Hi LST! I've been lurking for a while now and figured I'd join because this forum is full of good stuff.

Anyway, I'm 31, have two small (palm-sized) tattoos from when I was younger and am just about to get started on a larger piece (fukai-hikae size -- upper arm, shoulder & pec) that I'm really excited about.

I wonder what percentage of Mormons (or members of the Church of Latter-Day Saints) have tattoos?

Mormons are super-dooper anti-tattoo, aren't they? I think (really, really don't quote me on this) I remember being told that both major denominations of the Mormon church strictly forbid tattoos.

It would be interesting to know. Having grown up here (and hence, around a lot of Mormons) I do know that tattooing is quite taboo in LDS culture and I would imagine that tattoos are extremely rare among individuals who have always identified with Mormon culture. It's actually something that can be used as a cultural differentiator even here in SLC.

Mainstream LDS are definitely anti tattoo (I think it might be in their doctrine). Not sure about RLDS/CoC but I bet it's the same doctrine on tattoos.

Bumping my intro thread because I thought I'd post a progress pic of my current work.

Quick 2 hour shading sesh. Had a rough time with it tonight because I was -exhausted- from lack of sleep and a lot of emotional crap going on lately, but was glad I got some chair time with my artist. Wanted to do more but I could feel my body fading on me.

edit: finally convinced the SOB to add to the post
