I have tattoos from the days when I lived in jaliliyah. The images are pagan in nature.

Should I leave them in place?
Should I go and get them blackened over?
Any other thoughts?

i've heard it's expensive, but you can get them removed???

If it was me... this is not a fatwa... if the tatoos were pagan... i would get rid of them.

I feel like I just read something about this.. hmm or did we have this question before? I can't remember exactly but I believe there were different views about this. Best to ask a trusted scholar to discuss it with you.

This was asked before on the old board I believe.

If you can afford to do it, get them removed, if you can't you dont have to. But definitely ask an imam.

As a bit of personal advice and having seen awful tatoos, I wouldn't advise getting it covered over with something else unless your sure the result won't be bigger and hideous. Your body after all, you're the one faced with it every day (but I guess that must be one lesson you've already worked out for yourself).
