Apparently that is the (non-exclusive) term used to describe body art that contains some ostensibly faith-based message. I have written previously about the subject of body art and basically I come down on the side of it being an ill-advised practice. But, that said, I concede that is it a purely individual decision. And I will also agree that in the context of eternity, it (body art) really will have nothing to do with a person’s salvation, or condemnation.
Still, no matter where you land on this subject, I have to seriously wonder if this sort of thing has a place during the course of a worship service, when glorifying God through prayer, the authoritative proclamation of God’s word, and the practice of the two sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, is appropriate…even in a culturally relevant, contextualized setting.
Body art, including some of its more extreme forms as a sermon topic?
Chancel tattooing during the teaching from God’s word?
I think not.
What say you?
