        Tatoos and Piercings
 
I believe God creates all of us perfect for His purpose. Is there any proof biblically speaking, of piercings and tatoos being against God's will?

      Leviticus 19:28   
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

In the NIV its translated bit more in line with the answer to the question "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tatoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord."

      Genesis 24:30   
And it came to pass, when he saw the earring and bracelets upon his sister's hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me; that he came unto the man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.

The NIV reads ring in her nose. It seems to suggest piercing was acceptable.

      1 Corinthians 6:19   
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?


??? Not sure if that applies, up to you and God I suppose. But if your body is His temple we should treat it as so. I would say certain tattoos are OK. My friend has a very cool one of the Alpha and the Omega.
