Re: Christian singles with tattoos


Should I suggest a "Singles" message board category to Deb?

Re: Christian singles with tattoos


hi there, im a christian about to get my first tattoo( & im not single) but i saw your post and thought this site may be helpful for you to understand why tattooing is not sinful and enlighten other christians who are being very unchristian by passing judgement on you whether you are tattoed or not.

Re: Christian singles with tattoos


I'm a single female with a tattoo(just one, but I am planning more). I know what you mean about being 'shunned' because of your new art. A year ago I NEVER would have gotten a tattoo, but the idea came up with a friend of mine and I decided I wanted one. Some of my friends are kindof apprehensive with me now [sign in to see URL]'s weird

I understand how you are feeling. I found a great girl that liked my tattoo not only that I have convinced her to think about getting one now she wants 3. There is someone out there for you. Just be patient. God always provides for HIS children.

Re: Christian singles with tattoos


it's "church" culture more than it is Christianity really...

church culture would tell you that you can't have tats. you can't play cards, or drink, or smoke, or drive faster than the speed limit, and when someone cuts you off in traffic because you drive too slow, you have to say "oh God bless you" because that's how church culture wants to be represented, and that's how they've decided that God wants to be represented.

God on the other hand, i believe would say 'hey, worship me with everything you do, and that includes your body...'

but it is sad, that so much Christianity gets mixed up with church culture, that in most people's minds they are the same thing.

Re: Christian singles with tattoos


Oh, that's a great way of putting it with the 'Church' culture. I'm sure the older or more conservative members of my church wouls shun me if they knew I had a tattoo (seeing as it's in my middle back, it's almost always covered) but I've began to notice that there are more active members proudly showing tattoos.

On my wednesday night services, the bass and guitar players on the worship team both have multiple tattoos. The guitar player has them all up and down his arms and his legs and he told me he wants to get covered in tattoos, except for his face, feet, and palms of his hands. I can't wait to see what the 'church culture will think of him then. And then there is a new youth-leader that has a rather large tribal-like cross design completely surrounding his calf.

I think it is our own choices as to how we worship God and show our devotion to him. If that means marking our skin, then why not? Jesus marked his skin for us, why can't we do it for Him?

Re: Christian singles with tattoos


I'm going to be officially single soon, but am honestly LOOKING FORWARD to being alone again! I have no reproductive aspirations and am one of those weird people who are at their most content alone with a good book and music of my choice blaring too loud.

I honestly believe that we place MUCH too great an importance on dating, finding a mate, and reproducing. Nothing against folks in the CTA who have chosen this path, but seriously - this seems to be the end-all focal point for most people, and I'm convinced that God can use introverted, reclusive geeks like me in different, equally valid ways from those who choose to cultivate families.

Keep in mind that there is no record of Jesus himself dating, marrying or raising a family.
