The Mishnah in Parah 8:2 teaches that if the mey chatat (parah adumah water) gets poured on someone's shoes or clothes, that water is not fit to be used for the parah adumah anymore. However, if it gets poured onto one's skin, it is fit to be used. My question is what if someone has a tattoo and the parah adumah water gets poured on that. Is that considered skin or clothing?

  • And why might it be considered that? It's very clearly skin and not cloth.

  • How about a sun tan? Is that something you still consider regular skin?

    @sabbahillel It's clearly like neither since it's not on the skin but under it.
