I never said Christians that decide to do it are doing it for pagan reasons. However, I did say that I believe the practice of tattooing is a worldly/pagan practice and as such, Christians should avoid getting them.
I know that because of your own experience and the context of your own bodyart and its associations in your mind, you have negative feelings about them. I can understand this.
At around the same time that you came to the Lord, leading you maybe in one direction as regards tattoos, even ones with a faith message, another trend has happened also, which is that women have now achieved complete tattoo equality. Which means that many Godly women of more mature years, knowing that may now freely express their tattoo equality, and aware of the many faith based conversations that arise as a result of tattoo designs that indicate a Biblical subject, are now doing it.
Some Christians may regret this, but for those Christian women of more mature years who choose to use their tattoo equality in this way, I guess it may be said that they are using it as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.
I don't expect, however, that everyone will have similar views about this, which to me is fine also.
