What does her German lyrics tattoo say?
“Jetzt und immer die Segen von der Vater und bleibst Unschuldig bis Er kommt”
Which translates into something along the lines of this:
“Now and always have the blessing of the father and remain blameless until the end”
Is Lights Christian? What are her religious views?
I’ve been asked this question many times before and I always answer the same way. Lights has never really publicly talked about her religion and what exactly she believes in. I’ve always thought of religion as a personal subject and I’m sure there is a reason why she chooses not to talk about it much. She briefly talks about her faith in this video interview (around the 8 minute mark) I hope this will help answer some of your questions.
