  • No! And no good, respectable clean artist will ink you while you are pregnant!

  • They usually say no because of the risk of disease, infection, and skin irritation.

  • No, I have heard you should not get a tattoo while pregnant. Just wait , what's the rush? It's not worth the worry.

  • Plus, most women are more bloated when pregnant than when not, so after you have baby, the picture wouldn't look right anyway.

    Depending on where you plan to get it, I would suggest waiting till after you're done having babies, and get to the weight you feel most comfortable with before getting a tat, but that's JMO.

  • No and they won't do it if you are pregnant anyway... You have to sign a waiver saying you aren't' as well... at least in this state.

  • NO! Absolutely not. Wait until after Baby is born. Please. It is so not worth the risk

  • I would seriously question your step mom's mentality. It is not safe to get one when you are pregnant. Keep in mind, to even give blood, you have to have had NO tattoos in the last year before donating since Hep B or C is a big risk (can't remember which one).

    also as PP states, no reputable tat artist will give you one if you are pregnant and it's not like you are going to easily hide it.

    I don't know. Your Stepmother wants you to get a tattoo? How classy. Not.
    I think tattoos are a waste of money and they look tacky and cheap and low casss.

  • I like to look tacky, cheap, and low class. People without tattoos look like uppity bitches.
