Tattooing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

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

Answer

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)
