I would never date a woman with a tattoo and that’s my freedom as a person and a Christian. However, I have friends that have some and it has absolutely nothing to do with God, Jesus, your importance or your salvation, period. I am free to date and marry who I wish. I am not particularly attracted to body-art but that’s me. And, that is just fine, no issues with it and God has no issues with me NOT dating tats….. no biggie
In the navy I saw lots of tattoos on male and females. It was quite strange at age 19 years old to see such wild places tatts were put on different people to make them feel special or accepted.
I didn’t have the desire to be that special. I was special to God and that’s all I cared about. I would ask these questions before committing to a tattoo: What are my motives for wanting a tattoo? Am I seeking to glorify God or draw attention to myself? Will my tattoo be a source of contention for my loved ones? Will getting a tattoo cause me to disobey my parents or employer? Will my tattoo cause someone who is weak in the faith to do something God wouldn’t be cool with?
