Question
Hi, I'm doing a project for my world religion class and I was wondering about your faith's view on body modifications like tattoos

Answer
Steven

Temporary body painting during religious celebrations are seen to be acceptable practice. However tattoos were not in existence during olden days when religious scripts originated. Its a recent phenomenon. In brief tattoos of presents days have no place in our faith.
