Temporary tatoos


Salam Alaikum wa rahmutullah Is temporary tatoos allowed and does it affect wudhu or ablution? I went on sayed sistani a websit and said tatoos whether temporary or permanent do not affect wudhu or ghusl. Please reconfirm and rectify. Thanks


Waalykum salam 

For your query I called the office of Sayyid sistani and they said: if the temporary Tattoo causes a pigment on your skin then it is not permissible otherwise it s ok

Kind regards,
