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?
