In Judaism, one is not allowed to buried in a Jewish cemetary if they "don a tatoo" on their body unless they have a number from the concentration camp. In other cultures having a tatoo or tatoos on the body is considered a custom that has been followed for many years. I would look at a person with a tatoo on their body and judge it, as to where that person came from and if it is a widely accepted practice. In this country, tatoos were mostly donned by enlisted sailors in the navy. Many of the younger generation are now having tatoos put on their body in this country. The only thing that I would say, is that tatoos should be discreetly covered if they are going on a job interview. Also, I have known several young people who have regretted getting tatoos put on their body. Sometimes "following the crowd" is not always the wisest decision!
