I must confess that I am not a big fan of tattoos. I have no profound theological or biblical reasons why people shouldn't get them, I just personally don't find them attractive. I also don't understand why people feel the need to get a permanent one etched into their bodies when one can get a temporary tattoo for that big night on the town. Indeed, a temporary one will allow for some variety. If you get bored with the crossed swords on your bulging bicep, you can change to a heart with mom printed in the middle.
In any case, here is an article from Sports Illustrated on "Fans and their Sports Tattoos." If nothing else, many of the pictures of tattooed sports fanatics on the website should get people to think twice before they get one, or at the very least, help them to reconsider what they get and perhaps "downsize" a little.
What are your thoughts on tattoos? All views are welcome.
