Cast those myths aside. The belief that Jews with tattoos cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery is entirely myth. A tattoo doesn’t prohibit you from being buried with your families or from participating in all synagogue rituals. On that note, think ink! Whether you’re looking for symbolism or meaningless geometric shapes, black line shading or a full-on watercolor, or even a cheesy hebrew phrase (we won't judge, though your Israeli friends will make fun of you indefinitely), these tattoo parlors have got the best Israeli artists in town.
