No JavaScript code...

You must disable the underline at the link tag, otherwise it will be active in the tooltip.

We chose to place the image in the top left with the property float: left. This is an example, you can change or remove this property according to your needs.

In terms of SEO, we do not recommend putting the information essential to a product in a tooltip. The information which should be provided is that which helps the user to use the site.
