Is it permissible to get a tattoo? If not, is there any Hadith which clearly states that tattooing is haram?


Tattooing is not permissible in Islam. (Radul-Muhtar, vol.6 pg.373)

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded a Hadith in his Sahih on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhuma) and Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (radiyallahu’anhu) that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) cursed the tattooist and the one who gets himself/herself tattooed. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5937, 4886, 5943)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
