    I have been thinking about this off and on a bit, because I have a few tattoos, and I like them but have refrained from them since I was much younger. I had a very turbulent childhood and as a young man revered things which were temporary. I had them long before they were looked on by others as a good thing in fact.

    I remember my grand fathers tattoo's very clearly. He received them while in the Navy during WWII as a Seabee probably between constructing landing strips in the Pacific.

    It seems to me that we are tattoo'd in a way as Catholics. We are anointed with oil at our confirmation. But, even more so we as Paul speaks about are bond servants to Our Lord. His indelible mark is upon us yet it is a secret mark. One that the world can not see. Only other followers and the Angels of Our Lord.

    Another mystery!

    Sacramental! That was the word I was looking for... Not works of God. Thank you AED!

    Sounds like a lot of "judging" going on here and now I'm offended ;):ROFLMAO:
    Just kidding! I have several tattoos myself. I had personal reasons for them, and I still like them, and have thought about getting more (it should prove to some people I'm not a rigorist....
    right?;)) That being said, every time I envision the Blessed Mother over me, I shirk from following through, so that must mean something (n)
