Tattoo Markings
Are Noahides forbidden to put tattoo markings on their bodies?
The Rambam says that the only prohibition for Gentiles is a tattoo which is part of a religious cult - i.e one that signifies the person's intent to sanctify or submit him/herself to the service of a particular idol. This applies even if the tattoo itself is not part of the worship of the idol.
Rabbi Yitz
Would it be wrong to get tattoos removed if he/she wanted to? Isn't that a form of deliberately hurting/desecrating the body? I am asking this because I have 2 tattoos that I would like to get removed (or at least thinking about getting removed).
It is permitted to have tattoos removed as a cosmetic procedure, if the person thinks this will make his/her appearance more pleasing to him/herself or to others.
Hi! You should call your doctor's office for a professional recommendation. (There are FDA-approved laser treatments for tatoo removal.)
