How does tattoo removal fit into the picture of redemption? Despite their past, offenders who come to Christ have a new identity and we are to receive them as brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. Even a former criminal can learn from his mistakes and renounce his sins, becoming a great leader in God’s hands.
Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
(Hebrews 13:1-3 NIV)
