  • I personally would wait until after the baby weened from breastfeeding. Just to not take any chances.

  • Sure. Don't see why not.

    The only thing is the risk of contracting diseases from the needles.... but they all use new sterile instruments... so....

    I just got a new 2 wks ago.

  • I never got one while bf, but I did get one at 5 weeks with my son but I didn't know I was pregnant. I'd wait till the baby weaned. Because if you really want this tattoo, then what's a few months to a year :)
