It is specifically stated in the Torah, though - as frequently the case - doesn't explain WHY....

�You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord� (Leviticus 19:28)

Commentaries list a variety of reasons:
Tattoos were used to mark slaves.
We don't have the rights to our physical body, nor to "destroy" it.
Idol worshipers used tattoos to mark themselves.

Lisa Low Carb Ed, I forgot to mention that I think the analogy was a really good one, and that I appreciate your sensitivity.
