Will God forgive people with tattoos if they repent?


Will God allow forgiven people with tattoos to be in His Kingdom?

Thank you for asking a question on This is your Bible.

The answer is ‘yes’.

Mark 3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

This is demonstrated in the case of Paul whose sin was far more grievous than having a tattoo.

1 Timothy 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

While we have life we can repent and turn to God and he will hear us.

Ezekiel 18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?


God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

‘The right path’ consists of belief of the gospel, repentance, baptism by immersion, living by the apostles’ doctrine and breaking bread regularly in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice.

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

I hope this helps.
