Are Masonic tattoos allowed in Freemasonry?
The idea of Masonic tattoos showing unmistakable signs of Masonic symbolism can be a bit of a controversial topic.
As most of the old-timers in the Craft would point out:
“According to your Obligation, you should never print or reveal Masonic symbols in public”.
We tend to disagree on that.
Personally, I think Masonic tattoos are a sign of pride and loyalty to the Fraternity and your Brothers. It does not disrespect the tradition and it does not reveal any secrets.
In my humble opinion, I see it as harmless as wearing a Masonic t-shirt or maybe even a Masonic ring!
You’ll also find the Square and Compasses symbol engraved outside many Masonic buildings and Lodges around the world, so how is a tattoo any different?
