Is it blasphemy to get tattoos of religious meaning?
It depends on your interpretation of the Bible. I have tattoos, but believe myself to be a God-knowing man. What about all of the Marines who got tattoos after the war? Were they all blasphemists, and did all of them go to Hell? I think that some indiscretions will be understood in human nature, by God. The true biblical definition of blasphemy is to speak against with contempt. The worst of which would be the only unforgivable sin, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Calling things that are of the Spirit evil is blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 12:31)

Answer Blasphemy can be a reference to one or more gods in a manner considered objectionable by a religious authority. So this may include using sacred names such as that of Jesus as stress expletives without intending to pray or speak of sacred matters. More serious examples of blasphemy invilve language expressing disbelief or disapproval of others' beliefs, or ridiculing religious figures or symbols.

Profanity also suggests disrespect to any religious figure and if you wish to include blasphemy, that is an offensive attack on religious figures, is sinful and in violation of the 10 Commandments.
Blasphemy is defined as a reference to one or more gods in a manner considered objectionable by a religious authority. Since Christians regard the Holy Spirit as God, it is possible to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. However, just saying something bad is not necessarily blasphemy - on this definition, it also must be considered objectionable by a religious authority.

No. It doesn't change the fact that you have matching tattoos that will bind you all the more. There has been an odd fascination with "meanings" and the differences of same regarding tattoos for the last 8 years or so. A lot of tattoos have no meaning whatsoever, though in your case this is quite different.
The tat may have a religious significance... see Matthew 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. Sparrow (swallows, you may be confused with) are traditional nautical/Navy tattoos that signify that the sailor has traveled a certain amount in his life. Same with Nautical stars.
It's a bit played out that tattoos have to have "meaning" to them. For the most part, tattoos are skin decoration and little else unless you are getting it for tribal purposes related to religion, but in a way all tattoos have some kind of meaning to them, but it is usually only relative to the person that is wearing it.
Why has David Cameron blasphemed against the churches of England and the Lord Jesus Christ by legalizing same-sex marriage?
A: Blasphemy is defined (Oxford English Dictionary) as profane talk or the [inappropriate] use of religious names. Blasphemy is not defined as granting of rights or obligations that some other people in society may regard as unacceptable. Whatever the rights and wrongs of gay marriage, it is not blasphemy.
