If I recall correctly the Abrahamic religions forbid tattoos, but in spite of this many people get religious tattoos. My sister has a cross on her back, the Lords' Prayer tattooed in Arabic on her shoulder and in 'Aramaic on her mid back. Do you ever think there is any hypocrisy in honoring your religion with an act that would be forbidden by it?

From what I understand, tattoos with religious significance are mostly symbolic.
And those who get them, aren't necessarily practising their religion to the best of their ability.
I know many people, mainly Christians, that have these types of tattoos. And from what I've observed they are usually not that familiar with the teachings of their religion.
Or because they simply don't know that it's against the religious teachings.0

I personally wouldn't do it because I'm not a fan of tattoos to begin with0
