Just as much, where in the Bible does it condemn tattoos?

The verse in the Bible that most Christians make reference to is Leviticus 19:28, which says,”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.” So, why is this verse in the Bible?

On the other hand, are tattoos a sin in Christianity? Some Christians take issue with tattooing, upholding the Hebrew prohibition (see below).

Getting a tattoo is forbidden in the Bible. You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD.

Can Christians get cremated?
