A. I get this question all the time, and the answer is Yes. While Jewish Law forbids permanent tattoos, and that’s clear in the Torah – having one does not disqualify a Jew from being buried among his/her people. You should be aware however, that various burial societies may have their own qualifications as to whom they would allow to be buried in their burial plots, and these qualifications may go beyond tattoos. But this would be their own rules, and not one of general Jewish law.
