  • I've yet to see a definitive answer on the safety. It really depends on the studio and its sterility. Some artists will refuse to touch you.

    You can always look at it this way. A tattoo lasts forever. What's the worst that can happen if you end up waiting? You'll change your mind? **smile** If that happens, better that it does BEFORE you get inked rather than after!

  • You might want to hold off. Nursing hormones can be wacky like pregnancy hormones. You might not hold the ink right. You could definitely bleed more. Nursing hormones can make you more sensitive to pain as well. You'll have a better result if you wait.
