Getting Tattoos

Question
I’m not religious, but I still feel guilty getting a tattoo because of my Jewish Heritage. Is it ok if I get one?
Answer
Getting a tattoo is a serious violation of a Torah precept. The fact that you feel bad about it shows that even though you are not religious, your Jewish soul senses that this is something wrong. Why ignore what it is telling you?
