Tattoos have been the sign of conformity for well over 20 years, as well as getting all of your body parts pierced.
I laugh whenever I see all these people walking around, looking exactly the same and thinking they are some kind of rebel, sporting their tattoos and piercings.
My 21yesr old daughter wants one. I’ve told her if she gets one, I’m not paying for college. If she has money for tattoos, I’m paying too much of her expenses.
I'm not a big fan of tattoos, but I could definitely see getting or even a few like this one.
What are we to make of this first sentence? She's a Christian speaker, who is not religious?? If she's a Christian, why does she want to instigate conflict with other Christians?
Several reasons come to mind. #1 The body being referred to as a temple with tattoos disfiguring (or trying to "improve"on Gods) handiwork. #2 If we accept sin being defined as going against the known will of God well . . Leviticus makes plain His Will.
I don’t know if it is “sinful” or not to get a tattoo. I do know that there seems to be this ongoing penchant in the church that complete assimilation into our culture is somehow a good thing. Yet, Christians are called to holiness. Holiness is what? Being separate from those who do not follow their Savior.
I will carefully add that I do not understand this desire to provoke anger over a relatively trivial life issue. Does this person secretly desire a tattoo and this is her way of insulating herself from possible future criticism?
It bothers me that there are those who seem to dedicate to much interest in trying to get the Christians to conform to this world. They justify it as being a way that reaches out by not seeming odd to unbelievers. IMO, this denies the work and power of the Holy Spirit and seems to satisfy their desire to get as close to sin as possible without sinning.
Not helpful if salt loses its saltiness.
“How many tats did Jesus or the Disciples get?”
She should also as how many mansions did Jesus or the Disciples get? She seriously looks like the Joker to me.
1. What’s a Joyce Meyer?
2. Why should we care?
3. Any “Christian” who does something just to offend other people hasn’t read Romans 12:18, has she?

My mom hates tattoos. I promised her I would never get one. End of discussion. When my last baby was born a few years ago, the nurse asked about tattoos or piercings. She was surprised when I said, “One hole in each earlobe. That’s it.”
One reason was that the Lord was always separating His people (the Israelites) from the pagans and their practices. He didn’t want them doing things the pagans did.
Joyce Meyer was speaking at one of her televised events many years ago, and I remember her saying that she sometimes got criticism for wearing too much big, sparkly costume jewelry. She took exception to that, and said something to the effect that if she couldn’t wear big, sparkly earrings, she would rather not be doing what she was doing (Christian ministry). That was a revealing thing to say.
“...some people might say that the above only applies to Ancient Israel and does not apply to Christians today because Christians are not under Old Testament Law.”
and they would be WRONG!
Matthew 17 (NIV)
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Tattoos are wrong, Joyce Meyer is a MORON. Is she getting a nipple ring too?
Have a tattoo? Get it removed and/or ask for forgiveness. Your sins will be forgiven.
Interesting! Why did she ask that question about tattoos?
RE: Have a tattoo? Get it removed and/or ask for forgiveness.
How does one get a tattoo removed and how much would it cost?
I have John 17:16 on my arm. Not the verse, the N(sword/cross with circle)W.
When visible, I get questions. I share the good news.
I also have the Celtic Trinity on the other arm.
They mean a lot to me. Simple yet bold.
I don’t know, really. Maybe it’s because a person with a little of piercings or tattoos is more likely to have been exposed to Hepatitis C.
Or maybe it’s for forensic purposes: if I ever disappeared, and an unidentified body turned up, they could check my Novant Health record to see if it matched.
That, I like.
No way to know; the Bible doesn’t address it.
No problem. Name it and claim it!.
