Don’t ask a Rabbi- this would be offensive. Judaism does not allow tattoos- and tattooing something on a human body, in hebrew, a language we consider to be “lashon hakodesh” (the holy language) IS offensive.

- Ruth is correct. Her answer is short and to the point. Of course, I’m not “known” for short, but for trying to explain the details when I can.
Perhaps understanding a bit of the reasons and history of Jews and tattoos may help. This answer also combines my own anecdotal reasons and understandings as a Jew, too. It is a violation of direct commandment in Leviticus.
In Leviticus 19:28, the Torah forbids tattooing: “You shall not scrape your flesh for a (dead) soul, and tattoos do not put upon you, I am the Lord.” This was one of the commands to the covenant nation that appears to set Israel apart from the other nations surrounding them who often had tattoos marking their allegiance to false gods. Throughout the Tanakh, Jews are forbidden to follow the practices and ways of the foreign beliefs that surrounded them so that the path and messaage of Torah is not eschewed or corrupted. Even among the un-Orthodox like me, this commandment seemed to have a lot of weight throughout the centuries. Jews and tattoos do not mix. It was also one of the reasons that the tattooing of Jews in the concentration camps was such a horrible thing. It was another act to humiliate and to violate the faith and practice of Jews. Both of my parents were raised to believe that it is just not something a Jew does. They passed that down to both my brother and me. I know Jews with tattoos. I have known Jews with the concentration camp tattoos. All of them are dead now. The only living Jews with tattoos I know personally, put them there themselves. I cannot seem to come to accept that. I have no problem with seeing tattoos on most people. I have found myself admiring the beauty of some tattoos. I can appreciate the deeply spiritual and cultural significance of tattoos to certain peoples. I can appreciate the meaning of empowerment or strength a tattoo on a bald head can give to a cancer survivor, But somehow, in my thinking to see a tattoo on children or on Jews, it does not seem right. It makes me sad to see it. So, does this view make me seem superstitious? Narrow? On the other hand, does it seem contradictory or odd that I find validity in this yet I will eat shellfish? I never claimed to be uncomplicated nor am I strictly observant of all custom or law.
Nevertheless, I believe a tattoo of Jewish symbols or in Hebrew certainly seems the most blatant way to dishonor the command of Leviticus. It is a very un-Jewish thing to do to your body.
Despite it being against Jewish law to get a tattoo, a Jew with a tattoo can be buried in a Jewish cemetery, contrary to popular urban myth.
To any Jew who considers a tattoo: Are you one to blindly follow a fad, or are you a light unto the nations?
Only those who can understand the Hebrew for your tattoo will be able to appreciate the meaning of the words, yet Jews are also precisely the people you’re most likely to offend by placing tattoos on your body using the holy language of Torah.
Please consider these things before you place such a permanent mark on your body.
Your being black is simply a non-issue in this matter. Discrimination based on race or ethnicity is against Jewsh law.

- I concur with Ruth. Judaism doesn’t allow tattoo’s.

Thumbs downHebrew is the symbol language for the original holy bible. It is considered very sacred and stylish too. Hebrew is very close to the Jews and has spread vastly to all the parts of the heavily networked world. The symbols and letters have become very popular amongst the new generation …
