An Apam based spiritualist, Mallam Yaa Wadudu, has cautioned Ghanaian youth to refrain from patronising tattoos, arguing that the practice is the cause of gay and lesbianism.

According to him, all the symbols that people tattooed on their bodies had spiritual implications which often compelled them to engage in lesbianism, homosexualism, prostitution, alcoholism and stealing.

“Some people are tattooing themselves with all kinds of symbols without knowing the meaning of those symbols they put on their bodies,” he noted.

Mallam Wadudu was speaking to The Mirror in an interview about the effects of foreign cultural influence in the country and the lack of respect for the country’s customs and traditions.

He explained that such practices (tattooing) were new to the country’s traditions and that many religious books including the Bible forbid people from inscribing symbols on their bodies.

He said the tattooed symbols could have dire consequences on the lives of those who practised them.

Mallam Wadudu said, “the snakes, lions, scorpions, frogs and other animal symbols they put on themselves all have spiritual meanings.”

He said those who had tattooed themselves needed a powerful spiritual deliverance from the influence of the symbols they inscribed on themselves.

“Those who put the symbols on their bodies have to be delivered from the influence of the spirits in the symbols”, Mallam Wadudu explained.

He also cautioned those who go for spiritual protection and fortification to honour the promises they made to the deities they consulted before they suffered the wrath of such deities.

According to him, many accidents occurred during Christmas and other festive periods due to such unfulfilled promises people made to deities they consulted.

“If you go for spiritual power and you refused to honour your part of the process, the deities will not only vent their anger on you alone but the whole community as well which sometimes result in the accident we see,” he stated.
