Its forbidden for Jews to tatoo their bodies. The body is not one's to do with as one pleases. It belongs to G-d and the Jew inhabits it on temporary loan from G-d. One must act holy, be seen as holy and imitate G-d.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus

In many ways, this is a completely bogus news article. Out of the millions of Jews in South Florida, they were able to locate one Jewish tattoo artist and not one other Jew who was tattooed.

The Palm Beach Post is just making a story out of nothing here . . I guess they think it will sell lots of newspapers as it was on the front page of the Sunday edition.

I can’t understand why Christians think being tattooed is okay, and Jews think it is unacceptable. I always cringe when I see a woman wearing a tattoo . . I guess I almost expect a Sailor to be wearing one . . or a member of a motorcycle group.

"I want to represent what they went through," Brenner said.

by coloring your tatto, mo? yeah, that will really give you the proper perspective of what the holocaust jews went through, you mo-ron.

i have decided to take your endless ridicule and name-calling of anyone who has a tattoo as charming. so i am pinging you to this article.

and as there is a good chance you dislike jews almost as much as you hate tattooed folks, this should be a fun one. go get 'em!

"My parents were kind of upset when they found out, and so was my grandma, but it isn't that big of a deal," Engelhardt said. "I think you should take religion as more of a guideline instead of just rules saying this is how you should live. I think banning tattoos is a little bit ancient, and we're kind of past that."

Oy gevalt.

“A tattoo should really mean something to you,” Brenner said. “Mine represents my religion and family.”

Moe Brenner also serves Ham and Lobster to celebrate his Passover Seder. Moe is just a very deep guy.

Anthony Fratello, the Reform rabbi of Temple Shaarei Shalom in Boynton Beach, said he has very mixed emotions about tattoos on Jewish people.

He believes that the biblical text barring tattoos is "a bit vague"

He probably also believes that Leviticus 18:22 is also "a bit vague"

A couple thousand years ago, a cross was an instrument of torture...now it is all-but-mandatory adornment...

The 27-year-old Boca Raton tattoo artist boasts a large Star of David on his upper right arm engraved with Abram, his Hebrew name.

It's not really very relevant to this article, but I watched a documentary about the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang the other day. Ironically one of the leaders is Jewish and also has a Star of David tattoo on his upper arm. If I remember right, he also had a number of swastikas tattooed on him.

Best tattoo I ever saw was on a twenty-something girl who tattooed her name as part of her tramp stamp. That was she avoids those awkward moments when the wrong name is called out. Very functional, tres chic. /Semi-sarc

"it was a deliberate desecration when they tattooed concentration camp inmates."

I doubt they gave it a second thought. SS members had their numbers tattooed on their upper arm. The number thing isn't Nazi. It's German. They numbered everything. Ever see a cork from a bottle of German wine?

“I think you should take religion as more of a guideline instead of just rules saying this is how you should live”

THIS is the heart of his problem. He wants to come across as religious but he has tailored his observance of his religion to fit his own wants. Personally I don't like to see tattoos on anyone. That being said, only son will graduate the USNA this coming spring and will be going Marines. He has said he may get a tattoo of the Marine symbol with his blood type below. He's as Conservative as you can be so what am I to do??

Perhaps the Jewish proscription of tattoos stems, at least in part, from the medical fact that tattooing, until not long ago, was associated with a risk of contracting hepatitis and other infections.

1. Tattoos are gross, even when on sailors and strippers. Of course, this is just one man's opinion.

2. This is Boca Raton, a place I know all too well, having finished high school there, and having parents who have been living there for 18 years now. The Jewish kids you see with tattoos are far from kosher.

I still wonder what happened to the kid I knew back in my teens who would walk around Mizner Park and the Town Center Mall with a swastika t-shirt, despite being of the Jewish persuasion.
