Wondering if any of you ever feel judged because of your tattoo's
So, I was wondering if any of you ever feel judged by the fact that you have tattoo's. Like it somehow makes you less of a Christian. Personally I don't... most of the time. There are some people in my family though that are very conservative and don't understand why I like them.
I have 5 tattoo's... one on my hand, top of my foot, upper arm, entire calf and one on the back of my neck. I also have 12 piercings (neck up)... ears, eye brow, nose and tongue. I did have my lip pierced but had to take it out for work and eventually just let it grow shut.
So I can see where it may seem a little out there, especially to people around me who won't even pierce just their ears. But I attend a great church where I used to teach the 3-5 year olds (can't right now because of several life situations and can't always be there Wed nights now) and I also volunteer in the nursery. Every now and then we get a new family in who seems a little reluctant at first to hand their precious little angel over to me. So I let them slowly warm up to the idea. They stay in for a while, talk to me, learn that I'm a very nice and sweet person and they leave.
I'm just curious how it goes for everyone else. I mean we're the ones who did this to ourselves... for whatever reason, so we need to deal with it anyway. Me, I just like them and do like to stand out. Well that and the fact that every member of my immediate family has at least 3 tattoo's. Except for my children of course.
