What the Bible says about tattoos

I wish people would take God seriously. His ideas are not off the wall. When He started all this earth, man, universe stuff he knew the scientific basis for His warnings.tattoos-691901__180
Tattooing damages your DNA. It could mean birth defects. Do you really want this?

Would You Consider?

Quick answer: Never.
Tatoos Damage Your Genes”
Long answer. Leviticus 19:28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD.

In addition, no cuttings and no balding. Leviticus 21:5 They shall not make any bald place on their heads, nor shall they shave the edges of their beards nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

If you want to make a pile of money, open up a tattoo removal parlor. In 10 years bunches of people are going to fall all over themselves to pay bigga-bucks to get your services.

Titanium dioxide, used in tattooing to transfer color, has been found to affect both genes and also a possible cancer-causing material. Gene damage can affect future pregnancies. See these links. TiO2 does not release from the body but is stored in the tissues.

  1. Your scripture quotes re tattoos and balding in the Old Testament bring to my mind a basic question re interpretation: “And is this meant to be Descriptive or Prescriptive?” (Regarding all time and place and cultures, or specific to that particular context?)

    • In my coming book I shred the whole notion of context as being meaningless and irrelevant. Since the word of God is eternal, there is no context possible, because context is time bound, that is time specific. The only context that can ever be applied is the one He is speaking to you in your immediate situation.
