    Is it true that women with the popular lower back tattoos can't get an epideral when they are pregnant because of where the tatto is? I am thinking about getting a tattoo there and I needed to know if this is true. If it is true, I want to know a good place on my back to get a tattoo. I don't want it on my upper back.

    that makes sense, if they have to put the epidural needle through a tat, that would probably introduce some of the ink into the cerebral spinal fluid, which is definantly bad news.

    not true. Unless it is a FRESH tattoo,Like done THE DAY before... and most tattoo artists won't tattoo a pregnant woman, the ink will NOT infiltrate an epidural. they do it by feel and not by what they see on the skin. When placing the epi they feel for a spot beween the vertabrae to introduce the needle. a tattoo will NOT screw up your chances of getting an Epi. and if it does for some reason.. you cna always get a pudendal anesthetic that will reduce the feeling and pain involved.
