The body isn't a temple, it is an amusement park. Plenty of thrills and chills and occasionally it makes you puke.

Anon 2:11 -- technically yes, because both have roots in pagan worship rituals, but many christians tend to interpret and justify that as it fits whether or not they want it done. I've seen vehement arguments on both sides of the issues. Now to me (but I am atheist) if the handbook is considered inerrant, and it says to not do anything pertaining to pagan practices, then that's what it means. But one, it's all mythology to me, anyway, and two, I have neither tattoos nor piercings for autistic sensory issues, and three, there are plenty of believers who see the bible as reflective of its time and culture more than as written in stone for the ages.
