Trinity Church pastor Mark Driscoll answers whether Christians should get tattoos, Scottsdale, Arizona, April 11, 2016.

Tattoos are celebrated by some to be a creative outlet for self-expression and individuality, while others have quoted the Bible to oppose body ink. Arizona-based Trinity Church pastor Mark Driscoll attempts to answer this oft-debated question: Is it OK for Christians to get tattoos?

In a video newsletter posted to his website this week, Driscoll said that while he doesn’t have any tattoos, and neither do his wife and teenage children, he isn’t opposed to them. “I’m not against ’em, but [I] just don’t have one,” he explained. There was, however, one caveat.

“When it comes to tattoos, there’s only one place in the Bible that seems to say you can’t get a tattoo,” the pastor said, and referred to Leviticus 19:26-30.
