are u allowed to write something on your hand to remember it?
Sara Palin seems to be the only one who is not allowed to do that.
As long as it is not permanent like a tatoo or done for reasons related to avoda zora, why not?
yes you need both scratching into the skin and filling it with ink- one with out the other is mutar
Even the scratching into the skin is assur, if done as a mourning practice like the Akum. What is the expression, “lo tisgodidu?” We are not to make sratim in the skin, because the avoda zara-niks did that.
According to many teachers/ professors, writing on hands is a no-no.
