Can rabbis have tattoos
Can you be buried in a Jewish cemetery if you have a tattoo?
Gesher Hachayim , Volume 1, Chapter 25, Paragraphs 1-2, says:
A famous [word that I do not recognize] that has separated itself from the ways of Judaism and removed from itself the entire yoke of the law of the Jews: There is none Avelus (Grief) for him ... but you have to bury him and work towards his funeral and dress him for it ...
But the city dwellers or Chevra Kadisha (Funeral Society) can prevent the Jewish burial of a known sinner in order to “close the sin gap”.
I doubt that one Chevra Kadisha would now refuse to deal with someone who was tattooed. (But see comments on the answer.)
