  • The only thing you are putting at risk is if the needles are contaminated.

    I plan on getting started on my half sleeve after the baby is born. not immediately after just because thats not when i want to do it but i plan on breastfeeding for about a year and i want to get started before that.

    yes its fine.

  • I wouldn't pierce my nipples! lol But it's safe as long as the piercing and tattoo parlor is hygenic.
