Tattoo at burial

undefined

Rabbi Yirmiyohu Kaganoff

Elul 26, 5768
Question
I know yhat the Torah prohibits making tattoos, but one does not have to get it reomved and can even convert if one already has one. Will cemetaries allow burial if one has a tatoo?
Answer
There is no Halachic problem with burying someone who is tattooed, although it is not a good idea to appear before the Creator this way. They can be removed permanently.
