    To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo

    The 'temple' defiled, or statement of faith? For many, tattoos celebrate spiritual growth, devotion

    WICHITA, Kan. -- Martha Arana wears her faith on her skin -- in permanent black, red and green ink. Arana, a 24-year-old Wichita State University social work student, recently had a cross wrapped with a vine and two roses tattooed on her right ankle. It was her first tattoo.

    Her 21-year-old sister, Maria Arana, got the same tattoo at the Elektrik Chair, a tattoo parlor in Wichita, Kan.

    "Whenever we've gone through stuff, the only thing that gets us through is our faith," said Martha Arana, a Catholic. "So we both decided to get something that symbolizes our faith." The two are among countless people of faith nationwide who have tattoos that reflect their spirituality and religious beliefs. But is a tattoo an appropriate way to display faith?

    Since the article mentioned the most often used scripture of Lev 19:28, I'll ask if those who might quote it here also believe the part in verse 19 that says: Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.
    I'm sure we've all worn a 50/50 blend T shirt before. As with all laws, I think we have to look at the intent... and at that time, I think it was b/c those tatoos and cuttings meant something... worshipping other gods.
    I don't think tatoos are wrong, but I don't particularly care for them either. I think the motive behind the tatoo is what matters.

    Perhaps you should post a contest for suggestions on the what and where of such a tattoo. :) LOL.

    I was trying to find one that I could see the slightest bit of a possibility of liking... but I couldn't. I just do not like tatoos.
