Tattoos origin began in paganism being associated with their commitment to practices and ceremonies. There is a certain darkness to a lot of this practice with a lot of reference to death. The Bible see's it as sin on the skin. Ephesians 5:11 1 Corinthians 6:19 What you do with your body matters to Jesus Christ but Leviticus 19:2 has the answer 'Be Holy'.
Great Sermon! A very well handled sermon on this hot topic for today, I agree with all that you said. I had even seen a Christian tattoo verse of scripture on his arm. So sad at times that some Christians go along with the world to imitate it. Also body piercings is another big and popular issue as well. Thanks Ian for speaking out on this issue biblically. May you see much fruit for your labour .
