Can I Get a Tattoo?

By | October 9, 2019


So people always ask me, “Father Mike what does your what does your ring say?” It’s not um it’s not uh Just say something You’re embarassing me this is I’m in recor– I’m recording this so just say something Just kidding It reads: um It reads, “You are a priest forever” in Hebrew and it comes from the book of Psalms and the Letter to the Hebrews quotes it of the Psalms “You are a priest forever.” I actually had it checked out, like that making sure like “Did you order that online?” I was in Israel and actually there was a man who didn’t know what it was supposed to say, an Israeli man, and he said, “What does your ring say?” I showed it to him and he said, “Whoah! Oh! Wow! I like that. And he said, ‘You are an everlasting priest.'” And I like that translation even more than “you’re a priest forever” “You’re an everlasting priest” I was really taken since I am a priest I wanted that I thought maybe I should get a tattoo and then I thought, well, I want to be a priest forever I’m going to be a priest forever. Thanks be to the Lord, but uh, on a ring is probably better, probably better on a ring. Speaking of tattoos, let’s. Let’s talk about tattoos shall we? Hi! My name is Father Mike Schmitz This is Ascension Presents. We’re going to talk about tattoos, because people ask me all the time, “Father Mike, is it OK to get tattoos? is there anything sinful or evil about getting tattoos?” Well, great question, number one. In the book of Leviticus, chapter 19 it says, “Don’t get tattoos. Don’t mark your body, don’t cut up your body.” That’s good and that’s in the Bible, and what we have to do whenever we read the Bible is understand the context. What the Bible is talking about when it prohibits tattoos is it’s talking about a certain kind of marking on one’s body that gives oneself an identity typically in terms of tribal identity, or in terms of dedicating one’s body like for the dead or some kind of other like ritual sense, in that sense. The Jews were instructed in the book of Leviticus not to do that. You don’t have a tribal identity. Your identity is you’re a part of the people of God. You’re not marking your bodies for the dead because your identity is found in God who is the true and living God. So with that being said the prohibition in Leviticus 19 might say temporal, or cultural, or temporary, in the sense that if your tattoos mean that you’re consecrating yourself to something other than God then yeah, don’t do that. If your tattoos mean that you’re consecrating yourself for the dead or to the dead then yes don’t do that; but if they don’t mean that then there may not be I would say there isn’t a prohibition specifically or explicitly against any and all kind of tattoos. Now that being said there are some tattoos even if it’s not intrinsically evil … there are some tattoos that we would not as Christians be able to get based on a couple of things. Number one: um if they are of an evil thing right? So … to get an evil image um, so something that is satanic, something that would be um uhhh what’s the word? lewd would be lewd would be the right word, so crude, lewd or crude, don’t do that. Secondly, the where you get it is kind of important. Sometimes the “where” you get a tattoo is directly related to um some kind of like I’m trying to say something about uh a use or misuse of my sexuality; so that kind of tattoo would also probably be um don’t do that kind of thing. So the kind of tattoo, the where you get the kind of tattoo, the third thing would be the amount, the number of tattoos. Now what I mean by that is this … there are some people who just they have tattoos all over the place simply because they like tattoos, and on a certain element you’d say “OK, that’s whatever.” Another element if you’d care about the person you might ask the question, “Hey, what’s going on with all the tattoos?” Because a person could find themselves seeking tattoos out of a sense of maybe self loathing. No, of course I’m not saying that everyone who has a sleeve has that kind of thing, but it is a good question to ask. What am I saying when I mark up my body? That’s the big question as Catholics we’ll ask. What am I saying if I feel compelled to mark up my body? Now, a lot of times people will say, “Well I’m not saying anything. I just … I’m trying to be unique, and I’m trying to be distinctive,” or it is, “I like this image or I like this saying. The thing I have tattooed on me is a cross, or the thing I have tattooed on me is a verse from Scripture.” Like that’s … again, like, I’m not saying that’s wrong. I’m just saying it is a great question to ask is, “What am I seeking?” or “What am I trying to say with these tattoos?” Just like you’d say … I would say the same thing when it comes to like, “Hey, you’re wearing that t-shirt. Like what are you saying by wearing that t-shirt?” Nothing necessarily wrong with the certain kind of dress or certain kind of haircut. It’s just the question is, what are you saying? What are you revealing about yourself? Particularly, what are you revealing as your deepest identity? Should I get a tattoo? That’s the question. “Should I get a tattoo?” I remember someone asking. They wrote an article about this and they said, “You know, with our changing culture and our changing tastes there are some important questions to ask before you get a tattoo, because that’s kind of a permanent thing. And he asked the question, he said, “OK, so you’re talking to a random 23-year-old or 20-year-old who wants to go out and get a tattoo,” and said, “OK, rewind your life by 10 years and ask yourself the question, 10 years ago what would be the one tattoo that you would get 10 years ago? Now, 10 years later would you still want that tattoo on your body permanently?” Now, if someone says “Yeah, absolutely, I would!” OK, great, wonderful no problem, but it’s a good question to ask. Now, the way I like to do it is this: um, if you have an image you want, like I want this image on a tattoo … I think it would be super cool. Great, no problem. Here is what you should do, just … you don’t have to, just part of my advice: get that exact image the actual size get it silk screened on a t-shirt or actually on 7 t-shirts and wear that as an undershirt every single day, and if after a year of wearing that same image every single day you want that tattooed on your body then that is a good sign that that’s gonna be an image that lasts if after a year you’re like, ” Oh man, I am bored of this image,” then, now you know, you just dodged a bullet and you don’t have that permanently imprinted on your body. Now, I have always wanted to get tattoos. I, as of yet, have zero and why? Because I know that I’m fickle. I want a cross, but what kind of cross? I don’t know. I want a Scripture verse. What kind of Scripture verse? I want something that identifies me as as a soldier of Jesus. You know what will identify me as a solider, as a son of God, as a Christian ? Not a tattoo, but the way I live. The t-shirt we put on, the cross we put on around our neck, or even the tattoo we imprint on our skin, it might just be … it might just be too easy of an identifier … even the ring we slip on our finger might be too easy of an identifier. The harder thing that identifies me as a son of God or as a priest of God or as a follower of Jesus is the way I live. That’s hard to do and it takes a daily decision. Tattoos are a one time decision. I want to live my life like a Christian every single day. I want to live my life as a priest every single day. That’s why when I have this on my ring I take it off at night and I put it on in the morning saying, “Today, once again, I want to live as a priest today and forever.” My guess is whatever you would get tattooed on your body, that’s more a thing that you want to live than you just want to wear; but from all here at Ascension Presents My name is Father Mike Schmitz … God bless

    this is a great video but i am compelled to ask why do you always have to be “saying” something with a certain haircut, t-shirt, tattoo, or piercing?? humans aren’t necessarily trying to express themselves 24/7. an example, i like star wars, i have star wars t-shirt’s and wear them because i like star wars. that’s as far as it goes. it has nothing to do with me trying to express myself or let others know something about me.

    I have one tattoo…on my lower back. She's an angel, pregnant and smelling a flower. I got it because it was original art and it means something to me…it reminds me of this story :

    " Revelation 12
    The Woman Giving Birth and the Dragon

    12 And then a great wonder appeared in heaven: There was a woman who was clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet. She had a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out with pain because she was about to give birth.

    3 Then another wonder appeared in heaven: There was a giant red dragon there. The dragon had seven heads with a crown on each head. It also had ten horns. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and threw them down to the earth. It stood in front of the woman who was ready to give birth to the baby. It wanted to eat the woman’s baby as soon as it was born.

    5 The woman gave birth to a son, who would rule all the nations with an iron rod. And her child was taken up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman ran away into the desert to a place that God had prepared for her. There she would be taken care of for 1260 days.

    7 Then there was a war in heaven. Michael[a] and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, 8 but they were not strong enough. The dragon and its angels lost their place in heaven. 9 It was thrown down out of heaven. (This giant dragon is that old snake, the one called the devil or Satan, who leads the whole world into the wrong way.) The dragon and its angels were thrown to the earth.

    10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say, “The victory and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah have now come. These things have come, because the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown out. He is the one who accused them day and night before our God. 11 They defeated him by the blood sacrifice of the Lamb and by the message of God that they told people. They did not love their lives too much. They were not afraid of death. 12 So rejoice, you heavens and all who live there! But it will be terrible for the earth and sea, because the devil has gone down to you. He is filled with anger. He knows he doesn’t have much time.”

    13 The dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth. So he chased the woman who had given birth to the child. 14 But the woman was given the two wings of a great eagle. Then she could fly to the place that was prepared for her in the desert. There she would be taken care of for three and a half years. There she would be away from the dragon.[b] 15 Then the dragon poured water out of its mouth like a river. It poured the water toward the woman so that the flood would carry her away. 16 But the earth helped the woman. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that came from the mouth of the dragon. 17 Then the dragon was very angry with the woman. It went away to make war against all her other children. Her children are those who obey God’s commands and have the truth that Jesus taught.

    18 The dragon stood on the seashore.

    Father, You make me think about days when I debate weather or not I should wear a crucifix or my Rosary. Sometimes I feel like I want to be identified as a Catholic because I am proud of it but sometimes feel like people immediately shut or have misconceptions and anything you say it think is labeled and dismissed. It is hard…but then like you said "the one thing that identifies me as a Christian should be the way I live". I hope people can see through that. More importantly, That I can let Jesus light shine through me.

    Biblically know you're not supposed to get any marks put on your body and if you read Leviticus you know that course the Catholic Church makes rules as they go along that's why they teach a false Gospel of Salvation to the sacraments they try to hold tradition on par with the inspired word of God the priest thinks that they can forgive your sins when only God can do this and they are not a monotheistic religion there polytheistic they just change the names of the false gods and tact Saints on to him I can't believe that people nowadays with the Advent of the internet are still retarded enough to follow a church that teaches this type of luciferian Doctrine.

    There is no mortal man that can say he wants to be a priest forever that title belongs only to Christ Jesus, He is our Everlasting Priest, and "The LORD our Righteousness"
    We all have a Priestly calling Christ Jesus being our High Priest forever.
    🕇📖
    1st Peter 2:5 – you also as Lively stones are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
    📖🌿
    1st Peter 2:9 – but you are a chosen generation, royal priesthood, an holy nation, A peculiar people_ for that you should show forth the Praises of Him who has called you out of Darkness Into His Marvelous Light.
    🌿We are God's Own
    people.🌿

    🌿
    Jesus said it is not what is on the outside that defiles a man, but what's in the inside _ for out of the heart of man comes all the issues of life, and all the sins – adultery, inordinate affection, fornication, and so on and so forth.
    but why would you even second thought putting graffiti on the temple in which the Holy Spirit lives in? because your body God tells us is a temple in which the Holy Spirit lives in, therefore it is holy and we are His Saints on earth.❣🌿

    Religions are authoritarian hierarchies designed to dominate your free will. They’re power structures that aim to convince you to give away your power for the benefit of those who enjoy dominating people. When you subscribe to a religion, you enroll in a mindless minion training program. Religions don’t market themselves as such, but this is essentially how they operate.

    Religions are very effective at turning human beings into sheep. They’re among the most powerful instruments of social conditioning. They operate by eroding your trust in your own intellect, gradually convincing you to put your trust into some external entity, such as a deity, prominent figure, or great book. Of course these instruments are usually controlled by those who administrate the minion training program, but they don’t have to be. Simply by convincing you to give your power away to something outside yourself, religion will condition you to be weaker, more docile, and easier to control. Religions actively promote this weakening process as if it were beneficial, commonly branding it with the word faith. What they’re actually promoting is submission.

    Religions strive to fill your head with so much nonsense that your only recourse is to bow your head in submission, often quite literally. Get used to spending a lot of time on your knees because acts of submission such as bowing and kneeling are frequently incorporated into religious practice. Canine obedience training uses similar tactics. Now say, “Yes, Master.”

    Have you ever wondered why religious teachings are invariably mysterious, confusing, and internally incongruent? This is no accident by the way — it’s quite intentional.

    By putting forth confusing and internally conflicting information, your logical mind (i.e. your neocortex) is overwhelmed. You try in vain to integrate such contradictory beliefs, but it can’t be done. The net effect is that your logical mind disengages because it can’t find a pattern of core truth beneath all the nonsense, so without the help of your neocortex, you devolve to a more primitive (i.e. limbic) mode of thinking. You’re taught that this faith-based approach is a more spiritual and conscious way to live, but in reality it’s precisely the opposite. Getting you to distrust your own cerebral cortex actually makes you dumber and easier to manipulate and control. Karl Marx was right when he said, “Religion is the opiate of the people.”

    For example, the Old Testament and the New Testament in the Bible frequently contradict each other with various rules of conduct, yet both are quoted during mass. Church leaders also behave in direct violation of the Church’s teachings, such as by covering up criminal and immoral activities by their own priests. Those who try to mentally process such glaring contradictions as coherent truth invariably suffer for it. A highly conscious person would reject membership in such an organization as patently ridiculous. So-called divine mysteries are engineered to be incomprehensible. You aren’t meant to ever make sense of them since that would defeat the whole purpose. When you finally wake up and realize it’s all B.S., you’ve taken the first step towards freedom from this oppressive system.

    The truth is that so-called religious authorities don’t know any more about spirituality than you do. However, they know how to manipulate your fear and uncertainty for their own benefit. How nice of you to let them.

    Although the most popular religions are very old, L. Ron Hubbard proved the process can be replicated from scratch in modern times. As long as there are large numbers of people who fear the responsibility of their own power, religions will continue to dominate the landscape of human development.

    If you want to talk to God, then communicate directly instead of using third-party intermediaries. Surely God has no need of an interpreter. Don’t fall into the trap of becoming a mindless minion. It’s a mistake to think that turning off your neocortex and practicing mindless “faith” will bring you closer to God. In truth it will only bring you closer to dog.

    I got this tat on my leg of the reaper, I got it when I was 23 at a friends house while we where drinking, his buddy was there who does tattooing for a livin.. I was goin threw a break up at the time in kind of a bad state.. but shortly after I was like why the f did I get this.. needles to say is there anything I could do to bless it? It’s funny cs I went to catholic school till I was in 6th grade and I still remember being like I don’t belong here when I went to the public school. It was so detrimental to me making that transition from catholic school to public school, just remember feeling like the kids are disgusting! But I ended up saying I’m not goin threw school being that dude who gets beat up and bullied so one day I was like I’m gonna fight the toughest kid and from 6th grade on no one messed with me! It’s just weird cs I think it lead me down the wrong paths. I even use to take my bike to church every Sunday as a kid if my parents didn’t go.. sorry for the rant but I wish I never got this tattoo, I can’t afford to have it removed at the time but would like too do something cs I don’t know if it’s brought me bad luck or what have you! All I know is I want it gone!

    That's absolutely true.

    Pope Francis said that it's not bad to tatoo, the image on your skin is the problem, because is forever.

    The verse in the Bible that most Christians make reference to is Leviticus 19:28, which says,”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.” People can do what ever they want it is their body but God may think other wise. Tattoos were connected to witchcraft. Just know this God loves you no matter what.

    The Bible says no tattoos and no tattoos means no tattoos. It is not ok to change the word of the Lord to your own convince. In Galatians 1:7 it says not to prevert the gospel meaning don't change it!
