Answers About Tattoos





This video includes an interview with a former tattoo artist who shares his knowledge of the danger of tattoos. He states that he people applying the tattoos are not concerned with the health of your skin.

Ladies, particularly, have always enjoyed changes in their appearance. Hairstyles, makeup, jewelry and clothing can be changed. There are many things available that have no permanent effect on the skin.

For more reading on this subject, please see Roxy's article by the same name, The Truth About Tattoos, and Pearls Never Go Out of Style.

The skin is the biggest part of your immune system, and as such, should be protected and nourished and cared for. Once it has been punctured, your immune system is compromised, says the gentleman on the film.

Some readers who have seen this video have left comments that I am including on this post:


"Where I live, in Australia, tattoos are everywhere. Young men and women are falling for the fad, and when I see them I feel pity for them. Sportsmen have full sleeves of tattoos, and even everyday men have these and some have full leg tattoos. The most shocking for me though is young women who have sleeves, leg and back tattoos. How can women not understand the fickle nature of fashion? Which woman would ever choose to wear the same item of clothing everyday for a month, let alone the rest of your life??? I feel a sense of pity for the young who mark themselves forever with these things."


"Thank you for presenting this informative video. I have never seen any tattoos that made a person look better and it breaks my heart when I see young girls with tattoos all over them. Why tattoos and body piercings have become so popular is beyond my understanding. Recently I was reading an article about hair coloring and learned that people with tattoos can sometimes even develop an allergic reaction to hair coloring. I've encountered women who have had their cosmetics "tattooed on", such as eyeliner, lipliner and blush and I think this is regrettable because styles in makeup change, as well as our taste. I hope this well-produced video causes people to stop and think before getting tattooed or getting a body-piercing. "



Thank you so much for presenting this video! I am afraid I thought Lev. 19:28 was the reason to avoid tattoos. I know a pastor that stated there where no verse saying one could not be tattooed. His lightly given word opened the door for many in the church to get tattoos. Once they got one tattoo they continued to cover there body with tattoos. They want to reach the lost bikers and felt the bikers would identify with their tattoos and felt the message of their tattoos was their life story. What if they had heard the whole council of the Word of God? Would they have still gotten tattoos?
This message could apply to many activities. Thank you for posting it!

Hi Lori,
Where I live, in Australia, tattoos are everywhere. Young men and women are falling for the fad, and when I see them I feel pity for them. Sportsmen have full sleeves of tattoos, and even everyday men have these and some have full leg tattoos. The most shocking for me though is young women who have sleeves, leg and back tattoos. How can women not understand the fickle nature of fashion? Which woman would ever choose to wear the same item of clothing everyday for a month, let alone the rest of your life???

This is a great video to have watched. The man speaks well and uses the Bible for this topic.
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for posting that. Somebody once likened a beautiful woman getting a tattoo to a Ferrari with a bumper sticker on it.

Dear Lydia, I think you have tackled a subject that really needs to be presented. I always wonder when I see, especially women with them if they regret it. I have never seen one that I thought it made anyone look better. But we have seen such an influx of them that it almost seems un-natural. I have heard from a person I know that she gets a rush from getting one. It was only suppose to be one, and now she is covered, even many of them our scripture.
Thanks for adding a link to my post on tattoos! Speaking up and out is never easy, but seeing the other side of someone that has been there and done that and now regrets it is a powerful tool. Blessings, Roxy

I agree with that statement "I've never seen a person where a tattoo made them look better" I've never really understood the appeal, for women or men.

Oh tattoos on anyone makes me really sad. It is such a permanent mark on the
body. Not to mention all the health dangers. When I see a beautiful girl with
a lovely face then all these dark abstract designs down her arms and hands I just cringe. Oh that they would understand that they will one day be old and how
AWFUL that will look to the next generation. Also when I am being served in a restaurant or store and I am seeing these things on hands and arms it makes me feel that someone the person is not "clean". Love Kelly

No one had tattoos except former military men who had been to Japan and the Phillipinez, back in the 1940's. Nearly everyone's father had a tattoo, yet most children never saw them because their fathers didn't make any effort to show their tattoos. Generally, everyone, even the G.I.s knew the tattoos might have a bad influence or send a wrong message, back in that day. It was accept d among their buddies, but they,mthemselves, didn't think tattoos were appropriate in other social life, even the family. Tattoos were also considered ok for men, but never women. I never saw women with tattoos until after the year 2000. There may have been some before that, but it became more common in the 21st century. I doubt any 19th century woman ever would have sported a tattoo. They seemed content with Their skin.

Ladies, please watch ththis video. It includes all your concerns about your attitudes about tattoos and shows how it is not intended to condemn anyone. Please, listen to the video before sending comments. Some comments show that the reader didn't actually listen to the video.
