Hi my name's Crystal and I just became a new mommy a few days ago to a beautiful little girl.

I've been wanting to get a tattoo of her name on me, but obviously couldn't do it during pregnancy.

I'm breastfeeding, and was wondering if the whole tattoo idea is a bad one?

If anyone knows whether or not I can do this, please let me know! Thank you (:

It's safe to get tattoos while breastfeeding. The ink molecules are too big to pass into your milk:-)

Congratulations on your new daughter!

I would suggest you wait until you are done breastfeeding to get your tattoo.  In fact, I don't know any artist who will do it while you are breastfeeding due to the risk of infection, etc. and passing it on to your baby.

Do not get a tattoo while breastfeeding. IF it were to get infected, the infection could become a concern. I would wait until you are done breastfeeding, but that is just my opinion.

My tattoo guy won't tattoo you if you are pregnant or breast feeding; he asks. He just says he would much rather be on the safer side, than risk hurting your baby. Some tattoo guys don't even ask though, but I'd rather wait and be on the safe side.

Congratulations!! There's always a risk when u get a tattoo whether its from a dirty needle or they don't sanitize correctly. Plus where are you thinking of putting it? You want to be relaxed while you nurse and it might be painful if your thinking your ribs or shoulder. I would honestly wait until your done nursing, you don't want to risk it because your still sharing your body with your baby. Plus your hormones could affect the way the ink settles into your skin. Don't get me wrong I love tattoos, I have a lot but I personally would hold off!

Congrats on your new bundle of Joy!!! I would suggest that you wait, If it gets infected it could harm you and your baby remember this precious baby needs you healthy and there for her. =D I would suggest that you also google the question it gives you alot of feedback.
