h__lo ive just started developing strechmarks on my lower belly im 38 weeks pregnant and got 5 strechmarks so ive done well but i have a tatoo on my belly and one strechmark is over it..i was just wondering if this will ruin my tatoo or will it go back to normal?

you are lucky to only have five strchmarks with my first i was covered in them they finally started to fade and ops i am pregnant again

I have heard that if you tell them to do laser treatement within days of birth, it will make a drastic difference. It is supposed to fade them nearly away! But I don't know how much that costs, and I don't know anyone personally that has done this.

I think the strech marks will ruin the tattoo sorry :( I know that they strech and dont really go back normal but its different for everyone so yours might stay the same just a waiting game. I didnt get any on my stomach for that reason.

I know strivectin works well for stretch marks but is very expensive. I used it for my first pregnancy and you can also get laser surgery which is also pricey. You might have to get your tatoo recolored

Mandi, it is not advised to get tattoos while pregnant. I would wait if I were you!

thanks!i have never read anything about tatoo's and pregnancy do you know of any web site?i already have the tatoo it just needs to be recolored.

I would do a Google search with something like "tattoos during pregnancy", or "tattoos" "pregnancy"... you'll probably get a ton of hits. Even the recoloring involves needles, so I would say it's not the best idea. I have one on my foot, too, that needs recoloring, but - for one, I've gotten scared of needles since my 2nd tattoo hurt so bad. And for 2, if I do it, it will be after the baby comes. Good luck!

If it only streched it would. But a strechmark is much like a scar and most like you will have to have it redone.
