiling the body

As long as you are truly living for Christ, and have accepted Him as your Lord and savior, you will not go to Hell. The only unforgivable sin is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Otherwise, we all fall short of the glory of God, which is why it's important to keep our eyes on Jesus. For we are told that He is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through the Son.

The qualifications for entry into Paradise are listed in Matthew 25
