To Tattoo or Not To Tattoo?

Over the last few months, I have contemplated getting another tattoo.  My first tattoo was my wife’s first initial on my ring finger.

I would like to get a cross and I have begun to wonder if this was the right thing to do.  See Michelle does not necessarily like tattoos.  At some point, I need to be rational enough to find out why.  However, for the moment, I am not.

I ran across this article today that does an amazing job of detailing a position of tattoos from a biblical perspective.  Travis Scott takes an amazing look at whether or not tattoos are for today’s church. With the rise of TV show’s like LA Ink.  I think pastors must be willing to deal with the hard task of exegeting Scripture for a culture that has no clue of what it really says.

Check it out and tell me what you think.

P.S.  Don’t try to use the Leviticus reference unless you are wiling to give up the medium well or medium rare steak at Logan’s.
