Jewish Skin Rip Tattoo

In NY where I grew up, where it was common to see older Jewish men and women with the numbers tattooed on their arms from the concentration camps where they had been incarcerated. These survivors inspire me with their perseverance, will to live, and their ability not only to assimilate but to thrive in a new culture after being subjected to such unthinkable evil.

Ok. This Hamsa/Star of David tattoo is an oxymoron because Jews are not allowed to have tattoos. But setting that aside, what a beautiful tattoo!

    That is just a myth

    Read cover story of Summer 2014 issue of Reform Judaism magazine -- Jews not being allowed to have tattoos is old wives tale, not religious doctrine.

The creator of Off-Broadway hit Old Jews Telling Jokes is sporting a new, baseball-sized tattoo featuring the pastrami-sandwich-shaped logo of his show.

My back tattoo represent the Jews :)
