Is It A Sin To Get A Tattoo?

Q. Simple question… is it sinful to get a Tattoo? My wife and I have had a debate about this and have reached an impasse, so we’d like your view.

A. In Leviticus 19:28 the Lord said, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.”

In Ephesians 2:10 the Lord called us His work of art. We’re the highest and best examples of His creative capability, made in His image. Putting a tattoo on yourself is like defacing a masterpiece, His masterpiece.
