More BS from the Org....
Its OK for women to tattoo lipstick and other make-up crap on their face, but its not OK for anyone else to get a tattoo anywhere else on their body? There was a sister at our cong that got her lips and her eyebrows tattood. She announced it to eveyone in the cong, so it was no big secret. I figured that she would atleast get Private Reprove or something....After 2 monhts past, nothing happened. The sister was still very active in the meetings and everything. So, I talked to one of the elders about it. I explained that the bible says DO NOT tattoo ANY part of your body. I said "she clearly has done something against Jehovah and the bible." The elder said..."Well, in this case its different because its make-up." I said "No....The bible says "DO NOT TATTOO ANY PART OF THE BODY." He said that it did not apply to her...End of story.
So I then said.."I'm gonna tattoo my arm with an eagle or something since the sister got a tattoo, so can I"
He said..."Do that and I will make sure you lose all your privileges and maybe even get DF'ed. I was a Regular Pioneer and a MS at the time. After he said that I got scared and never got the tattoo. But this is bull....A tattoo is a tattoo, no matter where you get it on your body.
