  • LLL suggest not getting tattooed while nursing though there in no proof that any harm can come to the baby. Infection leading to necessary antibiotics could be an issue.

  • No to the tattoo while breastfeeding... Infection could cross over!
    I think you could get your hair dyed, I've never been asked at a salon if im bfing so im guessing it isnt a concern

  • My midwife says no issue with dyeing while pregnant or nursing as long as you can handle the smell. As for the tattoos or piercings I wouldn't due to possible infection issues and also your hormones can make you bleed more then normal which could be a problem.

  • you can dye your hair even when prego..i had my dr's permission, she said just wait until after the first 12 weeks to be on the safe side, and as far as the rest i am unsure. i would ask your dr. good luck

  • Ink is more prone to infection than piercing... Yes you can dye your hair, Yes you can pierce, and Yes you can ink- but the risk of infection (which *can* cross over, and possible antibiotic treatments which can be harmful) is the only thing to be concerned about. Personally, I got ink and pierced while nursing, no infection. So long as you get it done professionally, it should be fine.
