What is one of the best elements about Christmas, aside from the obvious of Jesus’ birth? The presents? The tree? The food? Nope! For me, it’s the music!
I love all the Christmas music. …

Are Piercings A Sin?

Hello,

teen-with-tongue-piercingI’m 19 and a Christian and wanted to know if piercings are bad in the eyes of God. I wanted to get my tongue pierced for my own reasons, not to show off and not for pleasure. It’s just a personal thing that I strongly want to do.

My mother is obviously against it and keeps scaring me off the subject, the fact that piercing alone is like a sin. I’m always told that I’m a good child. I don’t take drugs, have sex, or steal and I’ve never had a fight in my life. But for some reason some people seem to think that piercings lead to sinful acts or is a mark of sin, but some how it’s ok for parents to pierce their daughter’s ears when they are a child.

I don’t get it because I only want to get it to personally express the inner me. I’ve gone through alot of grieving and sadness in my life that you won’t believe. Alone I have overcome them the best way possible. I just wanted to get this piercing to personally remember the strengh that God gave me so when times get hard in the future I will remember how much strengh I had.

I just want to know if getting a piercing is a sin and if so why?

Trophy of Grace replies…

Regarding piercings being a sin, the answer is no. 1 Corinthians 10:23 says,

“All things are legitimate [permissible--and we are free to do anything we please], but not all things are helpful (expedient, profitable, and wholesome). All things are legitimate, but not all things are constructive [to character] and edifying [to spiritual life].” – Amplified Bible

But honestly sister, tattooing and body piercings are real worldly customs that us Christians see and like. In our ‘freedom’ we try to Christianize these practices by getting crosses, scriptures, doves, Jesus face, etc. all in the name of witnessing our faith. The reality is that we just think it’s cool and wanted to get it. But why is the Church acting, expressing its self, and looking so much like the world? When in Romans 12:2 the Holy Spirit clearly instructs us,

“Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

Before I was saved I had my belly pierced and I had four holes in each ear. I also got a tattoo on my inner leg. Thinking back, even then I felt like I was doing something wrong and rebellious, but I was a rebel and I wanted everyone to know it. I didn’t care. Then after I was saved with a straight rebellious attitude, going against my own conscience, I once again got a tattoo on my shoulder. Each time I got a tattoo or piercing it was a carnal way of adorning my body and an expression of my rebellion. This is my own issue. Now this may not be the case with everyone and I am certainly not saying this is the case with you. However, I do think you should prayerfully seek God about your motives for wanting to get your tongue pierced as ‘a way of expressing the inner you’ and as a form of ‘remembering the strength that God gave you’ during a tough season in your life. Do you believe you are being lead by the Holy Spirit to do this or by your own desires? (Romans 8:14)

Pray and ask the Lord to search your heart about this issue and to align you heart with His will for you. I am sure He will give you the confirmation and direction you need. Proverbs 16:1-3 says,

1THE PLANS of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue.

2All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart).

3Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

One last thing, although you are 19 and considered an adult I want to tell you the same thing Solomon said in Proverbs 1:8-9,

mom-and-daughter-talking-270-thumb-270x270“My child, listen when your father corrects you. Don’t neglect your mother’s instruction. 9 What you learn from them will crown you with grace and be a chain of honor around your neck.”

Don’t despise your parents’ teachings and advice sister. They want the best for you. They do not want you to just go with the flow of the world or even to follow the examples of other Christians who are going with the flow of the world. They want you to be different than the world. They know that when we begin to act like the world and live like the world and express ourselves like the world we are in danger. Remember that you are the temple of God. You are fearfully and wonderfully made beautiful just like you are.

Before you decide to do this seek the Lord in His Word and also seek further godly counsel from other women of God. Whenever I am going to make an important decision for my life I seek advice from three different women of God who are full of His Word and love, after spending time in His Word. I usually get the confirmation I need. As Proverbs 1:5 says,

“Let the wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. Let those with understanding receive guidance…”

I am trusting our Lord to guide you in the way He wants you to go. Stay on the narrow road sister .

Sincerely,

Trophy of Grace

  • Dear Beckie,

    As mentioned in the posts and comments on this subject, you need to prayerfully talk to God about it. He is the one who will direct you in His Will. There are many Christians who feel it isn’t a sin, and some who do. Paul had something to say about different beliefs within a church (change the word eat with pierce):

    20 Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble. 22 You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right. 23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning. (Romans 14:20-23 The Message)

    What Paul was saying is that if you do something that you believe is okay but it causes others to stumble, don’t do it. If your church believes it is wrong, will it hurt other weaker Christians if they see you wearing earrings? If so, then it’s not a good idea.

    If you ever go to another church that does not believe it’s wrong to wear earrings, and you feel it is not a sin, then it’s safe to do so without hurting anyone else. That’s Paul’s message in a nutshell.

    This is truly between you and God. Seek Godly counsel from other women (Proverbs 11:14) and then pray about it in earnest. God will let you know what He knows is best for you. Thank the Lord that we are not walking alone! ;)

    God bless you with His Wisdom (James 1:5-6)!

    My religion says that piercings are cuttings according to Leviticus and that is why we are not allowed to wear earrings. I have not pierced myself anywhere. My mother pierced my ears as a baby. So if it was not my doing, why not wear an earring if the hole is already there? I don’t feel its wrong. Please answer.

  • admin says:

    Thank you for sharing your perspective D. Not everyone feels that piercings are for them. It goes against their conscience, therefore for them to do it would be wrong because it violates their conscience. If we do anything we believe is not right, we sin. Each of us must pray and seek God as to whether or not we should do whatever it is that we are contemplating, once we have peace about it then we may proceed, but if not, then we shouldn’t. (Romans 14)

  • D says:

    Tattoos referred to pagan rituals, while if a slave wanted to stay with his master after 7 years his ear would be pierced on the doorpost, so there’s nothing wrong with piercings.

  • admin says:

    Thank you so much for sharing your perspective and experience Patricia. What matters is that we seek God first about all things that we do. He is faithful to show us what to do. He is faithful to show us His will as we seek Him in prayer and in His Word. Keep seeking Him sister and stay on the narrow road.

  • Patricia says:

    I love the way Trophy of Grace answered this question; one reason why is because of all the scripture she used. It’s so true that we are not under the law, but under grace; and as such, there is great liberty in that.

    Of course it is of utmost importance to ask ourselves what the motive of our heart is in doing anything. And also, in the case of someone who is still living at home and under the authority of their parents, it is important to give the parents honor by being appropriately obedient. However, I also think that in all things, it is critical to do the biblical research to find out how our proposed plan of action matches up with scripture.

    I am a middle-aged woman and recently I had the opportunity to fulfill a wish I’d had for many years to get my nostril pierced. Certainly it had nothing to do with rebellion, simply a desire to express my sense of fashion because I thought it looked cute. I went ahead and did it; both my husband and I have been happy with it ever since.

    I found a great deal of scripture to support nostril piercing: Genesis 24:22,30,47 ~ a nose ring was a gift from Isaac to Rebekah before their wedding; Isaiah 3:18-23 ~ nose rings were common adornments of women in biblical times; and Ezekiel 16:10-14 ~ nose jewels were a gift from the Lord himself to His bride, the church.
    I have my ears pierced as well, for the wearing of earrings. Those two types of piercings are the ones that I find in the Bible, and those are the only ones I feel comfortable getting.

    My husband has tattoos that he got years ago, and I thought about getting one myself. Then I came across Leviticus 19:28, which seems to speak clearly against it. For that reason I made the decision not to get one. Although I knew that God’s grace would cover me if I chose to do it, I wasn’t comfortable doing something that might cause a weaker brother or sister to stumble.

    I don’t judge others on their piercings or tattoos. I wish I could get more myself :) But in coming to my own personal decisions, and using the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God as my guide, I feel very comfortable. No one can point at me and accuse me of dishonoring my body, the temple of the Holy Spirit, by getting a tattoo. And no one can rightfully accuse me of rebelling against God by getting a nostril piercing, because I have the scripture to support it. I put my actions before the Lord and I have a clear conscience ~ that is my prayer for each person in every situation.

    I don’t judge others on their piercings or tattoos. I wish I could get more myself :)

    No it’s not bad. As long as your parents are ok with it and you feel free by God to do it.

    I got my ears pierced when i was 2 then they came out and my mom didn’t know for a while but they closed up.About a year ago before my 11th birthday i decided to get my ears pierced and i’m glad i did i like the pretty earings but what i want to know is it Bad for my ears to be pierced? i mean i did it because i wanted to and my mom said okay it’s fine (my mom and grandma had been bugging me for years about it)but i did it because I wanted too but is it really bad? i’ll never get a tatoo or any other piercing (I don’t like pain at ALL!)
