Another day in quarantine. Another random curiosity.
Will people with tattoos go to heaven? What does your religion say about this?

Most of the Christians who condemn tattooing would quote this verse from the Holy Bible:
“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.”
But some argue that this pertains to the religious-cultural norms in the pagan cultures where they’d cut and tattoo the dead. Most, if not all, tattoos in those times would mean branding of slaves and property or ritual to appease Gods. These days people see it as a form of self-harm – which is also a no-no in the Bible because our bodies are temples and should never be disfigured.
I’m not the most devoted, but I’m still a believer, and I doubt that if you’re truly deserving of going to heaven, tattoos can’t disqualify you.
