RELIGIOUS TATTOOS

Before talking about Orthodox tattoos, we have to ask a question: should a religious person ink a tattoo on the body? I am not a great expert on this issue. However, I consider the Orthodox to be the one who lives according to the Holy Bible and the law of God, that is, s/he tries not to violate the sacred commandments.


In the Old Testament, there are several points where “inking of writings” is mentioned. All of them are rather ambiguous, and it’s difficult to apply them to the ordinary believer of our days, so you are the one to choose whether you ink a tattoo or not!

It should be noted that in almost all cultures and religions there were customs to ink various images of revered creatures and gods on skin. On the one hand, they denoted belonging of a person to a certain religion. On the other hand, religious tattoos were some kind of amulets. They were inked to protect people from evil and curses.


Speaking about the Orthodox tattoo, we can give three perfect examples. First of all, these are images of faces of the saints, for example, Jesus Christ and Archangel Michael. Nowadays, tattoos of an Orthodox cross and a pentagram are considered to be the most common phenomena.


Despite the fact that traditionally the cross is worn around the neck, a tattoo with such an image can often be seen on shoulder or arm (in the wrist area). Another kind of religious tattoos is prayer lyrics and quotations from the Holy Bible. Ribs, chest, arms and shoulders are the most popular places for such inscriptions.

I suggest studying the history more profoundly and understanding the pagan tattoos of the ancient Slavs. It’s really interesting!
