Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Tattooing in itself is prohibited even though the image is a religious one.

Rasulullah (S.A.W.) said, “Allah curses the one who performs the act of tattooing and the one who seeks tattooing. This was a common practice during the time of Jaahiliyyah (pre- Islamic era).

And Allah knows best

Wassalam
