Would getting a quote from the bible tattooed be wrong?

Im christian and want to get a tattoo of a quote from the bible, many john 16:33 or Hebrews 11:1. Im not getting anything bad or huge tattooed just something small with meaning. Would this be wrong for a christian? Thanks!

    It seems your intent is to honor God. Go for it! And ignore those who bring up verses from Leviticus. That's old covenant stuff, and we are under the new covenant of grace.

    I have a good one:

    "Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of egypt. She lusted after their genitals as large as those as donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that as stallions."

    Ezekial 23:19-20

    Yes, it would look rubbish and you're stuck with it for life. Get something that actually means something to you, not a random quote from the bible.

    Having a tattoo isn't really a spiritual issue to my way of thinking, but I do think that they're stupid and ugly.

    Yes, it would bewrong. Now if you were an atheist you could get whatever you liked tattooed anywhere.
