More than just the colors
Why do Christians get tattoos?
My late father-in-law would never get a tattoo because he always said the Bible forbid it. Both his sons have them, but he often remarked he wanted one but he would remind us that his mother always said it wasn’t biblical. He was a Protestant, in his Christian faith, so not sure if that made a difference. Curious if anyone has heard of that belief.
This is a great article for parents to share with their kids when they're considering getting a tattoo. Some of the most helpful parts for me were:
"In 2018, an article in the Journal of Applied Microbiology reported that 49% of the surveyed tattoo inks on the U.S. market were contaminated with microorganisms."
It was helpful to see the list of heavy metals tattoos can have, including mercury, aluminum, and nickel. One note: some are so allergic to nickel that they can't wear nickel earrings. For anyone whose ears react to nickel earrings, you probably don't want nickel in your skin.
"In one study, 56 inks purchased from 4 different supply companies were analyzed for metal concentrations. Some of the elements found in high doses were aluminum, barium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel, cobalt, copper, iron, and zinc. Of the 56 inks tested, chromium, nickel, and cobalt exceeded the safe allergy limit."
I have nothing nice to say about tattoos, so I'll say nothing at all. :)
My gut tell me to avoid tattoos. As a cynic, Ive always thought that the normalization of tattoos in the general public was suspect - how did it become cool - Not just for bikers and sailors? What energy is behind this fad? Who or what wants us to be accepting of painful permanent skin markings.
Gosh, As a parent, when the children were small i cautioned them to not use permanent markers on their skin because it is was toxic to absorb, hard to scrub off and looked terrible. So now, the idea of adults, willfully injecting permanent coloured ink under their skin — is thoroughly mystifying.
Also strangely, ideally, it has to be permanent ink, because use of non permanent tattoos is frowned upon. You’d think that a tattoo artist shop would want dissolving ink so that the person would return to get re-inked, but No, it goes against their marketing ethos to be a true tattoo - “you must be injected with a permanent mark’.
I have never like tattoos and would never get one. I always wondered about the ink being a possible toxin. Thanks for in depth info about this practice.
With what we know today about hydrogels and graphene oxides and the surreptitious spread of mRNA via plasmids, I'd suspect that there is more danger in tatoo ink than was previously known OR what Dr Tenpenny is exposing. We're even reading occasionally that the vax 'ingredients' are being found in analgesic medications at your dentist's office and your friendly doc doesn't have a clue what his pain numbing meds fully contain. Here's another reason to be glad I'm of the old school set when tats werent cool unless your were a biker type or borderline gang member. Saw a 50 Something man in one of my gyms lockerrooms and he apparently used to be heavily obese but has lost a lot of his pork. Unfortunately his skin now sags in big drooping rolls and its distressing to SEE.
To me tattoos are repulsive. An even better reason for not getting them comes from scripture:
Leviticus 19:28 (ESV)
You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the LORD.
I read years ago that the ink used for tattoos is the same ink used to paint vehicles. If true, why would anyone want to inject that paint onto their skin? I wonder if tattooed people have greater heavy metal toxicity than non-tattooed individuals.
Worked with a gal who told me this story. Someone she knew (female and pregnant), got a tattoo on her belly. My co-worker pointed out that the tattoo dragon would soon be Puff the Magic Dragon.
Don't get tattoos.
With your explanation dr Tenpenny, i have decided not to have my eyebrows redone with permanent make-up, it sounds so harmless. But is also a tatoo.
I have never seen a tattoo parlor that could pass the decontamination protocols of any surgical suite, and tattooing is clearly dermal surgery.
Why is a tattoo permanent? Not because the ink dyes the cell. Our skin cells die and regenerate with new cells that haven’t been dyed. It’s activation of the immune system that enables the permanency. The dye is injected “in the dermis layer of our skin, where the macrophages cells that live there hold onto your tattoo ink and pass it to future generations of cells like a microscopic family heirloom.” No thanks.
If you have something to say...start writing on Substack instead of all over your body...there's a chance we will actually read it.
I was watching Pastor Billy Crone - getalifemedia.com - and he addresses the ease of which people have accepted tattoos and piercing. He has offered free viewing of all his vids re: The Antichrist. If you are able I would highly recommend watching all of his links covering the history of Israel and the Jews which leads into today.
The next step is the chip in the hand - we're already there in some countries. 666 is the final step. Satan is working. God is giving him permission. Cling tight to God's word and don't waiver or stumble along the way. Stay strong in what He is teaching all of us.
