Applying temporary tattoos

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to apply semi-permanent tattoos on your body? They usually last for only 8-18 day’s.


A: It is not permissible. The Hadith has cursed the one who involves himself in this. Hence, on account of the prohibition one should totally refrain from this.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
