Question 24.

I have a question Father Christopher if you could answer as and when.. is having tattoos a sin? Thank you  

 

Answer to Question 24.

 

 Iím not going to answer you with a yes or no, but give you something to think about. If, as according to St. Paul the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit then we should take all precautions to preserve our bodies as God has created them. Why would anyone want to permanently write graffiti on the temple of God?
