The other person tattooed his body without consulting me. Is this grounds for divorce?

The fact that your partner has tattoos on their body without consulting you is not grounds for divorce.
This is because our civil law stipulates the grounds for divorce in court as follows, and tattoos do not fall under this provision.

However, for example, if you promised each other never to get tattoos before getting married,
If you do not follow this and get a tattoo, discord between couples will occur, and to resolve this conflict,
Without making any effort, the conflict escalates, leading to assault, running away from home, or separation.

In the end, if we assume that the marriage relationship has broken down to the point where it is difficult to recover,
Since it falls under Article 840, Paragraph 6 of the Civil Act, it may be grounds for divorce.
In these cases, it is not easy to prove the breakdown of marriage, so It is necessary to diagnose the situation by consulting with an expert regarding the specific facts.

This is a procedure in accordance with Korean law. For foreigners, detailed procedures may vary.
Please chat or email for specific details.
