I am 26 weeks pregnant, and I was wondering if getting a tattoo is safe or not?

It's not really worth the risk, plus your body might react differently to the ink (reject it), most tattoo artists will not tattoo you well your pregnant, I'd say just wait it out and when this is all over, reward yourself with some new ink :)

I got a tattoo on my b___st when I was 4 months pregnant!!! And I had no problems with it!! You should just ask your doctor there thoughts on the idea when you next go!!! Good luck :)

Samantha - I got my tattoo before I was pregnant and I wish I never got it now that I have young kids. I am currently expecting my third child.. my other two - 4 1/2 and 2 always talk about my tattoo and can't wait until they get older to have one of their own. I guess you just have to figure out how you want to raise your kids and is it okay for them to get one at some point in their lives (hopefully later than 20). Also, remember kids tell everything to everyone. Mine is a location that nobody can see.. yet my 4 1/2 year old announces it to everyone she sees that has a tattoo.. kind of funny, but also depending on the person she is telling.. very embarra__sing. Just something to think about. good luck.

Sorry if I gave false info, in my preggo book it says not to get a tattoo and that most places won't tattoo you, but it appears as though that's been proven wrong, anyways just wanted to say sorry.

I thought it wasn't recommeneded because the risk of infection is high.

i've heard that you're not even supposed to donate blood up to a year after getting a tattoo....why would it be safe to get one during pregnancy??
