Leviticus 19:28; 1 Corinthians 6:19

Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you; I am the Lord….What? Know ye that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own (6:19)?

I felt led to raise some questions regarding tattoos because I see a very large segment of our population has at least one tattoo. With that being said, these questions come to mind, What are the real reasons for the tattoo? What are you advertising? Has it ever occurred that at some point it will be made public that the die used in making tattoos is harmful to the body? Has it ever occurred that the human body is beautifully and wonderfully made as God does not make junk? Do you believe that all humanity was created in the image and likeness of God and He breathed the breath of life into us and we became a living soul (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7). Being that God breathed His breath into man He lives inside of us through the Holy Spirit (Ghost) and God cannot and will not live in an unclean temple. Did you know that your body is the temple of God? (1 Corinthian 6:19). Did you know that you were bought with a price the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord? Therefore, our bodies are to glorify God because we belong to Him (1 Corinthians 6:20).
It is noteworthy for me to say that the above questions are designed to do the following (a) to raise awareness of ones actions, (b) for the person to weigh the consequences of his or her actions, and then (c) answer why am I doing this? Is it because it is popular or is it because Satan has clouded my judgment? Whatever the reason or the answer to the above questions, God loves you and so do I.
