Tattoos, Sin Or Not?

 Tattoos are a sin. If you were a real Christian you wouldn’t get any. God doesn’t approve of them, in the bible it says not to get them. When we die, do you really want to go to heaven and stand before your God covered in such foolishness? I would be ashamed of myself. When someone gets a tattoo that is pertaining to God, Jesus, The Bible, Christianity or anything of that sort I see it as a contradiction. Just because you get a tattoo that states a Bible verse doesn’t mean you’re safe from the sin. PAUSE. That was my old mind set. But after a while I started to think and realize that in the bible it also says not to get and body piercings but i have my ears pierced and i have since i was a baby. Yeah you can take the piercing off in a matter of seconds but you still got it didn’t you? So what makes that less of a sin than getting a tattoo? Sins don’t have different degrees. A sin is a sin. No if, ands, or buts. Not saying that I’m okay with sinning or anything, but now I’m just not as stand offish and close  minded as i was before. I can actually appreciate the beauty and art in some of them. The art of tattooing can be a very beautiful thing. I’ve been thinking and I really, really, really want one! I am 16 and I don’t care. If it wasn’t for my religion I would have probably gotten one or about to get one. But since I want to do the right thing, but don’t really know what the right thing to do is right now, I’m not going to do it..for now. Until I feel 100% sure that It is what I want. We are all sins and we all sin. Each and everyday we sin. So me getting a tattoo wouldnt make a difference, now would it? I dont know.
