What is tattoo? A tattoo can be simply defined as the art of body ornament with the aid of needles and inks of various colours.
This art dates back to so many centuries before the birth of Christ; tattoo or body decoration in inks during that era was done by atheist and those who serve lesser gods. It was the practice then for this people to inscribe the names or images of their gods on their body. According to the laws of Jehovah, it is forbidden for the children of Israel to be decorated with one as they are God’s own chosen people. Leviticus 19:28.
In the modern era, tattoo is no longer worn for the same myopic reason for which it was done long before Jesus Christ, now the body art is being worn for various reasons and by believers and non-believers alike, some wear it as a rebellion, others to signify their independence, and some just do it to feel among and some as a reference material, denoting events and happenstance.
These body art has no place in our churches as the Bible categorically told us in Romans 12:1 “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, If our bodies are meant to be nourished and adorned as a living sacrifice and temple of the most high God, then defiling it with any form of body art even cross tattoo is totally unacceptable in Christendom and particularly in Celestial Church of Christ where we are expected to fully comply with the teachings of the Holy Bible.
For those Celestial Church women and men who wear it all over their bodies, note this that heaven and earth will pass away but every word that has come out of God will never be amended. Before you subject yourself to those needles and inks, put God’s will and command before your own desires for He cares for you.
