    I got a new tattoo on the back of my neck last weekend.
    It's the word 'chai' (pronounced with an H) which is the Hebrew symbol of life and eternal living.

    It has a lot of meaning to me.
    Israelis wear it as a charm usually around their neck. Thus my desire for placing it on the back of my neck.

    It's about the size of a quarter and solid black. It's centered on the back of my neck bellow my hair line.

    Here's a pic I just took with my cellphone in the bathroom of THE BACK OF MY NECK. So yes, it's crooked and looks funny from that angle.
    It's the best I can do until I can get someone to take a better pic.

    Yeah, except it's not allowed in the culture/religion :o
    1/2 of my family is Israeli, and most live in Israel. I wonder what they'll think :noes:

    yes and no. I'm christian, which techinically goes back to Hebrew days. some agree, some disagree with it.

    I'm technically christian too (baptized in Jerusalem when I was 9, although I don't attend church or read the bible). My family is Russian/Israeli. I lived in Israel for 3 years. The 'elders' look down on tattoos in general. Obviously in modern society it's being more accepted...

    It has to do with 2 things.
    1. The holocaust (the Nazis tattooed #'s on the wrists and forearms of Jews) <--- at first I wanted 'Chai' tattooed on the inside of my wrist, but then decided againt it since it's too visible.
    2. Leviticus 19:28, states: “You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.”

    This is the one scripture quoted. And yes I agree don't do it as a sacrifice/offering for the dead, which was one of many customs then. But I haven't got any of mine as an offering for the dead, all of mine are for myself, and myself only. I love getting questions on my hebrew tattoo, it means Gd almighty. it's a great conversation generator.

    There were a few other scriptures that speak about that stuff, but I don't have the time to look right now :o

    I believe every tattoo is a great conversation generator :wavey:

    Off the top of my head that is the one scripture quoted which mentions it directly.

    Here's another- piercing is viewed as bad as well to most religious types. Jews had there noses pierced as slaves as a symbol they were a slave. carry it forward and it can have slot of meaning as a piercing.
