it pretty much explains what the bible was talking about in terms of tattoo's and markings, and how when the whole passage is read it is describing religious ceremonies of a neighboring area that marked their dead and used their markings as religious marks to another god. thus it is falling under the heading of religous marks on your body...but not artwork. so yes, i realize what leviticus says, but it is talking about the neighboring area that used tats as religous ceremony..
also if you do think tats are sinful...
"However, only nine verses earlier in the same chapter (Leviticus 19:19) the people of Israel were also commanded to avoid mixing fibers in garments:
Nor shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you.
Therefore, if someone chose to consider a tattoo sinful, then they would have to toss all their cotton/polyester clothing too!"
