“ I regret my tattoos. It is something I wish I never had. it’s so addictive. You do one, you would do again and again.
I have tattoos in six parts of my body: back of my palm, waist, top of my boobs, left leg, neck and arm.
When asked if the tattoos connote anything or mean anything to her, she replied:
“Not necessarily, I just loved tattoos. But that was when I haven’t grown up and never knew it’s wrong in God’s sight”
Anita Joseph confirmed she is now a born-again Christian now and added she has now realised “tattoos are unsightly before God”, even quoting the Bible to back her position.
She said she wished people who are yearning to do so would desist from the sinful act, saying she is ready to clean hers out.
Her desire to speak out against this trend (tattoos) which is most common among entertainers is born out of an encounter with a fan, whom Anita said told her she wanted to have tattoos as Anita’s because she sees Anita as her mentor and would do anything Anita does.
“ She said I love everything about you and so whatever you do I want to do. I begged her not to have tattoos because tattoos are addictive.
She was happy and thanked me for telling the truth. At the end of the day, I was happy I touched someone positively. That told me that whatever I do, someone, somewhere wants to do it, so now I am careful of what I do now” she said.
