  • if you're looking to get one, i'd call a reputable shope and ask wht they're policy is. they will tell you what they're allowed to do, or reccommend.

  • Honestly, I wouldnt get one while I was BF for the simple fact that your size is going to change and then your tat will be saggy long before it should be

  • Id have to agree with supermomof3kids. I would wait until youre done breastfeeding and your milk has dried up. The size of your breasts will change and could affect the look of the tattoo.
