Is it a Must to Remove a Tattoo after Repenting From It? – Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

Question: A person got a tattoo then repented from it. Is it a  must to remove it?

Answer: ” If removing it can be obtained without harm, then he removes it. If removing it causes harm and it cannot be obtained except by harm, then he seeks Allah’s forgiveness and does not perform something that will bring a new harm”.

[Sharh Tirmidhi no.302]
