Revision as of 09:02, 1 May 2013 by Nisan (Removed halachot of "Body Piercings" for further review.)
The prohibition of tattoos
- It is forbidden to get tattooed.
- Vayikra 19:28, Makot 21a. One is not chayav unless there is both writing and engraving. Pouring ash on a wound is also forbidden because it looks like a tattoo even though there is no writing or engraving(Makot 21a).
