  • I wouldn't do it, because there is a risk of infection or allergy to the ink. It's just not worth the risk.

  • Most tattoo shops won't let you while your prego so that means probably some kind of harm.

  • I dont think most tatoo parlors allow it, I'd wait because you never know if it can harm your baby.

  • well, idk, i thought that something that shouldnt be done while pregnant and i never heard of anyone actually doing it. Im assuming if its harmful for the baby and what ive heard is true then it seems to me the mother should wait and be on the safe side. But since im not the parent i really have no say either.

  • I wouldn't do it on the belly but otherwise why should it matter?

  • I'm too chicken-crap to get one period.  I definitely wouldn't get one while I am pregnant.  I don't think about other women getting tattoos while they are pregnant at all.  It's not my body, don't really care, lol.

  • I didn't even know that was allowed. I don't think it's a good idea.
