Our beloved Prophet Muhammad ( may peace and blessings be upon him ) ruled tattoos to be impermissible.
This is because it involves changing the creation of Allah, and because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) cursed the one who does tattoos and the one for whom that is done.

‘Abd-Allah ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “May Allah curse the women who do tattoos and those for whom tattoos are done, those who pluck their eyebrows and those who file their teeth for the purpose of beautification and alter the creation of Allah.
Al-Bukhari,5587- Muslim, 5538)
