Matthew Henry's Leviticus Chapter 21 Bible commentary...
Laws concerning the priests.
- As these priests were types of Christ, so all ministers must be followers of him, that their example may teach others to imitate the Saviour. Without blemish, and separate from sinners, He executed his priestly office on earth. What manner of persons then should his ministers be! But all are, if Christians, spiritual priests; the minister especially is called to set a good example, that the people may follow it. Our bodily infirmities, blessed be God, cannot now shut us out from his service, from these privileges, or from his heavenly glory. Many a healthful, beautiful soul is lodged in a feeble, deformed body. And those who may not be suited for the work of the ministry, may serve God with comfort in other duties in his church.

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Why would you want to defile it by any means? I really believe that if God wanted you to have Tattoo He would have given you a birth mark ok?
Nevertheless, there are those individuals who have not come into the knowledge of that truth according to scripture and have already made that mistake, but God is merciful, and will forgive our ignorance. Now once you come into the knowledge of the truth, He expects us to adhere to His word. Amen? If you already have a tattoo or cuts, or piercing on your body before giving your life to Christ; He will forgive this sin, so don't allow the enemy to stop you from coming to God just as you are. In the end you get a new body, Praise God for that. Now that you know the truth walk in it whole heart, mind and body!

For the Jew, if they follow the faith, they must realize God had reasons,those reasons he explains. I must concur with his wisdom.
As for me as a Christian, I live under his dispensation of faith, now law. I shave, nevertheless, not considering that heathenish, I do consider cutting the flesh and making indelible markings thereupon, a heathen practice and I do not subscribe to it. Is is sin? For me it is, and I am surprised that so many claiming to live as a follower of Christ do the tattoo.
As for me . . . Glen

Purity and righteousness should be maintained by those called to be priests who are all born again christians.
