  • yes it says it which is why you cannot be buried in the Jewish cementary if you have a tatoo etc. (makes the holocaust numbers even more chilling doesn't it b/c they were not only impersonalizing them but also making them break their own laws etc. and blocking them from their faith both in this life and the next)

  • There are Christians who say that tattoos are wrong, and those who have no qualms with them. Its all up to personal interpretation/opinion.

  • Leviticus 19:28
    'You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the LORD.

  • As mentioned above. leviticus 19:28
    "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD."
    Now it is up to you how to interpret it & whether God meant you or not.
