QUESTION:

Is tattooing haram? If yes, please provide the reasons according to any
mujtahid. 


ANSWER:

Salaamun 'alaykum,

First of all, please accept my apologies for the delayed response. This was
caused by a heavy workload.

I have not seen a fatwa which explicitly prohibits tattooing. However, one
has to be careful what picture or image will be tatooed. Anything which is
immoral or with sexual connotations will, of course be haram. Similarly, it
has to be remembered that praying with clothes which have images on them is
makruh. One could possibly extend this ruling to cover tattoos also. My
personal advice would be not to undertake this practice which has no Islamic
basis.


May Allah (SWT) guide us all.

Yours in Islam

L. Takim
