    I do agree. I dont have markings on my body or piercings. I’m a proud Jewish Army Veteran.

    What if you have it removed in good faith, but it leaves a scar in its place?

    • michael says:

      You can be buried in a Jewish Cemetery regardless if you have tattoos or not. Although it is considered desecration of the body to have tattoos, they are no longer prohibited however certainly not encouraged.
