Circumcision v. Body Piercing

Circumcision, Body Piercing & Tattooing ...

Body Arts?

While debating circumcision, some Muslims alledged Body Piercing is an act of barbarism, unlike circumcision which is commanded by God (or Prophet Mohammad) and as such, a virtue, so they conceded.

Well, my opinion is body pierceing is nothing more than a personal hobby. And those who do it are normally grown ups or teenagers who typically already able to form an opinion on their own. This is nothing resembling circumcision (not even close) whereas in the case of circumcison, we are talking about baby that is barely one month old!
Personally, I don't fancy poking anything on my own body but I won't condemn those who do it ... So long they don't overly do it to the extend of causing serious injury or perhaps, becomes unbearbale to the public. I'd otherwise see it as a form of ... Body Arts.

Speaking of which, I see Body Piercing as no different from Tattooing. In fact, I think tattooing is worse simply because it is permanent.

If it is not permanent, you better believe it, I'd the first one to tatoo my body from head to toe! Admittedly, I am a coward when it comes to having something printed permamnently on my body ... simply because I am quite frickle-minded when it come s to arts.

God knows how much I love intriguing graphics ... You know what? I actually think fine tatoo like the one depicted here as ... SEXY!

Do you see tattoo as a form of arts or abuse?

Hmmm

It really depends...We're not into the tattooing at all circumstance, even though my family do somehow kid themselves about tattoos in regard. But I have ear piercings when I was a baby and I dont know if thats counted lol. But other than that, Muslims dont usually go with others but there are who do...seen belly piercing before. Not uncommon.

It depends how fundamental or religious a believer is. And from that, they can start to make up all kinds of rules to increase your 'piety to God'.

Cheers.

You got it, Sara "they can start to make up all kinds of rules to increase your 'piety to God'" ... This is what I think circumcison and baptism etc. all about: Just something folks try to show their piety. It's all worldly gesture which I doubt God ever asked for it ... I'd try to response to PL shortly, my PC went kaput! Praying the junk will be alive in next few hours ... God bless my 'mongrel' machine.
