Salaamu alaikum

I know the subject of tattoos has been discussed on here many times before, but I can not find any clear, concise information. Just a lot of opinions and discussion on why someone would want a tattoo in the first place.

I would like clarification if they are haram or not. If they aren't, is it haram to tattoo suras from the Qur'an or suras in calligraphy that have the name of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì or the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)?

I am looking for links to suras from the Qur'an or hadiths that say tattooing is haram. Does anyone have a ruling from Ayatollah Sistani?

Thank you in advance to anyone who posts links or can direct me in the way of fatwas.

Salaamu alaikum and thank you for posting that link. It is very helpful. I'm still trying to figure out if suras from the Qur'an would be haram. Any insight???
