“You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you; I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:28 NKJV
It has become very popular in this generation for people to cut and to mark their skin with tattoos. The Scripture teaches us that it is something that God says not to do. If one studies this out, he or she will find out that both the cutting of marks in the flesh and the printing of tattoos on the body are heathen practices that are older than any of us alive today. It may be a popular thing to do, but we as God’s people need to refrain from such practices. The Believer’s body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, made for God to be glorified in, not to promote heathen practices or represent that which is demonic in nature. If you as a Christian have done it, and didn’t understand or know what you were doing, ask forgiveness, repent and then believe God to supernaturally deliver you from any curse associated with the act of cutting or tattooing yourself. His grace and mercy are yours. If you have not done it and you are considering it, leave it alone!
