Technically, it would be simple to rearrange a human's genome to make their embryonic cells differentiate into a permanent tail.

Would I want one? Not really...

We don't live in an environment that makes a tail useful. The Na'vi have it because it alters their center of gravity and allows for better balance control when climbing.

Basically, it would only serve to be something that might get caught in a door if you weren't careful.
It still contributes to balance, and you can do all sorts of things with it that maybe aren't practical, but still both impressive and fun :)

As for control, there are some muscles there that still exist, but modification would need to include connection of the nervous system to it as well.

I made me a tail for my costume, but I must say shopping is really heavy with it.......
You don't ramember that you have a tail so you permanently knock over anything is the shop.....  ;D ;D ;D
Die Himmelsmenschen haben uns eine Botschaft gesandt, dass sie sich alles nehmen können was sie wollen und dass niemand sie aufhalten kann. Aber wir schicken ihnen auch eine Botschaft; fliegt so schnell wie euch der Wind nur tragen kann; ruft die anderen Clans herbei. Sagt ihnen Toruk'makto ruft sie zu sich. Ihr fliegt jetzt mit mir. Meine Brüder, Schwestern und dann zeigen wir den Himmelsmenschen, dass sie sich nicht alles nehmen können was sie wollen und dass dies unser Land ist.
