    1,137 words
    It is quite popular these days to have a tattoo. It is not unusual even for people professing faith in Christ to have tattoos. Some Christians, however, have a problem with this. The issue came up recently at a Bible study my daughter attends, so I decided that a Fact Sheet on the subject was timely. Do the Scriptures prohibit tattoos for Christians? In a word, 'No. ' I realize that many fundamentalist and legalistic groups professing Christ will disagree with me on this (what else is new? ), bu...

    My Interest in Ink I can't recall why, but ever since I was fourteen I've been interested in tattoos. My curiosity began when I started adding tattoos to the cartoon characters I had drawn in my art book. Then I began drawing them on my skin in class and making new designs in my art books. I was fascinated by the fact that it was possible to draw permanent designs on the body, designs that would change the way you saw your body forever. I began researching tattoo history on the Internet for more...
  • Tattoo Marks

    The Filipino Art of Tattoo The history of tattooing in the Philippines goes back nearly as far as the history of the country itself. There are literally hundreds of ethnic groups in the Philippine island chain, each of which has their own language, tradition, and history. Much like Borneo and other parts of Micronesia and Polynesia, tattoos were applied by a sharpened bird bone or a kind of 'comb' made of sea shells. A hammer or mallet was used to strike these repeatedly and drive the natural in...
  • Word Tattoo
    1,066 words
    The polemic about tattoos was wondering why tattoos are a controversial point in our society! There are people against and people that really like tattoos, but who is right? Should I think it is a good or a bad thing? Maybe for the tattooists the art involves is worth the pain and sacrifice of being tattooed. For the religious, it is a sin to sacrifice one's body with so meaningless purpose. Now I don't think there are excuses to justify so drastic a way of art, but analyzing the points of view ...

  • Piercing And Tattoos
    933 words
    My final paper will consist of all the sources I found while doing my research on my subculture, which is on piercing and tattoos. Because there were so many websites that showed tattoo and piecing parlors, it was very hard for my to find sources online that went into detail about the methods of sterilization and the process of tattoos and piercing. Also, there were many books on tattoos and piercing, but it seemed like at the library most of the sources were out dated. Tattoos and piecing has c...

    The tattoo industry is an often type cast field, in many instances it is thought of as a delinquent activity carried out in remote and filthy cesspools of social deviancy by large hairy burly men who cant get a "real" job due to past felonious activity.

  • Religious Tattooing Among Young Evangelical Christians
    1,011 words
    Tattooing has been around much longer than most people think. Most people envision natives, with tribal tattoos, or sleazy parlors on the wrong side of the tracks filled with bikers and sailors, but that's not even close to where it started. Scientists found a man, "the ice man", said to be the oldest man ever found intact that dated to the prehistoric era, and he had tattoos. And there were also the Egyptians who were masterful tattooists. Usually only the upper class, priests and priestesses h...
