Anyone ever get a tattoo while they were pregnant? If so how far a long were you? Did it affect the baby at all?

Any reputable artist will not tattoo you while pregnant.

If you found one that would, I would seriously doubt he quality of his work.

No. Anyone with a license and common sense won't touch you if you're pregnant.

If you get an infection, guess who else gets it? Baby.
The risks aren't worth not waiting a few months.

HELL TO THE FUCK NO.

Fuck worrying about infection!!!!! Your body's reaction to the tattoo, the adrenaline rush, increased heart rate, etc, could KILL a fetus/embryo.

And NO tattoo artist who is GOOD will touch a prego.

And if you lie, you're selfish.

I did by accident, I didn't know I was pregnant yet. I was only about 4 weeks along.. anyway, I lost that baby to miscarriage bout 8 weeks later. Not sayen that was why but I can't say the baby was born healthy..

Anyway like pp have said, no licensed reputable place will knowingly tattoo a pregnant woman, its a huge risk with infection, and the infection being spread to the baby. It's just not worth it ! Just wait !

Most tattoo artist won't and if you find one that will, you probably don't want to see them... It's not a good idea
