As Freud once said, “Sometimes a good cigar is only a cigar.” A lot of tattoos are, or used to be, only the remnant of an out of control night in Tijuana. A reminder of something you can’t remember.
It’s like the old peace sign from the ‘60s. a lot of Christians said it was an ancient Satanic emblem. I don’t know. I never wore it, or anything, because I disagreed with the sentiments it was being used to express.
In fact, I found them somewhat inspired by Satan, in any event.
But the point is, sin results from intent. If you are not intending anything pagan when you get the tattoo, then you are not honoring Sata, At least, this is my belief, and I hope the Lord agrees.
That being said, decorations should be able to be taken off when the mood passes. I can’t think of anything, including “Mama”, that I wish to put on my body and carry to the grave with me.
