Center of charge in quadrupol tensor

In theoretical classical electrodynamics we defined the quadrupol tensor of $n$ charges $q_k$ at positions (from origin or center of charge, see below) $\vec r_k$ like so: $$Q_{ij} = \sum_{k=1}^n q_k \left( 3 r_{ki} r_{kj} - r_k^2 \delta_{ij} \right)$$

I assumed that the $\vec r_k$ should be from the center of charge, so that the quadrupol tensor is translation invariant, which would seem logical to me. Out tutor said that we should just use the origin of our coordinate system. That would make the quadrupol tensor translation variant, which does not make sense to me.

Is $\vec r_k$ from the center of charge or from the coordinate origin?
