Is it a bad thing that I got a tattoo while being pregnant?

I'm young, only 18, & didn't know I was pregnant until recently. I got a tattoo about a week ago & I'm hoping it doesn't affect my baby in any way. I'm only 3 weeks pregnant, but as a mother to be I'm already worried.

  • You should be fine, but you should go see your doctor and let him know.

  • I would inform your doctor. They may want to do an additional Hep screening on you before the baby is born as a precaution. This would follow even if you had gotten it shortly before getting pregnant AS the PP said watch for infection..
