    I even suppose that some ppl could take the Scripture the other way: in order to be salt and light, using means to seek to be instrumental in blessing for others, might even involve in their minds using a Scripture tattoo that is a conversation-starter...

    (If this makes sense? ...not that you yourself would choose this means.)

    Do you see them pragmatically though as a potential witness means? (e.g., Bible verse)

    Yes and the more they have the more repulsive they look.

    No, I don't. The greatest witness is a life that emulates the life of Jesus and he never had a tattoo.

    Oh I agree about the witness of a life lived for Christ. Totally.

    (I just wondered if you totally discount any blessing via a Bible verse that is inked on skin as opposed to on paper...?)

    I don't like tattoos at all, but what does having one or not having one have to do with the witness of a person's life? Some of the Godliest people I know look like a billboard.

    Could it thus be made into an opportunity for witness, if conversation-stating Bible verse tattoos, etc., are received?

    PS: When you got them, it was nearly always men that had it done, right?

    Now apparently even more women do it in North America than men do.

    For some reason I think its okay in males..maybe it is my age, but I hate it on females. It makes them look too masculine. They should look pretty and feminine , not like rough males.

    Well, some female tattoos are kind of soft and flowery, anyway...

    At 18 these days, it's both young men and young women that do it as a passage to adulthood thing.

    My wife and I talked to a young lady with the whole of John 3.16 tattooed on her wrist area; it was her favorite Bible verse and mine also; and I'm sure other conversations have also arisen as a result of her willingness to do it.

    In that sense, I was glad to see she had had it done. (If this makes any sense?)

    @Lady Crosstalk So what do you think of Hisman's point about in #655 that tattoos are for men and not for women?

    PS: @Hisman I take it Mrs. Hisman hasn't ever considered any ink, although you have some...

    Now that is funny. An old lady with ink! What a vision of wonder that would be. :)
