Question:

Can a person with tattoos go on a Hajj or Umrah?

Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Although the person should attempt to get the tattoos removed, it should not prevent someone from fulfilling the obligation of Hajj.

Once Hajj becomes obligatory and one has the means of fulfilling it, it should to be performed even if one has tattoos etc., just as one would need to perform salah with tatoos.

Only Allah knows best.
