Tattoos

In a great sense it has nothing to do with religion...and in a sense it does.  You, and your buds still have to make the argument against tattoos that I have told all y'all exists...and not one of you has made....but don't get to heady with it if you finally find it...because I already have the response....

St. Aug. St John Our Lady probably would not care over much (they would know the real argument against, but understand the mitigating cultural usage that is now prevailing) ...Pio is another case as the guy was a bit of a kook.


So your post above makes no sense...the way it really reads is

"People are nuts because they do not agree with my personal opinion why Caholics (in a traditional sense...LOL) would want a tattoo these days?"


"These days"...there you have the answer

Tattoos are simply a way of saying "hey!  look at me!  I spent money for someone to draw a picture on my body!"

If it's perverted, it's sinful.
If it's religious, then you are no different than a Pharisee praying in a public place so that he can be praised for his pretend piety.
If it's to dedicate a deceased relative or friend, you're seeking pity and sympathy.
If it's anything else, it will not retain any interest (the new car effect).

If you want a tattoo, get one that isn't permanent.

And if no one but you can see it, then your theory doesn't apply.

If you're going to get a tattoo, don't be a mouse - get the real thing, and quit being a poser.

If no one can see the tattoo, then you wasted your money.

Following your logic, how is a temporary tattoo any different?

If you say so.

Because if you really have to follow a fad, at least you won't regret it twenty years later.

So you're saying that getting a tattoo isn't necessarily sinful?

Temporary tattoos do not involve scarring and mutilating the body and have a lesser folly factor than permanent tattooing.

I thought your main argument was vanity.
