no, you can not. Karma is not part of any voodoo religion. it is
the assumption that in the next life you will experience reward and
punishment for your actions. but not the books you read, paintings
you create, things you say or body art you sport.
but i wouldn't recommend the tattoo, personally.
If YOU think you will get bad karma from something I recommend you
do not do it. Even if it is nothing but superstition the effect
that it could have on you would be to give you something to blame
all of your bad luck on and make you forget all the good things
that happen every day. I don't personally believe that it would
cause any bad karma but then again I only do the tattoo...I don't
have to live with YOUR consequences.
I do not believe in "karma" so to speak, but i do believe that by
placing such a thing on your body or even in your home can open
doors not easily shut.
Karma is part of Hinduism and Buddhism, not Taoism. Taoism has no
concept of reincarnation, so karma in the classic sense is
meaningless; and to the extent that taoism shares a notion of
'actions having results', those results are part of Tao and do not
adhere to individuals in the form of 'goodness' or 'badness'.
