so dh and I have been ttc since last July. no big deal. so before we go do anything, like drink or get a piercing or tattoo I take a pregnancy test. got a "constellation" piercing which is where the piercier looks at the anatomy of your ear and finds what piercings look best and I got a tattoo on the back of my neck a couple days later. so I took a test before the piercing and there wasnt even a faint line, it was just a negative. Now I had an OB appointment yesterday and the nurse did a pregnancy test, they always do and it came up positive. immediately the ob did an ultrasound and I'm around 7 weeks....how didn't it show up last week? I even showed her the picture of the test I sent dh before my piercing appointment....

I'm so confused...my skin gets really dry when I'm pregnant...I really hope my tattoo doesn't get screwy, I already got it in a dried henna color (which looks pretty close to my freckles)so if it gets messed up it'll just completely fall out and lines will be missing.

I don’t test positive until I’m at least 6 weeks pregnant. If I test at 5 weeks it shows as negative. I’m not sure what your tattoo artist told you about the aftercare but with mine they said to put vitamin e oil on it. Maybe that can help prevent it from getting too dry

my skin reacts badly to anything other than Aveeno for at least 6 months after I get a tattoo. also, I can test at 4 weeks and it shows up usually.

It will be absolutely fine.  Hell I got a tattoo at 6mo's pregnant it was not an issue.

Well, worse case scenario, could they just fix your tattoo after the pregnancy if some parts are missing?

they could but I'll be really uncomfortable and want to hide it. im really picky about how my tattoos look and if pieces fall out I kinda just wanna hide so people cant see it. and I wanna feel pretty this pregnancy, a faded fallen out tattoo will kinda just kill that.

I'm the same way with my hair too oddly enough, if it's not the way I like it I will get depressed for lack of a better word and not want to go out and do anything. it's issues with body dysmorphia.

You could always abort so your tattoo doesn’t get messed up🙄
