Will Having Tattoos Send Me To Hell? by Nobody: 10:52am On Jan 15, 2013
The bible says God is love but I keep wondering if that is entirely correct seeing as some verses condemned things like tattooing one's body. Also, I had gone through some topics about christian views on tattoos here on nairaland and some christians seem to be 100% sure & even comfortable with the idea that anyone who tattooed his or her body is a sinner and should be thrown in hell on the judgement day.

I have a few tattoos, does that mean I and others like me are already condemned and our prayers & worships are useless? If that's true, then, is there any need worshipping a God that will end up throwing us in hell for tattooing our bodies?

If God is going to throw us all in hell for some of these reasons, where is the love? If the good things we do wouldn't be remembered because of mere tattoos, then where is the love? Is God truly love?

I'd like to know your views. Thanks.

The problem we av in Christianity today is dt many of us Christians approach Christianity in a religious way but Christianity is nt in any way a religion.we r nt bound by any law of do's n don'ts or by any rules n regulations.no matter ao we view ds thns whether we understand it or nt,al these do's n don'ts wl definitely put us back in bondage from whc Christ has made us free.we av nt received d spirit of fear again un2 bondage.no.Christianity isnt about u keeping laws or rules.it's about following d leadin of d holy spirit.now don't misunderstand me,I'm nt sayin dt there's sin again or that we r free 2do anythn ,no.but d truth is dt if u r born again,d holy spirit wl lead u n gv u d understandn of wat is right n wrong,nt u tryin 2follow letters of laws.i wl neither say yes nor no that wearing trousers or any of those questns dt tend to bring confusion,whether they r right or wrong.infact they can b either,depending on ao u r convinced by d holy spirit.for example,there is absolutely nothn wrong if females that understand d word of God wear trousers,not wrong @all.but if another female blvs dt it's wrong,but she starts to wear it just cos she sees another person wearing it n nt cos she's convinced in her own heart by d holy spirit,it's vry wrong for her.for anything dt is done wtout faith is sin.

As much as I see tattoo as not decent . It's a matter of choice what decoration you put on your body .The bible is not against tattoo. God is not against tattoo. Do don't feel condemn by nothing.

Can you imagine what the world is turning into ?I can't believe that christians too,whom our lord Jesus warns to be wise as a serpents and be harmless like dove can fall too to the tricks of Satan by supporting things like this.
You will hear some call christian saying perming is not bad, nothing wrong with christian ladies that wear trouser, nothing wrong with tattoo. They don't want to listen to God but they want God to accept everything they do. They want What they feel to be right to be what the Bible says or agreed upon,you can never see them quote the verse of scripture to back their sentiment.

Let me ask all of you that did not see what is wrong in tattooing ones body this quetions. Why would someone wants to tattoo his or her body, To fascinate God or to fascinate man?
The Bible say "the friendship of the world is enmity of God.Whosoever therefore will be friend of world is the enemy of God (James4:4-5)"

If you say tattooing ones body is not a sin, does tattoo make ones look like sons and daughter of most high God?

Whereas, the Bible says in Leviticus 19:28 that "Ye shall not make any cutting in your flesh for the dead not print any marks upon you. Iam the Lord "

let us becareful of what we will post because many people are reading it. What we are posting here can save lives and it can ruin lives if the care is not taken.

I was just discussing this issue with my brother Rhemaplus yesterday and his expose was really enlightening..
While the law was about "dos" and "don'ts" christianity is more about principles..the problem is that christians of nowadays will rather go back to the law..one of our guiding principles should be 1corinth 10:31 Whether therefore all of y ou eat, or drink, or whatsoever all of you do, do all to the glory of God.
My brother ghetto, you said you already have the tatoos, in that case I'll advise you see how 2 remove it if is temporary as it obviously does not glorify God.
In the case of it being permanent there's nothing you can do about it..your life should be enough to preach your present state.
For those who wish to have tatoos soon, inasmuch as we want to exercise our freedom in Christ, let's be humble enough to ask how having a tatoo glorifies God..
If you are not concerned about the glory even your minutest actions bring to God, your spiritualmindedness is already shaky.
As I said earlier, this is not necessarily a "Right" and "Wrong" matter, or "sin" and "not-a-sin" matter..It's about christian principles.

Thanks guys for your inputs.

@Willzkid, my tattoos are permanent, so I guess there nothing I can do now!

@Ayomivic, you said it's a sin, does that mean it's unforgivable? If God in his infinite wisdom and mercy will not forgive me for ignorantly putting on tattoos but throw me in hell to suffer for eternity, then where is the love of God that Christianity preaches about?

My friend your problem is self. You care about pleasing yourself while God bows to your selfishness in the name of Love. You peop arr just messing up. If you repent genuinely God will forgive you but if it is this pranks you are playing here then you are not serious. Tattoo is not good for christian. Forget about all these agents of deceit here who are telling you that it is good. At the judgement throne you will stand alone and none of them will be there to defend you. Stop deceiving yourself.

@Ayomivic,if u want hundreds of bible verses 2back up my point,i wl surely gv u.d truth is dt if righteousness comes by d works of d law,then Christ is dead in vain.let me ask u,if d bible says we shld nt love d world,does dt mean we shld nt eat d food dt is made in d world or we shldnt wear cloths dt sinners of d world make?or mayb ur own cloth &food r made in heaven i don't knw.d Christ life is nt actually quoting d do's n don'ts of d law.read n understand vry well Romans chapter 10 &11.d righteousness of God,wat makes u a right man in d sight of God,is nt because u obey d letters of d law,but d spirit.our righteousnes is by faith nt by d law.now if u read my comment vry well,i didn't actually support d tattooing one's body.to me it's always highly irritating wen i c it on ppl,but i can neva condemn any1 dt use it.d holy spirit doesnt condemn ppl,he rather seeks to justify them.but one thn I'm sure is dt if u r really born again n u r following d leadn of d holy spirit,i dont thnk d spirit of God wl lead u in2 tattooing ur body.wat wl make a child of God 2print any image on his/body?it's cos they want 2bcom world class.they want 2match up wt d standard of d world.but actually,friendship wt d world is enmity wt God.wat i posted earlier is actually correct biblically, but i still strongly blv dt d holy spirit wl neva lead u in2 tattooing ur body
