  • Nope. It's completely safe. Ink Molecules are too large to pass into breastmilk. The only risk is if you get an infection, so you need to make sure you go to a clean shop that uses enclaves and they open new needles in front of you etc. :)

    I have 2 tattoos I received while nursing, and will be getting a tattoo when this new baby is born. Since I child-led wean then the baby will still be nursing when I get it hehe. :)
