May I ask what is the source of this?

Surely for woman there is a Hadith that they should not make blue marks on their bodys. (Godna, i.e. small drills with the needles and then filling colour) which is exactly like tattos.

I would say that there is no specific with Hadith because no men were doing this. I understand there is no specific Hadith for men but we have to conclude that if it is not permitted for women then it is twice not permitted for men.
