Tattoo: What Starts With Satan Ends With Satan

Is it okay for a Christian who is filled with the Holy Spirit to get a tattoo?

What does the word “tattoo” mean and where did it originate from?

1 Then the LORD said to Moses, 2 “Speak to the whole congregation of Israel and tell them: Be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy…28 You must not make any cuts in your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD. -Leviticus 19:1-2, 28 BSB

Tattooing (cutting the skin) was a pagan practice that was done for demon (Baal) worship, see 1 Kings 18:25-28. Satan will use some type of tattooing mark that will have his name or number to be put on a person during the end times to show that the person has rejected the Lord Jesus Christ in favor of Satan through the Antichrist system.

16 And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of its name. -Revelation 13:16-17 BSB

Tattoo (Lev. 19:28) in Hebrew means: an incision, imprint, and mark (Strong’s #7085)

Mark (Rev. 13:16) in Greek means: a stamp, impress, engraving, sign, and an imprinted mark (Strong’s #5480).

The Lord wants you to be holy like He is holy. If tattooing originated from demonic practices, why would you, as a Christian, get one? Especially when the Antichrist will use it to differentiate between those who choose to reject the mark to worship Jesus from those who receive it to worship Satan?

Are you still tempted to get one?

  1. Totally agree with your points here. Every compromise draws us nearer to apostasy and, in these last days, we need to stand upright and true to God more than ever.
    Press on brother!

  2. Technically the term “tattoo” also means the timeframe before lights out (in berthing for sleeping), that we pause for nightly prayers on a ship. (from wikipedia: a signal sounded by drummers or trumpeters to instruct innkeepers near military garrisons to stop serving beer and for soldiers to return to their barracks ).

    I also have made the point that many pagan/other religious traditions were adopted into Christianity during the conquest of said areas, (think modern Germany, France, Ireland, etc). That and many practices were carried over, tolerated.

    Satanism? Not quite. I would struggle to think that converts and second gen believers were Satanists due to tattoos.

    The translation supplied is a stretch at best. It fits a narrative when needed. RFIDs could be this or one of those rice grain data storage things.

    (Aramaic to Latin/Greek? to German to several English versions, many which are hotly debated).

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

      “I also have made the point that many pagan/other religious traditions were adopted into Christianity during the conquest of said areas, (think modern Germany, France, Ireland, etc). That and many practices were carried over, tolerated.”

      If a church adopted pagan rituals or doctrines then that church and its members are not real Christians, but are false and deceived. A real and genuine Christian is one who walks according to the Scriptures and does not deviate from them.

      “Satanism? Not quite. I would struggle to think that converts and second gen believers were Satanists due to tattoos.”

      I never said that if a Christian receives a tattoo, he will be a Satan worshipper. What I said, and I proved it with God’s Word very easily, that tattooing and cutting one’s skin was connected with demon worship. If you claim to be a Christian (that’s what I would ask the person who claims to be one), why would you get something that originated from demons?

      In the passage of Leviticus 19:1-2, it says to be holy like God is to avoid the customary practices of the pagans, which included tattooing. Either we obey God’s Word, or we don’t. It’s that simple.

      Whatever the mark of the beast will be, we can conclude that it will be a visible mark on the skin, as the Greek word implies, being a number (666) or the name of the antichrist. To say otherwise is to ignore and reject God’s Word. Either the person shows to be a real Christian by obeying the Scriptures or proves to be a fake one by ignoring them.

      “(Aramaic to Latin/Greek? to German to several English versions, many which are hotly debated).”

      First of all, the New Testament was written down by Jesus’ Apostles in Greek. We have over 5500 manuscripts to prove that. You have it all backward. Second, the many Bible translations we have, have been translated from the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts and are accurate. There’s no debate on the subject of tattoos.

      Plus, in the Book of Acts Chapter 2, we have the Holy Spirit speaking in different languages through 120 saints to reach all those that came to Jerusalem to celebrate a special day from many different nations so that they could hear God’s Word in their native language.
