Another perspective on tattooing

Some good observations by Andrew Sandlin on tattoos can be found here. In answer to his last question, The Biblical issue, it seems, therefore, is not NT discontinuity with the OT, but whether Lev. 19:28 parallels today’s tattooing practice, I would argue that Lev. 19:28 does not mirror or parallel today's modern practice of tattooing and even if it did I believe this falls under the ceremonial law which has been abrogated.
