Question: Is it permissable to have permanent make-up done? Permanent make-up is applied with a needle under the first skin layer and usually stays for about a year. Does this fall under the prohibition of getting a tattoo or is there a Heter for this?
Answer: Several important Poskim have forbidden the use of permanent make up because of the similrity to tattooing. Because there are different methods, one should consult a halachic authority in the specific case.
