Can Jehovah Witnesses have tattoos?

Yes, JW can get a tattoo, but it's very much discouraged, and you might get in trouble for it anyway. This is one of those situations where Jehovah's Witnesses try to impose their own rules on their peers even though they can't actually find them in the Bible. Tattoos are a 'worldly' thing.
