Tattoo regret becomes the latest trend

A drunken night out in Sydney's Kings Cross left Rachel Vance with a tattoo on her arm - two tiny stars and a spade. The experience cost her $100 and she regretted it instantly.

Louise Smith got five tattoos at different stages throughout her twenties. One was a butterfly, another commemorated a friend's death and the rest just seemed like a good idea at the time. Until now.

Both women are part of an emerging trend where people are paying upwards of $100 a pop per session of laser treatment to remove tattoos. Oh, and apparently it hurts. ...

Shannon, of course there are individual circumstances, and a person's behavior and likes will change before and after becoming a Christian.

But, again being a walking billboard can cause difficulty. Let's say a person (and I bet there's more than one out there!) who has the number "666" tatooed on his forehead? Now, before they're a Christian he will get a lot of conversation, and lets one or more of these become a Christian afterward? Well, I guess he will still get a lot of attention and they can explain something about the The Roman Road, etc., they the great number of people they will attract would be other Christians trying to point out about ...Treading the Roman Road, which they have already started up.

I would think one would want to start a conversation about Christianity in some other way, but if they are those circumstances where they can't afford to get tattoos removed, like the aforementioned one, then they could put it to good use.

But I have to point out:

Leviticus 19
28“‘You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you. I am Yahweh.

I don't think that's judging as that's really my first reaction to those extremes you mention. I think its what we do next that determines whether we are being judgmental. If we proceed to act like we are better than them and somehow more holy then I think that is judgmental. Our next action should be to be in earnest prayer for their soul! Imagine the afterlife they are headed to! That alone should move us to prayer for them. They are obviously miserable and are looking for happiness inwhatever they can find. They are trying to fill a hole in their heart that only Christ can fill. It becomes judgemental when we say that God doesn't love them because of their tattoos or whatever. Remember that man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart.
I'm not saying we endorse ink but i am saying that God is looking on the heart.
And aren't we glad for that!

Hot Rod, I was thinking about your post and should mention that my post wasn't judgemental but I shouldn't have stopped where I did.
I couldn't care less what anyone looks like but where I was going with it is that it seems to me that those who go to the extremes with the piercings, spike implants, teeth shaving, lobe stretching, etc, don't seem to feel like they plan on living long. I just can't imagine anyone doing what they do otherwise. The first thought that comes into my mind when I see those extremes is that the person is lost, being controlled by a demon; because their appearance is that shocking. If that's judging, then I guess I'll have to work on that.

I brought An unsaved friend of mine to church with me this past week and she has a few tattoos. She felt so nervous the whole time she was there because someone told her that religious people don't like tattoos. I am trying to convey to her that we aren't judging her because of her ink. I think as Christians we should be careful not to act judgemental toward people who have ink because I think it has a negative effect on our witness toward them. Now before you get crazy, I'm not saying we should embrace it and promote it, but I am saying we shouldn't judge them based only on their ink. You can't judge a book by bits cover

The way I see it, Shannon will draw others who have tattoos to her and she can be a witness to them. Thank you Shannon for your post. God bless!

Shannon, thank you for your wonderful testimony, it is truly a blessing to read. I am sure people see more of your godly character than of your tattoos as you interact with them. God bless you .

Hello Jim, although I'd like to remove my tattoos I must admit, my budget wouldn't allow it at the moment. It's something I could pray about and maybe in time, God would bless me and I could get them removed. Until then, I'd much rather focus on my spiritual growth and church family. Jesus has washed me clean with His blood, my name was written in the book of life before the foundations of this world, He knew every single sin is commit and He still saved me. Tattoos and all. Maybe it doesn't make me more beautiful. But God does.

Shannon, I would say they were a candidate for tattoo removal. I don't how effective it might be, but it would show that they have made a change in their lifestyle. For other repairs to return to normalcy and not trying to have attention focused on oneself, but more upon God, I suppose a plastic surgeon would be the one to talk to.

I know I never considered tattoos, body piercings etc., makes a woman more attractive. It shows some good sense in having those personal billboards removed.

Whenever I see those who are covered in tatoos, I consider how ridiculous they will look as they age and gravity begins to take over. That cute little dolphin is going to look like a weird, mutated whale once things get bigger and start swinging around. I am speaking of people who have gone way overboard with the ink.
I also consider the regrets for those who have spikes, etc, surgically implanted, have their teeth shaved down to spikes, and those with the huge earlobe holes from wearing those round donut discs.

Thanks for sharing that testimony, Shannon.

There's at least six of us now vying for the position of "chief of sinners". I'm surprised there isn't more, but hey ho.

I would still say more than likely if you see someone with a tattoo they have loose morals and standards.

Not so many years ago, if you saw a woman had a tattoo, you might consider she was in "the world's oldest profession!" I'll have to say I've seen women who are public personalities start wearing long sleeve blouses to cover up their tattoos, after they get married. Apparently hubbies don't like their wives in public looking like something that escaped from the circus Anyway, I see there are several sermons listed on this idiotic practice --for women and also for men. I hope anyone planning to have tattoos listen to some of them before they uglify their bodies.
