How has yours changed? I have a relatively big side piece and I wonder how it may change when I get pregnant

I have both sides done. Are you small or curvy. If you have even minor small curves they should not change that much. But let me known if your small and I'll let you know what to do

I have two lower stomach/hip tattoos, and they look great after delivering a ten pound baby seven weeks ago. I got them over my old stretch marks and they still did ok.

I have one on my right side rib cage and it seems okay, a cpl of the lines seem a tiny bit stretched but its not very noticeable, i have one on my lower stomach near my hip bone and its ruined, my daughters pregnancy totally put a bagillian stretch marks thru it.

Thankfully, my tattoo's are all in places taht pregnancy hasn't affected.  I know a handful of people that wasn't so lucky...but they are fixable after with a good tattoo artist.  Even when scar tissue is stretched, you can still get a descent cover-up that your happy with.  I only know of one person that got a cover-up over their stretched tattoo (it was on her belly button...and she did get pretty big during her pregnancy), but it looked AMAZING after she got it fixed.  It really didn't look bad before, it kinda looked like the color faded, almost like she had it for 8 years or so without getting it touched up, and it didn't look as perfect as before, like the lining and such...but it wasn't ugly or anything, but it bothered her and after she covered it up, you couldn't tell there was a stretched tat under it at all :)  So don't worry too much....worry about that later :)
