I believe that you can have tattoos and be forgiven, seeing as I have a back tattoo and have had a near death experience a number of years after getting the tattoo. I’m not going to go into what happened during the near death experience, but I will say that it happened over ten years ago and I remember it as clearly as if it happened yesterday. And from that experience, I know that God’s love is the purest and most beautiful love one can ever know and feel. I know that I am a sinner, as we are ALL born into sin. I have repented to my Lord Jesus and His Awesome Father numerous times. God knows my heart and I have given my life to Jesus for His Judgment.

But did you know that Rolling Stone magazine quoted famous tattoo artist Paul Booth as saying that while he is tattooing people, “he allows his clients’ demons to help guide the needle”?
William M. Sudduth Sr. is the president of Righteous Acts Ministries (ramministry.org) and author of What’s Behind the Ink?, a book about the spiritual aspects of tattooing, piercing and other fads.
He spent nearly two years researching the origins and history of tattoos and piercing — of Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, Europeans, Mid-Easterners, Asians and Africans. He discovered that all primitive pagan cultures throughout history and on every continent subscribed to some form of body…
