The occult link of shaved heads and tattoos
from Unbroken Curses by Rebecca Brown, M.D. and Daniel Yoder:
"Christians need to be aware that most fads originate in witchcraft. 'You shall not shave around the sides of your head, nor shall you disfigure the edges of your beard' [it says in Leviticus 19:26-28]. 'You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you; I am the LORD.'
"These commandments -- not to shave the sides of the head, cut into the flesh, or to tattoo the skin -- are in a list of commandments against practices of the occult. Why? because in that time and down through history in many different cultures since then, these practices, which are actually demonic, have been ceremonially performed to honor the satanic realm.
"Through the centuries, men have shaved the sides of their heads and also sculpted designs and stripes into the hair on the sides of their heads as a mark of allegiance to the particular demon god they serve. In ancient Greece and Rome, the priests of Bacchus, their god of debauchery, left their hair a bit longer on top, cut the hair on the sides of their head very short, and then shaved stripes in the sides of their heads. They wore this hairstyle as a sign of priesthood and a symbol of their allegiance to Bacchus.
"Another popular hairstyle on men and boys is to have all of the hair fairly short, leaving one small bunch of hair long in the middle of the back. This little bit of long hair looks much like a tail, and many of today's teenagers do call it the fool's tail. That's a pretty accurate name for it. In reality, the style started in England some years ago. It was started by some rock-music performers who were also involved in a witchcraft group called Wicca. The tail is actually called the goat's tail and is a sign of allegiance to Satan, who is frequently represented by the goat.
"In Leviticus 19:28 God specifically commands us not to have tattoos or make marks or cuttings in our flesh. Over the years we have noticed that just about everyone involved in the occult in any way has a mark or tattoo of some sort."
