Hart explained that this verse referred to the ancient mourning practices of the Canaanites that were forbidden for the Israelites.In the article “Physical Graffiti: Tattoo You” in Envoy Magazine issue 7.4, Deacon Robert Lukosh from the Archdiocese of Portland wrote that tattoos are morally permissible as long as they respect the dignity of the person: “Body art as a form of adornment, that is ordered to the ultimate good of the person and to humanity, if it observes modesty and avoids vanity, and if it respects the fundamental integrity of the human person—including the integrity of the body—can be morally permissible.” However some argue that Scripture prohibits tattoos in the Old Testament book of Leviticus: “Do not lacerate your body for the dead, and do not tattoo yourselves. The law was meant to communicate to people that mourning wasn’t necessary if they believed in God’s salvation.
