1 - Why did the Germans do it if the plan from the very beginning was to deport all Jews? (This implies that the Jews were no longer people. Besides, we don't even tattoo people on death row.)
2 - Is it fake or is it real?
3 - What evidence is there in support of this argument and what evidence is there against it?
My friend and I would be grateful for any answers with documents provided.
P.S. - If this has already been answered, I would apologize for posting another topic on this and would like to receive a link to that topic.

This doesn't imply that they were no longer people. This implies that they were no longer wanted in Germany and the rest of Europe.
The aim of the tattoos was to avoid identity thefts and administer properly numerous forced laborers.
Here is a three part article by Carlos W. Porter that might shed some light on the subject for you:
SHOW ME OR DRAW ME A
NAZI “TATTOOING MACHINE”
(with documentary appendices)
BY CARLOS W. PORTER
Here is a thread started by Callahan:
What about the tattoos?
The first thing to understand is that it was only done at Auschwitz as far as I know. Even then not every inmate had a tatt done and that starts the questions running.
There are plenty of strange stories about tattoos done there and faked afterwards as a means to join the club and perhaps ensure compensation. CW Porter does an amazing job on this subject of tattoos.
In the end it's interesting but doesn't count much except when one looks at people like Elie Wiesel who clearly never had one and the lunatic Kitty Hart-Moxon who claims she had one, then after the war had it removed and pickled, so she would be able to decorate her lounge with it and show it off to all and sundry at cocktail parties.
Oh by the way here is what were recently claimed as the blocks used to tattoo people at Auschwitz.
'We don't need evidence, we have survivors' - israeli politician
From a logical perspective there's nothing sinister about it at all. In fact, claiming to fraud it as such is an admission of a very weak case.
I just saved more Jew's than Oskar Schindler allegedly ever did!
