-- There are two things in life I’ve never been even
remotely tempted to do: 1) Get a motorcycle and 2) Get a tattoo.
Now I have friends who have done one or the other and even several
very good friends who’ve done both and seemingly have lived
Not for me. When I think about motorcycles, the word “spatula”
comes to mind. Think about it for a moment. And when I think of
tattoo, two words come to mind: “ugly” and “off.”
So let’s say you’ve got this tattoo and you want
to get it off. How do you do it? Well, not easily, according to
people who know. The three primary choices are: lasers, surgery
One on-line article had this advice: “Home techniques for
tattoo removal, such as the use of a hot cigarette or heated coat
hanger, are not recommended. The scarring and infection rates
are very high with these methods.”
Now that’s a revelation, isn’t it? Kind of like saying
hitting your thumb with a ball peen hammer hurts. But hang on,
you know someone very famous who has a tattoo?
Isaiah 49:16 informs us that God does: “Look, I’ve
written your names on the backs of my hands.” Or as the
Amplified Bible puts it, “I have indelibly (tattooed) you
on each of my hands.”
Well, my goodness, you have to have a very personal relationship
with someone to have that person’s name tattooed somewhere
on your body. There are those who say that God is merely some
impersonal “force” somewhere. The Bible denies that
base canard. No one has ever wanted intimate contact with you
more than your Creator.
