Is It OK for Christians to Have Tattoos?
Inking for the Lord!
by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor
In the Old Testament’s third book of law, Leviticus 19:28 declares rather bluntly, "Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the Lord." So, how can Houston-area pastor Scott Hill justify his weekday job? He operates Anointed Ink, a tattoo shop in Huffman, Texas. Recently he also led a heavily inked team of Christian tattoo artists who competed in the second season of the Game Show Channel's blockbuster hit, the American Bible Challenge, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy.
