  • Did she know she was pregnant when she went in for the tattoo?

  • Hmmm? I would think it is somewhat bad...idk bc the ink does go under the skin. She will probably b alright bc there are woman that do drugs and smoke while pregnant so alittle ink shouldn't do too much damage I hope not for the baby's sake. GL

  • No, it is not bad for her or the unborn child. Yes, it is bad for you as a so called friend to question her actions.

  • I feel the need to add that it is not bad or unsafe as long as the artist uses properly sterilized utensils for the tat! But then again this is standard for ALL tats under ANY circumstance!

  • I got a tattoo when I was pregnant not knowing of course, it was at a clean safe place and I know they used clean needles... as long as she got her tattoo at a clean, safe place her baby will be fine. They sugguest you don't get tattoos during pregnancy due to the risk of hepititis.

  • I was told by my tattoo artist that it's not good... They said they won't tattoo anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding... Every place is different tho... Some will do it, and some don't... They don't want to risk anything...

  • if you ask a tattoo artist or your doctor they will tell you absolutely do not get any tattoos while pregnant. so yes i would assume it is bad.
