Yes, some Catholics do get tattoos, though the practice is frowned upon because of an article of Faith, to which all Catholics are required to adhere, called “The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus” (the same article that makes other Catholic institutions, like the Church of England, responsible for the treatment of children with terminal illnesses).
