Making cuttings in our flesh and tattooing marks on us



The law says: “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you” (Leviticus 19:28 - NKJV).

Therefore, both the custom of making cuttings on one’s flesh for the dead, which is a custom that some peoples have, and the custom of tattooing one’s body, which is a custom that many like very much, are sins in the sight of God. We, as believers, are called to flee these vain customs, because our body is the temple of God and doesn’t belong to us for we were bought at a price.
