Tattoos while preggo

I was thinking about getting one. Any one have any input? I am due in July and don't really want to wait that long. Plus I will be nursing so I don't know what would be better.

Re: Tattoos while preggo

I asked about this while pregnant with DD (I was going to get one for my 30th birthday, but ended up being pregnant at the time) at several tattoo places....no one I talked to would tattoo a pregnant woman.

You may be out of luck.

I wouldn't while I was pregnant but I'd feel comfortable after while bfing.

They won't tattoo a pregnant women at any tattoo shop. I really don't think it's worth the risk in my opinion.

(super tattooed here) Any reputable tattoo artist will not, under any circumstance, tattoo a pregnant mama...even if it's tiny. It can cause spontaneous miscarriage. Not to mention the risk of infection, contraction of disease, etc.

I know it sucks, I go crazy not getting tatooed while prego too, but you shouldn't do it.

You'll have the tattoo for the rest of your life, so waiting a few more months or even a year doesn't seem like a big deal to me - the risk ain't worth the reward.

I want to get mine touched up but won't do it while preg or BFing so I've been waiting 2 yrs so far and it'll prolly be over another year before I can consider it. I would wait!

A tattoo isn't worth putting your child at risk for infection. You've lived your whole life without it. What's a few more months?

My DH's tattoo artist refused to start working in me while pregnant. He said to stay away from any artist who would. Better to be safe than sorry, IMO.
