# 2722 Question Mark II
Q. Re- questions on tattoos,(2707 - 2708). Thanks so much for the information. A ger who had tattoos done in his early days before he converted, does he have to remove them now that he became Jewish? The same would apply to a baal teshuva? Is it better to remove them?

A. Minchas Chinuch (35) maintains that it is improper to maintain the tattoos as one transgresses on the prohibition of "following the ways of the nations."
Yesodei Yeshurun (39 Melochos) debates whether one who has a tattoo and does not remove it, may constantly transgress on the prohibition of kesubas k'aka'a.
Horav Shlomo Miller's Shlit'a opinion is that he is not obliged to remove them.

Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit'a and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit'a
