What does Jesus say about tattoos?
Today they're common everywhere from Maori communities in New Zealand to office parks in Ohio. But in the ancient Middle East, the writers of the Hebrew Bible forbade tattooing. Per Leviticus 19:28, “You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves.”
37 Jesus replied: “ 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. ' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.
Some Christians take issue with tattooing, upholding the Hebrew prohibition (see below). The Hebrew prohibition is based on interpreting Leviticus 19:28—"Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you"—so as to prohibit tattoos, and perhaps even makeup.
- Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
- John 14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. ...
- Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
Come to me, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30) Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

What is the first saying of Jesus?
When Jesus noticed John the Baptist's disciples coming after him, he turned around and let them catch up. (He'll let any of us catch up, won't he?)
