Discuss your opinion
I said no sin. I could be wrong. Those who say sinful in my opinion are acting "puritanist protestant". I have been told that some crusaders had tattoos to ensure of a proper Christian burial.
Unless you get something that is, in itself, a sin tattooed on your body I don't see how it could be a sin.

That's pretty cool, I guess the modern equivelent would be getting "Call a priest, I'm Catholic" tattooed on your chest. :)

Awesome idea
In and of itself, I don't think it's a sin.  However, if the content of the tattoo is moral wrong, then it would be sinful.  It's kind of like asking if listening to music is a sin.  Depends on the music, don't it?
I've never known someone to contemplate and decide and get a tattoo 100% sober for the entire process, so...

A tattoo can be sinful for a few reasons:
* Getting something sinful, occulic, blasphemous, etc. as the tattoo
* Getting it where it may be a scandal to another (innocuous kanji tattooed right on the breast or somewhere else that would be a sin for another to glare at, etc.)
* Getting it against the wishes of one's parents, spouse, or other party who has every right to object and that objection be heeded
* Getting it specifically to offend the former, shock, cause scandal, etc. etc. etc.
* I'd personally still call it wrong if it's done KNOWING the above would occur, even if the person getting it insists up and down that they don't intend any of the above.
