Tattoos have never been a big deal to me. You can have them if you like, but I think I would be bored with it after a couple of years. Kind of like wearing the same piece of jewelry.
I had never heard of churches preaching against tattoos till I moved to the Midwest. I do understand the passage in the Old Testament concerning marking your body. But I believe, this refers to the practice of cutting and heathen markings.
I ran across a scripture the other day, it caused me to really think about the subject. I’d like to get your opinion.
Rev. 19:16 “And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
So is ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’ actually written on His thigh or just on His garment? Let me know what you think.

I agree that the Biblical context regarding marking the skin is a reference to pagan practices for the dead. Other OT Scriptures appear to bear this out. In reference to your Rev. 19:16 quote, “And on His robe and on His thigh…,” I understand it to mean the written name, “…, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS” is actually written on His thigh as well as on His robe. As for tattoos being an issue in the church body–as you observed, it varies.
