Tattoo?

Question
I want to get a tattoo of my name in Hebrew - Can I?
Answer
If you are Jewish you are not allowed to have a tattoo (Leviticus 19: 28). If you are not Jewish you are not recommended to have a tattoo; Any cool and trendy tattoo you put on today will go out of fashion sooner or later, I haven’t yet seen a person with a tattoo that some years after he made it did not regret it was permanent. Why do something you can't ever go back on?
