...the "Who here has guns" and "Who here has tattoos" threads that used to be in here? :|

Did a key word search and came up with nothing. Those were two of the most interesting threads on the boards....

Glad to see you back! Been quite awhile since you've posted. As for the Guns and Tattoos threads, I imagine they were removed for lack of participation.

It's a conspiracy by members of the US government to take away your right to bear arms ;)

Or even the right to bare arms, important to all t-shirt wearers

That's sort of what I figured. Oh well. :Cool:

...and those in the anti-tattoo camp.

Is there such a thing?

Never really been interested in "inking up" myself, but never met anyone that had strong negatives about Tat wearers.

Yeah, there is. A quick search with Yahoo! turned this up:

Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.
Leviticus 19:28

I was not aware of that, but you'll find more if you look. In many Christian circles, the above is apparently controversial. But some take it seriously. Others say look at the context and culture, the reason for the "ban", and try to compare that to today.

I guess I view that as more isolated pockets, rather than an Anti-Tattoo org. But, I understand what you are talking about.

FWIW the Christians I associate with and attend church with tend to be as heavily inked as the rest of our society. It simply isn't an issue.

EDIT: also FWIW, not personally keen on gross or creepy body art regardless. If I wouldn't want it as a poster on a wall, I don't want to see it on flabby flesh. :p

One good thing about tatts. Makes identification easy for the cops and morticians.

No tattoos here Harry, but the US government probably has at least a dozen sets of my fingerprints after working for them all those years! ;P

Just get one or two that are real visible... you'll meet them quickly, trust me ;)

For those unaware, Leviticus is the third book of the Torah.. which is fundamental to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. However, often superseded (or flatly ignored) ... Oh the chapter also describes blood sacrifices to be made.

Things like this, are why many things within the chapter are controversial (unless, that is, they support your view point.. then they seem to be highly touted, but no one seems to be willing to live by all the laws laid out in Leviticus.)

Not my intent to dis anyone or start arguments, but I will listen to the anti-tattoo crowd when they show up wearing Phylacteries and Fringes on the hems of their robes, plus following all the other requirements in the Torah.
The way I read it, it's all or none, you don't get to pick and choose . . .

Absolutely. This is why it's always fun talking with students about confirmation bias especially when they don't think they're biased. ;)
