Is getting a tattoo haram?
There is a consensus among the various schools of Islamic jurisprudence that tattooing is forbidden in Islam.

I advise people not to get tattoos as it may result in you being named a disbeliever and hypocrite. It still counts as a tattoo if you get Allah’S name. Do not take this advise offensive.
