While the actual, religious laws concerning tattooing in the Jewish religion are still open for debate, it is well understood that tattooing, in Judaism, is still considered quite scandalous and taboo for most.

That being said, you would imagine those rebellious, wild Semites who broke from tradition and chose to ink themselves would do so with some flair for the dramatic. Not so.

What follows is a list of the 5 most over-done Jewish tattoo trends. All are as trite and trife as a girl putting the Japanese symbol for strength on the area immediately above her bum.

Number 5: Chai: The Hebrew letter representing long life. Usually tattooed on the most unhealthy individuals.

Number 4: A Hebrew phrase for love. Anything popularized by Victoria Beckham & Britney Spears should be permanently banned for life.

Number 3: Pigs, bacon or anything relating to "kosher." We get it. Your ironic. Now, get over yourself. It is like someone tattooing "permanence" on themselves. If you want your tattoo to be a statement about tattooing...you are way too self-indulgent.

Number 2: Pictures of Israel: The Tel Aviv skyline is not nearly as distinctive as, say, New York. Consider getting a tattoo that doesn't require a topography map to decipher.

Number 1: A Jewish Star with some sort of silly embellishment, such as barbed wire, fire or an American flag motif.
