When people ask me why I got my tattoos I usually say something like: “Oh, I was suffering from a mild case of being 18″.
Which is true. And isn’t.
Yes, I was 18 when I got my tattoos, and I didn’t really care about the future or consequences. But, I didn’t grow out of appreciating them. In fact, there’s a certain tattoo that I’ve been wanting unwaveringly for about 4 years now.
This isn’t an original subject matter. It’s probably been debated since the beginning of body art. And I’ll just go ahead and say, I think it’s totally plausibly to have a God honoring, meaningful tattoo.
I also think there’s a way to have a tacky, crappy, poorly thought through tattoo.
What are your thoughts about Christians and tattoos? Do you already have a religious tattoo, or have one in mind?
P.S. The tattoo I want is “Not my will, but yours be done” on my forearm.
