My son has several tatoos nothing horrible just a full "sleeve on one arm. He was looking for a job and was hired by a painter, thats his trade, when they arrived at the workplace the owner of the house told his boss he had to go because he was a Christian and would not tolerate tattos. Now thats not the kind of impression I wanted my son to get about christians. I was very upset! My son in true fashion said.... that guy is a true example of why so many don't attend church. Sad Sad Sad.

That is just wrong! He should never have judged your son on his tattoo's but his ability to do the job in hand. I know some people are offended to see tattoo's on another persons body, why though, I don't understand. Having a tattoo doesn't affect how a person perform his/her duties in a work place. Not being in any kind of religion myself, I can't really comment of Christian policies but it is my understanding from a non-religious view that god is open to all.

i think christianity or being a christian has nothing to do with tattoos. as long as you does not hurt anybody, you are hardworking and patient. what's with tatoos anyway?it is just a body art... hmmm good day and goodluck...

I'm not sure that tattoos are specifically prohibited by the Bible or by Christian principles. I am far more entranced, however, with your sensational avatar. My favorite!
