Is It OK for Christians to Have Tattoos?
Inking for the Lord!
“It’s a declaration of my faith that I can show to people every day and have them ask me why I have that – and it starts a conversation and helps me to be able to talk about God. I deal with a lot of inner-city young people trying to clean up their lives. So, we help them cover up tattoos they’re ashamed of. If you quit a gang and become a Christian, you can still be killed or not get a job because of that gang tattoo. So, we try to get them in here as quick as we can and cover those kind of tattoos up. A lot of times we help them pick a faith-based tattoo, but it doesn’t have to be. We want to change people’s lives for the better, not shove something down their throats.”
