From a reader:
Dear Father – can you please advise if it is ok to have a tattoo. My
son who is 18 would like to have a tattoo in latin, via, veritas et
vita. I have searched the web, it does not look like the church
Is it okay? It is prohibited?
I don’t know and I don’t think so.
Holy Church doesn’t prohibit getting a tattoo. But tattoos are subject to cultural taboos and customs.
However, if your son is living under your roof, you could lay down a house rule that people who get tattoos can’t live there.
I suspect no one here will have an opinion about tattoos. Nope. No chance.
