Tattooing in Jewish Law | My Jewish Learning

The prohibition of tattooing is found in the Torah: You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord (Leviticus 19:28).

It is the second part of this verse from which we derive the general prohibition against tattooing. From the outset there is disagreement about what precisely makes tattooing a prohibited act. The anonymous author of a mishnah [an individual statement in the compilation known as the Mishnah] states that it is the lasting and permanent nature of tattooing which makes it a culpable act: If a man wrote [on his skin] pricked-in writing, he is not culpable unless he writes it and pricks it in with ink or eye-paint or anything that leaves a lasting mark (Mishnah Makkot 3:6).

But Rabbi Simeon ben Judah disagrees and says that it is the inclusion of Gods name which makes it a culpable act: Rabbi Simeon ben Judah says in the name of Rabbi Simeon: He is not culpable unless he writes there the name [of a god], for it is written, Or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord’ (ibid.).

The Gemara[i.e., the Babylonian Talmud (BT)] goes on to debate whether it is the inclusion of Gods name or a pagan deity that makes it a culpable act.

Maimonides clearly sees the origin of this prohibition as an act of idolatry. He includes it in his section concerning idolatry and then explicitly states: This was a custom among the pagans who marked themselves for idolatry. But, [Maimonides] concludes that regardless of intent, the act of tattooing is prohibited (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Idolatry 12:11).

Professor Aaron Demsky of Bar-Ilan University, in an article in the Encyclopaedia Judaica (Writing), goes even further to suggest that non-idolatrous tattooing may have been permitted in biblical times. He cites the following biblical references: One shall say, I am the Lords, and another shall use the name of Jacob, and another shall mark his arm of the Lord and adopt the name of Israel (Isaiah 44:5), See, I have engraved You on the palms of my hands (Isaiah 49:16), and is a sign on every mans hand that all men may know His doings (Job 37:7).

While these verses may be purely metaphoric, Demsky suggests they could be taken literally as instances of tattooing that were acceptable in biblical times. He goes on to add that A. Cowley (in his 1923 book Aramaic Papyri of the Fifth Century B.C.) showed that in Elephantine [a city in Hellenistic Egypt], slaves of Jews were marked with the names of their owners as was the general practice.

Regardless of the exact limits of this prohibition, over time the rabbis clearly extended the prohibition to include all tattooing (Tosafot commentary to BT Gittin 20b).

In our day, the prohibition against all forms of tattooing regardless of their intent, should be maintained. In addition to the fact that Judaism has a long history of distaste for tattoos, tattooing becomes even more distasteful in a contemporary secular society that is constantly challenging the Jewish concept that we are created btzelem Elokim (in the image of God) and that our bodies are to be viewed as a precious gift on loan from God, to be entrusted into our care and [are] not our personal property to do with as we choose. Voluntary tattooing even if not done for idolatrous purposes expresses a negation of this fundamental Jewish perspective.

As tattoos become more popular in contemporary society, there is a need to reinforce the prohibition against tattooing in our communities and counterbalance it with education regarding the traditional concept that we are created btzelem Elokim. But, however distasteful we may find the practice there is no basis for restricting burial to Jews who violate this prohibition or even limiting their participation in synagogue ritual. The fact that someone may have violated the laws of kashrut at some point in his or her life or violated the laws of Shabbat would not merit such sanctions; the prohibition against tattooing is certainly no worse. It is only because of the permanent nature of the tattoo that the transgression is still visible.

New laser technology has raised the possibility of removing what was once irremovable. To date, this procedure is painful, long, and very expensive. However, it will probably not be long before the process is refined to the point where it will not be painful, overly involved, or very expensive. At such a time it might be appropriate for the [Conservative movements] law committee to consider whether removal of tattoos should become a requirement of teshuvah [repentance, or reversion to behavior according to Jewish norms], conversion, or burial.

The prohibition of tattooing throughout the halakhic literature deals only with personal, voluntary tattooing. With respect to the reprehensible practice of the Nazis who marked the arms of Jews with tattooed numbers and letters during the Shoah [Holocaust], the Shulhan Arukh [the authoritative 16th-century code of Jewish law] makes it clear that those who bear these tattoos are blameless: If it [the tattoo] was done in the flesh of another, the one to whom it was done is blameless (Shulhan Arukh, Yoreh Deah 180:2).

Tattoos which are used in cancer treatment or any similar medical procedure to permanently mark the body for necessary life saving treatment are also not included in the prohibition against tattooing (Shulhan Arukh, Yoreh Deah 180:3).

The prohibition against tattoos applies only to permanent marks to the skin. Therefore hand stamps or other popular childrens decorations which mimic tattoos and paint the skin in a non-permanent manner cannot be included under the prohibition of tattooing. However, lshem hinukh (for the purpose of education), it might be appropriate for parents to make the distinction clear to their children. These also present an excellent opportunity to introduce young children to the concept that we are created btzelem Elokim and the implications of that concept.

Tattooing is an explicit prohibition from the Torah. However, those who violate this prohibition may be buried in a Jewish cemetery and participate fully in all synagogue ritual. While no sanctions are imposed, the practice should continue to be discouraged as a violation of the Torah. At all times a Jew should remember that we are created btzelem Elokim. We are called upon to incorporate this understanding into all our decisions.

This responsum (a formal response by a rabbi to a question about proper Jewish practice) by a contemporary Conservative rabbi reviews relevant precedents and arrives at a conclusion very much like those reached by Reform and Orthodox authorities as well. One additional point raised by others is that tattoos are often desired by young people whose parents object, making it a possible violation of the precept to honor ones parents. The practical question to which Rabbi Lucas is responding has three parts: Is tattooing permitted? Would having a tattoo prevent a person from taking part in synagogue rituals? Would it preclude burial in a Jewish cemetery?

what should i look for in a tattoo shop? | Yahoo Answers

There are many qualities you want your shop to have. First of all it should look and smell clean. No grime or anything on the floor. There should also be an autoclave somewhere in the shop, preferably in it’s own bio-room. The autoclave should never be in a room where piercing or tattooing takes place. Furthermore the autoclave should be spore tested every month at least, and the shop should have certificates to verify that it passed. You also want to make sure your artist uses a new, sterile needle, and uses ink from disposable cups. Your artist should also make you feel comfortable; s/he shouldn’t intimidate you or give you a bad attitude.

As for research, ask around your town. Often the best way to find the good studios is to ask those with mod experience. Once you find a potential artist, make sure the above requirements are met, then take a look at her/his portfolio. You should like his work, if you don’t find another artist.

And remember, go with your feelings. If you feel that something is wrong with the shop, walk out. Your safety is king hun. It is THE most important thing in your whole tattooing experience.

I am currently in the process of completing the laser tattoo removal course with ERAZALASER. I decided to do my training with ERAZALASER after speaking with James on the phone. James was very knowledgeable and professional and made me feel confident with my decision to commence the training. I have so far completed the theory component of training with ERAZALASER and will continue to complete the practical components with them at a later stage. All members of the ERAZALASER team were professional and showed a genuine passion for the industry. I gained valuable knowledge from Chris to use in further practice with ERAZALASER.

Book Marks reviews of The Tattooist of Auschwitz by …

Its a triumphant account with a resourceful, bold, and charismatic hero who eludes death time and again. Adding to its cinematic potential is the fact that The Tattooist of Auschwitz is chiefly a love story … And yet, and yet: there is nevertheless something incongruous about this story of survival being framed as an Auschwitz romance … Morris, in her debut, has created a fast-paced narrative, filled with drama and suspense, and there are passages that are genuinely moving. But one wonders what Lales story would have looked like as a work of biography or as a more complex work of literary fiction … It is often said that words arent up to the task of conveying the horrors of atrocities like the Holocaust; at times, Morriss prose, lapsing into cliche, doesnt come close … Some of the most complicated aspects of Lales years at Auschwitz are alluded to primarily in dialogue, leaving them largely unexamined … In this well-intentioned but flawed work, she has succeeded in telling a remarkable story, if not in excavating its wrenching complexities.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz Summary & Study Guide

The Tattooist of Auschwitz Summary & Study Guide includes comprehensive information and analysis tohelp you understand the book. This study guide contains the following sections:

This detailed literature summary also contains Quotes and a Free Quiz onThe Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.

The following version of this book was used to create this study guide: Morris, Heather. The Tattooist of Auschwitz. New York: Harper, 2018.

Heather Morriss novel opens in the Auschwitz concentration camp during WWII, as a young man named Lale tattoos the number 34902 onto the arm of a young women. As their eyes meet, he is instantly smitten. The story then recedes in time to show Lales journey to this pointhow he arrived at Auschwitz Two-Birkenau in April 1942 along with countless other terrified young Slovakian Jewish men, how he suffered from Typhus fever and only survived because of the kindness of his bunkmates, and how he became an apprentice to Pepan, the tattooist responsible for inscribing unique identification numbers into the skin of each new prisoner. By July, Lale and Pepan have tattooed the arms of countless new prisoners and Lale has vowed that he will resist the Nazis by surviving the camp. At this point, the novel has come full circle and the scene described in the prologue is repeated again word for word; Lale tattoos prisoner 34902 and falls in love with her at first sight.

After Pepan mysteriously disappears, Lale is promoted to head Ttowierer and receives privileges such as better lodgings and extra rations, which he kindly distributes to fellow prisoners. Over time, Lale develops a complicated sort of friendship with Baretski, the young guard that keeps watch over him (and has the authority to end his life at any moment). He is crude and violent, yet he is humanized by being characterized as uneducated and by being given a sympathetic backstory. With the help of Baretski, Lale writes to the beautiful young prisoner he encountered, and they finally meet. He learns that her name is Gita, but she refuses to tell him her surname or her hometown; she has lost hope for her future and thinks of herself only as prisoner 34902 of Birkenau. Their relationship quickly evolves into a passionate love affair and Lale encourages Gita to believe in their future together; their love gives them the motivation that they need to survive, and they become integral to each others happiness. They watch over one another, and offer each other the support, help, and comfort that each of them needs.

Industrious and bold, Lale creates a network of smugglers within Auschwitz: the girls that sort through the prisoners confiscated goods bring him jewels, he uses these jewels to pay village laborers that sneak in food and medicine for him, which he in turn uses as currency for bribery and distributes among those in need. The working and living conditions at Auschwitz are horrendous and Lale is stupefied by the way that human beings are treated at the hands of the SS that oversee the concentration and extermination camp. The prisoners are worked like slaves building new blocks and crematorium and Lale witnesses the extermination of countless innocent lives within the camps walls.

A large group of Romany people are brought to the camp and they are lodged in Lales block. This becomes known as the Gypsy camp and Lale is fascinated by their nomadic lifestyle and becomes an honorary member of this close-knit community. They begin to feel like an extended family to him. Meanwhile, Lale becomes acquainted with the sickeningly cruel Doctor Mengele, who inspects each prisoner to determine their fate, selecting who will be put to work, who will be useful for human experimentation, and who should be extinguished right away.

When the SS guards discover Lale has been hoarding smuggled jewels and food under his mattress he is tossed into an interrogation cell, beaten, and imprisoned. Due to the connections he has made and the kindness he has shown to others he manages to escape execution, and after a stint working as a laborer he secures his old job again and resumes his previous routine. He is devastated when he discovers that the Gypsy camp has been emptied and that the men, women, and children he had come to consider family have all been murdered.

Finally, after two and a half years of excruciating life at Birkenau, witnessing the worst of humanity, rumors of an uprising circulate and when news reaches the camp of the advancing Russian army the SS officers hurry to destroy their records and transfer the prisoners. Gita is marched out of the gates with thousands of other female prisoners and just on time shouts back to Lale that her full name is Gita Furman and that she loves him. She escapes from the guards, finds refuge in a nearby village, and eventually makes her way to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, where she joins other camp survivors. Meanwhile, Lale finds himself on a train on its way to another labor camp. He escapes through the forest and a freezing river, only to be captured by Russian soldiers and forced to work for them as their pimp. After several weeks he is able to gain their trust and uses this as an opportunity to escape. He makes his way to Bratislava. Time stands still as Gita and Lale cross paths on the street and recognize each other. The story closes as Lale asks Gita to marry him and they walk away, one young couple among many in a war-ravaged city.

After the story closes, the authors voice takes over the narrative voice and she provides a historical note that gives the readers an overview of the lives of Lale and Gita, two real Holocaust survivors that this fictional account is based on. After the war, they married, had a child named Gary, and immigrated to Melbourne. To conclude, an afterword written by Gary himself provides a moving first-hand testament to the love he witnessed between his parents growing up.
