Piercings and Tattoos – Mormon Quotes

General Conference, October 2000; “Likewise the piercing of the body for multiple rings in the ears, in the nose, even in the tongue. Can they possibly think that is beautiful? It is a passing fancy, but its effects can be permanent. Some have gone to such extremes that the ring had to be removed by surgery. The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve have declared that we discourage tattoos and also ‘the piercing of the body for other than medical purposes.’ We do not, however, take any position ‘on the minimal piercing of the ears by women for one pair of earrings’ – one pair.” – Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley

Lev. 19:28Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

So is it bad or not?
