Performing Umrah While Tattooed
Performing Umrah with a tattoo on the body is permissible. If the tattoo is of an inanimate object than it is not necessary that it be covered. If however the tattoo is of an animate object, it will be advisable to cover it up with a bandage. Should anyone raise any objections to your actions, explain your situation to them and tell them that you consulted the Ulamaa and this is what they recommend.
