I was wondering if it's a violation to ask for a tip from a client through direct paypal account. 

Or does Upwork have its own tipping option?

Upwork has a bonus payment option.

 

All payments for clients you engaged through Upwork have to go through Upwork.

A client is allowed to pay a freelancer a bonus.

 

It is inappropriate and unprofessional for a freelancer to ask for a tip.

If you have asked a client for a tip through paypal, you have done 2 things wrong, one of those could potentially get your profile suspended.
