For quite a while I’ve wanted to get a tattoo. My mother has always been honest that tattoos are not to her taste - my half-brother, not her son, is a tattooist and has many so it has come up before. About a week ago I said to her that I was thinking of getting one and she threw a complete tantrum at me. She wouldn’t listen to a word I said and eventually I just let it slide and haven’t said anything since. I respect her opinions but do not share them - I feel that I am an adult and am responsible enough to make my own choices. She hasn’t expressly forbidden it but has been clear she would be very upset. Would getting a tattoo violate the commandment to honour one’s parents?
Note: This it not about the morality of tattoos themselves, that is a separate discussion and this is not the place for it.
