Actually, it was written in scripture to discourage getting tattoos that were part of Pagan rituals and the "mark of the beast".
It was forbidden under the Levitical law in the Bible, but this doesn't apply to most sects of religion (like Christianity).
If you read Galatians 5:1, you'll find that you have the "liberty of Jesus Christ".


Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.


The short answer is that there's nothing wrong with getting a tattoo as a religious follower as long as it isn't something that goes against the will/love of god (i.e; 666, false gods, an act of rebellion against your parents, etc).
If one takes scripture literally, you'll find that men aren't even supposed to shave their beards ever.

T'is the lesson of the day.

Well for me its mostly the dangers of Health effects it still has negative side effects if you do get a Tattoo like how the needles could be infected the risk of getting HIV the ink seeping into other places in the body, not scripture in the end of the day those things draw the concern more.

If some one got a Tattoo ehh fine but to me it feels like risking a lot just for a drawing on the skin I just don't think its worth doing again mostly for the Health effects not the scripture.

Each has their own view on tattoos, which is perfectly acceptable/fine.
My response was mostly to clarify some of the scripture-focused reasons that came up.

To your other points, however, I would say that the vast majority of the health concerns focus on where you get your tattoo (parlour) and who is the artist of your tattoo.
I watched as all of the tools (needles and guns) were soaked in a jar of freshly poured alcohol before they even got close to me (they went through this process twice: once for the outline and once for the coloring).
At the same time, many people will go to some RV in the middle of a campground and get a tattoo for $25-50 from some dude who has a tattoo gun that he bought from a pawn shop.
Aftercare is important as well.
Ignoring it and just treating it as though the session with the tattoo artist is enough will yield scabs which can lead to infection.

Like you said, it's kind of a pro and con situation when it comes down to the individual.
My responses aren't to give you the impression that I'm telling you to get a tattoo.
Rather, they're more to ensure that if someone else who is interested in getting one read through this thread that they aren't left with the fear that every tattoo runs the risk of HIV or an infection or feeling that their religious scripture is that black and white on tattoos.
I hope I'm not coming across as screaming at you to get a tattoo, as I'm more interested in educating you (even if you never choose to get one, which is just as cool as not getting one, imo) or someone who happens to stop by and wants to get one.

Yeah I get it and actually in the past I did wanted to get one but for putting the name of my Ex on my arm because
I was mad in love with her but things went out of hand so yeah it never happened.

Yeah I see your point and its fine I see what you mean but when it comes to me getting a tattoo I'm no stranger
to that in the past.

Tattoos can be a form of art, piece of expression, daily reminder, etc. I personally like tattoos, although I don’t have any at the moment. I’ve been trying to fine tune any ideas for my first one. If anything, I’ve been researching tattoo artists more than the actual design.
