  • The problem with tatoos while pregnant is that you are at a higher risk of infection when you are pregnant. Also the ink can get into your blood stream an effect the baby. It will probably be OK since you are not very far along. There are some people that think its OK to tatoo while pregnant/breastfeeding, most people will tell you no deal. Your skin also reacts differently so your skin may not take the ink as well so you may have to have it redone when you have the baby. Congrats on your pregnancy!

  • Imo I think you were too early for it to effect anything.

  • I got my first tattoo and found out the next week that I was pregnant. I wouldn't worry. Just let your doctor know your concerns.
