    Amy was Jewish. Someone over at SFGate commented that she cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery because of the tattoos. Is that true?

    Of course not. There would be a lot of Jews under age 40 forbidden burial then.

    Sounds extremely implausible.

    I don't know what happens in the communities in the exile, but at least here it's not an issue.

    Oh good. Is there anything in Judaism that has to do with tattoos?

    Just a cultural dislike since the Holocaust. I can't stand them myself.

    I was really hoping she'd get her shit together. I hope they release the album she's been working on posthumously.

    I bet they will release at least something...to make profit out of Amy's death.

    Still can't believe it. Well it was expected but still...it came totally out of the blue.

    Like everyone else here, it wasn't a surprise to hear, but still so sad.

    May her troubled soul at last be at peace.

    ^This! She was very talented, it's a shame she could not shake her demons.

    They profited from her talent when she was alive, why shouldn't they now that she's dead. If anybody had ever been concerned about her, they should have stopped working with her until she got on track but unfortunately no one is that unselfish.

    No, she can be buried, but the skin areas with the tattoos will be cut. They can not be buried. This is at least what is done in Israel.

    No, it is not just a cultural dislike since the Holocaust.
    The prohibition of tattooing is found in the Torah: "You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves: I am the Lord" (Leviticus 19:28).
    The Mishna/Talmud states that it is the lasting and permanent nature of tattooing which makes it a culpable act: "If a man wrote [on his skin] pricked-in writing, he is not culpable unless he writes it and pricks it in with ink or eye-paint or anything that leaves a lasting mark" (Mishnah Makkot 3:6).

    During the Holocaust, concentration camp prisoners (which were mostly Jewish) received tattoos only at one location, the Auschwitz concentration camp complex, which consisted of Auschwitz I (Main Camp), Auschwitz II (Auschwitz-Birkenau), and Auschwitz III (Monowitz and the subcamps). Incoming prisoners were assigned a camp serial number which was sewn to their prison uniforms. Only those prisoners selected for work were issued serial numbers; those prisoners sent directly to the gas chambers were not registered and received no tattoos.

    I actually kind of disagree with this. (Although I don't know Amy) But I wonder if perhaps giving her something productive to do, was really the only thing that perhaps COULD have saved her. Not to mention in the Entertainment industry, a good portion of people are probably using.
