I have wanted to get this tattoo since I was 16 and was gonna get it for my 18th birthday but my mom asked me to wait until I was out of her house so I did. I was gonna get it for my 19th birthday but I was pregnant with my son. I was gonna get it done for my 20th birthday but I was pregnant again. I'm wondering if there's a reason why people say pregnant people can't get tattooed and is it a rule or just opinion?
I'm planning on getting it on my lower leg, right above my ankle. I don't swell there so maybe it won't stretch?

The risk of infection is high with tattoos. I have three. My third one got badly infected and I've never had any more work done since it was awful!!
One of the other reasons is the risk of Hepatitis is high with getting tattoos, and yet another reason that I have heard is... the extra stress that it causes on our body can start pre-term labor. I'm not sure how true that is though since I read that here on cafe mom.
