Here it comes again...

Once again, the time has come around when everyone around me is getting tattoos. I can feel myself being sucked into this craziness!!!!!!!!  I know what I want and where and I can afford it, but I must fight against it because if i give in I will no longer be able to afford college.  Quoted directly from my mother:  If you come home with a tattoo, you can say goodbye to any college money that we have given you.  GULP.  So.... You see the reason and ONLY reason for my resistance.  Well, not the only reason...I am afraid that if I get a tattoo where I can see it, I will go crazy because I won't be able to take it off.  It's PERMANENT.  AAAAHHHHH.  Haha :)  So no worries, Mom. I'ma fightin' hard!!!

  2. Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD. -Leviticus 19:28

  3. If it is something you want bad enough, then you will be willing to wait for it. :)

    When getting a tattoo, you should know what you want, why you want it and where you want it. If your answers to any of these are unGodly, then there's an issue.

    In reference to Karen's comment, I believe that tattooing the names of other people (particularly the dead) is wrong. Beyond that . . . a person who is trying to live his or her life like Christ (which means listening to the will of God and being open to the convictions He places on our hearts) will know in his or her heart if the tattoo will take glory away from God or displease Him.

    Simply put - make sure your heart is right and open to the Lord's guidance, and then make a decision based on those truths. (That includes heeding the requests of your parents or being willing to accept the consequences.)

    Love you, Soupie.
