    Pt 2: I will include just two of the studies I referenced on how tattoos are perceived by men. Again, these articles are not my personal views nor the church’s views. This is how society at large views these types of tattoos. 1. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/head-games/201305/how-do-people-view-women-tattoos 2. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2337789/Study-suggests-tattoo-really-IS-tramp-stamp-Men-likely-try-chat-painted-lady-think-promiscuous.html

    Hi, Karen, Thank you for your comments. I do not want to come across as projecting “disgust, superiority, and an all around negative to people who may be tattooed and wanting to come back to church.” I apologize for coming across that way. The term “tramp stamp” is not my personal term, rather the common societal term for a type of lower back tattoo that is popular among women. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower-back_tattoo. My reference of the term “tramp stamp” was not intended to pass judgment on women who already have them. In context of when this was said in the sermon, I was intending help young women who are considering getting one, to think twice. As a woman with a tattoo, you have an opportunity to help the younger women who are under great societal pressure to get tattoos. Your personal experiences can be a powerful tool in the lives of others and an invaluable help. You are needed and wanted in the church.
