Everything about tattoos and body modifications in The Bible

Everything about tattoos and body modifications in The Bible

Ancestral, tribal, clannish, and fraternity tattoos and deep incisions to the bare skin have been practiced long before the gospel.

From the pre-Christian Germanic, Celtic, and northern Europeans, to the far reaching ancient tribes people of Africa, Central America, and the rainforest townships of South America. it is even recorded that Julius Caesar described tattoos in volume V of his ‘Gallic Wars’, dated 54BC.

Biblical scripture covers the sacred books of the Old Testament (based on the Hebrew Bible), and the New Testament (the teachings of Jesus Christ and collected works of various writers, of most are the Disciples of Christ).

The New Testament does not contain any references to the use of tattoos, tribal cuts to the skin, or body modifications that change the physical nature of a Christian’s body and physical appearance.

The Old Testament however does contain references to the cutting and tattooing of the skin and body to alter the appearance.

“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord”.    (Leviticus 19:28)

Old Testament law is seen by many Christians as too severe, “Show no pity: it shall be life for a life, eye for an eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot”. (Deuteronomy 19:21)


*Many Christians today do not consider themselves under the Old Testament law set forth for the Jews, but rather follow the teachings of the New Testament and Christ focused Scripture. But after all is said and done, it is written, there in black and white.
