5. Any Tattoos
Any tattoos, permanent tattoos are actually forbidden among Sunni Muslims. As many believe that tattooing changes God’s creation and is, therefore, a sin. In May 2015
Iran’s religious authorities banned tattoos along with spiky haircuts, plucking eyebrows and using Sunbeds. Despite its illegal status tattoos are becoming increasingly popular among young Iranian people.
4. Visible Tattoos
In Japan, tattoos were first made illegal in the Meiji period in 1872. There is still a huge social stigma against body art in the country because of the common association of tattoos with criminal gangs in Japan. They are often banned in public swimming pools, bathhouses, gyms, and even some hotels also. It is not uncommon for restaurants and shops to turn away customers with visible tattoos.
3. Specific Areas On The Skin
Like most places, Denmark will allow you to get inked up at the age of eighteen. However, a 1966 ban made it illegal to tattoo the hands, neck or head in the US. On the other hand, Oklahoma was the last US state to hold on to its tattoo ban. For example, it is illegal to get a tattoo within an inch of your eye socket in Georgia.
The swastika is originally a Hindu symbol and a Sanskrit word. Because of anything from the darker periods of Germany’s history. This can irritate or anger a modern German because of that there are specific laws in European countries such as Germany, France, and Slovakia prohibiting the display or public use of Nazi symbols in particular. Tattoos blacks uniforms and forms of greeting these laws. However, do not apply in Britain which is why Prince Harry wasn’t breaking the law with his Nazi fancy dress outfit in 2005.
Several countries in South and Southeast Asia are very sensitive about religious tattoos. And consider them to be highly disrespectful to the religion. In 2012 Malaysian authorities banned Erykah Badu from performing in Malaysia because of the Arabic word for Allah on her shoulders. Which is an insult to Islam and a very serious offense? Thailand authorities, on the other hand, are threatening to crack down on tourists getting tattoos of religious symbols. Calling it an alarming trend that is culturally inappropriate and offensive.
