Yes, the bible does say that we shouldn't put marks on our bodies, but it also says in Leviticus 19 that we shouldnt wear clothes that are made from two different fibers, that men are to never trim their beards, you arent supposed to trim your sideburns, you cant eat meat that isnt cooked well done, you cant plant more than one type of seed in your field, and several other things. If all these are still applicable today, than we are all constantly in sin. According to God no sin is worse than the other, its us humans who have said that one sin is worse than the other. Also the Bible says that we are not judge one another.
Oh jeepers ... MORE religiosity ? !
ATS is getting on my nerves for this reason
I'm not a fan of tattoos
To my mind, they look cheap, stupid and dirty
I wouldn't associate with or employ someone with tattoos, because it's my opinion they're wearing their mental/intellectual/emotional problems on the outside
In addition, I have a low opinion of those who follow trends, such as those for tattoos and piercings, because I regard those who follow trends as being of low intelligence
Tattoos on older people look additionally ugly and distasteful
Those who have tattoos clearly believe they will never grow old, which again is evidence of their low intelligence
Most people I've met with tattoos wish they'd been smarter than to get them and dream of having them removed
So for me, the tattoo issue has no connection with religion or spirituality

I think tattoos are (or should be) a personal reflection of self. Some consider it art ... I'm not quite to that degree, but I do think that if you have ink than it should *mean* something to you or *reflect* something about you or tell a story about your life, whatever that may be. But that's mostly personal opinion. To each his/her own.
In other words, if one follows exactly what the Bible says, we'd all be living in sin daily.
