Islamic tradition regards tattoos as haram. However, tattoos are not a complete ban. Depending on the location, they can be halal or haram, or both. Islamic halal tattoos must conform to strict Islamic standards, which may differ from one individual to another. Some tattoos, known as henna, are permitted, while others are forbidden. Here are some guidelines to consider before getting a tattoo.
Firstly, Islam prohibits tattoos. It considers tattooing as a major sin. Tattoos are not halal according to the Sunni school of Islam. According to this school, tattooing is akin to imitating non-believers. In addition to tattoos, women and men who get them are cursed. According to this interpretation, this practice differs among different sects of Islam.
The halal status of Forex Tattoos has also led to a booming business for artists. Many tattoo studios have seen their customer lists explode since the fatwa was issued. Simo Tattoo Studio, a popular Cairo tattoo shop, has experienced a 50 percent boost in clients since the halal certification became official. Rowayda Imam, who started tattooing three years ago, now sees at least four customers a day. The freelance tattoo artist Dalia Badr has been getting more orders from people from other cities around Egypt.
