Halacha - Tattoo's
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

While it is forbidden according to Halacha to create a tattoo, one who already has one is still a full-fledged Jew and lives and passes on like anyone else. However to avoid embarrassment, many look into the option of having the tattoo removed.
