Does God Care if I Get a Tattoo?

Table of Contents

Do you often find yourself with friends or family asking you questions about your faith? How are you so sure that God exists? Or, how can you be sure that believing in God will bring you happiness?
If weג€™ve been spending time with people who donג€™t share our faith, it might feel like they have a lot of questions about God and our relationship with him. They may even look at us funny when we start talking about Him.
But other times we find ourselves in similar situations without anyone else around to ask the questions. Maybe itג€™s just an inner voice or feeling that asks these questions. But whatever their source, itג€™s only natural for us to wonder if Mother Nature is going to strike us down for questioning the existence of a greater being.

Does God Still Accept Someone With Tattoos?

Itג€™s a tricky question. God wants us to be perfect and holy, so in order for that to happen, we need to leave our past behind. When we get tattoos, it might seem like a way for us to express our imperfections or out-of-control behavior without the fear of being judged by others.
We might be able to explain away getting a tattoo as something done in a moment of weakness or with regret later. But you donג€™t have to worry because God still loves you no matter what. He understands why you would get one, and he doesn’t see the sin in what you did.

Will Tattoos Keep You Out of Heaven?

Some people might wonder, ג€_x009c_Does God care if I get a tattoo?ג€_x009d_ And I would ask them, ג€_x009c_Did God design the human body?ג€_x009d_ If we believe that He created us as individuals and made our bodies with specific purposes in mind, then He did design the human body.
In fact, tattoos have been practiced for thousands of years. They were used as a form of decoration by ancient cultures. Although there are some tattoos that can be seen as offensive or disrespectful to the Lord, there are many different types of tattoos that can be done in a respectful way.
There is nothing wrong with getting a tattoo if you believe it reflects your faith or beliefs about God and will not lead to eternal damnation in heaven.

Will You Go to Hell if You Get a Tattoo?

Everyone has their own way of looking at the world, but for many people, there is a set course of action that defines how they look at life. Some people believe in God and also believe in following His commands to the letter. But what about those who are religious without believing in a specific religion?
The answer to this question is found in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV): ג€_x009c_Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.ג€_x009d_
While this verse doesnג€™t say anything specifically about getting tattoos or piercings, it does say that we have been bought with a price ג€“ meaning we are not our own. We were given life by someone else and should therefore be treated accordingly. That being said, if one believes they have some special permission from God to get tattooed or pierced beyond these general guidelines then they should ask their pastor before doing so.

Do they remove your tattoos before when you die?

The most common question people ask is whether God cares if I get a tattoo. The answer is actually no! It’s true that the Bible teaches that tattoos are not permitted because they were used to mark prisoners of war in the days of ancient Israel. But according to the Bible, God doesn’t care if you get a tattoo–they’re just not allowed.
In fact, Isaiah 47:8 says, “These two things will come in one day-the loss of death and the shame of famine.” So, getting a tattoo can help us avoid death and hunger!
One way we can be sure about our relationship with God is by knowing that He loves us and wants what’s best for us. His love for us is so great that He sent his Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. That was a great gift!

I have been tattooing for over 15 years and have my studio in Brooklyn. While I'll tattoo just about anything on anyone, my specialty is religious tattoos.
I am originally from Williamsburg, a neighborhood in Brooklyn known for its large Jewish population. This has given me a lot of experience and understanding when it comes to tattoos and religion.
