My Opinion About Tattoos May Be Different Than Yours…

Everyone has their opinions about tattoos. If you have a tattoo and like it, then enjoy it. If you have a tattoo and do not like it anymore, it can be removed. Here are some encouraging scriptures about tattoos.

Although my question about tattoos is, “Do you think it glorifies God to have one?” You will have to decide that for yourself. On the one hand, God has given us free will to do what we want to do, but on the other hand, if we are Christians, we ought to do God’s will. Our bodies are not our own since Jesus Christ’s death bought our lives for a price on the cross.

I remember taking a shower and actually crying out loud because I knew that the tattoos were permanent. I would not suggest that you get any tattoos, but if you have them, either live with them or attempt to get them removed as I did. I do see some really nice and meaningful tattoos, and I actually really appreciate the artwork, skill it takes to put them on, plus the memorial messages and scriptures are wonderful. But for me, I had so many tattoos on my arms and legs, and chest that I am happy not to have them on anymore. It is up to you what God tells you to do or not to do. That is actually not my job to tell you what to do. I am simply sharing my story. (Read More Below) ~ Bill Greguska

 


Should Christians Get Tattoos?

 


Everyone Has An Opinion About Tattoos!

In my opinion, concerning tattoos for what it is worth since, when I was about 17 years old, I put on some homemade tattoos on my body with Indian ink and a needle and thread, thinking that I would be a beer-drinking, pot-smoking party animal until the day I died. God had another plan for my life. But when about 36 years old, when I was working for a ministry called Faith Indeed, building wheelchair ramps, my boss privately and respectfully asked me if I liked my tattoos. I told him, “NO,” but I could not afford to have them removed. He being a Christan, he graciously offered to pay to have them removed. It cost $400 per operation, plus medication, bandages, and paid time off of work. Over the next couple of years, I went through 13 operations using laser removal of my 20 homemade/covered-up professional tattoos. I was blessed to have a second chance and have my gaudy tattoos removed. It was painful, but it was well worth it!
There is a debate about the value of having tattoos. Some people like them, and other people do not. I hesitated when I first thought of adding the topic of tattoos on this website. My reason for that being it is such a polarizing issue. Having tattoos does not mean you are not a Christian or not a good person. Not having tattoos does not mean you are not a Christian or a good person. In a person’s heart, it makes them a Christian or not, Jesus Christ living in us through the Holy Spirit.
The purpose of this website is to encourage and inform you of things that will help you. I will share some thoughts for you to decide for yourself. (I believe tattoos are a questionable choice overall). This is primarily for young people who get them without thinking or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, yet I am not the one to judge. God gives us the freedom to do what we want. It boils down to what our motives are.

As I said, God gives us free will to do what we want, but at the same time, we can not choose our consequences for the freedoms we have. When I got my tattoos, I was living in a rebellious banner that I wanted to wear. I had many tattoos on both arms, my one hand, my big toes, my chest, my leg.

1 Corinthians 6:19  Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.
