Query by CecyPdeL: Can Russian Jewish folks get tattoos and even now get buried on Jewish burial grounds?
I hope no one will get offended by my question. I am just very curious about religion and culture.
I was under the impression Jewish men and women have been not permitted to get tattoos because if they did they would not be buried on Jewish grounds.
Am I right? If so, is it the identical for Russian Jewish?
I know of someone popular who is extremely into his religion but is also really tattooed.
What would happen to his entire body if he died?

That is really nonsense. Jews with tattoos can be buried in Jewish cemeteries. The victims of the Shoah had been forced to have their concentration camp numbers tattooed on their bodies, and it would be morally repulsive to refuse them burial.
