How to turn off Ripple Animation on Tabs [Android]?

How do I turn Off Ripple Animation only for the Tabs ? I have tried to change this in the Config File

activator = "highlight"

But that sets highlight to all buttons.

I want to turn off Ripple Animation just for Tabs ?

I found a Hacky Solution

ion-tabs .button-effect {
 display:none !important;

Looks like the button-effect is what “draws” the Ripple. So I just disabled the effect for all children of ion-tabs

I wrote that css in my variables.scss

EDIT 1: Nope. This too sets the .button-effect class to display:none globally. My Question was to set it only for a single ion-tab element.
