TAT Tattoo's and pregnancy.

    So, I had plans for some new ink... then I found out that I was pregnant. My obgyn said no more tattoo's while I am preggers, but that got me wondering. So, I have been researching various websites and most of them say it's a no no. But only give one good solid reason.... and that would be the risk of contracting HIV, AIDs, or getting an infection. Which I am not concerned about at all. I go to a great shop, and my tattoo artist is very sanitary.

    So, what are ya'lls thoughts on this? Would still getting the tattoo make me a horrible mom?

    Also, I was going to get it on my arm... so I'm also not really concerned about it streching.

    Thanks for your help!

    Personally I would wait until after the baby for the tattoo.

    Yeah. Why put your body through the extra stress when it's already going through enough changes?

    It's also about stressing out your body and the fetus. Your body is going to be going through some huge hormonal changes and getting tattooed isn't going to help that situation at all.

    I'm also willing to bet that any tattoo shop that is worth the money will refuse to do it if i you tell them you're pregnant.

    Open wound + Already weakened body/immune system + supporting a fetus = a lot of stress on the body that could result in BAD BAD outcomes. Staph infections while preggers are NOT fun

    Thank you everyone for your replies... I guess I'll just wait... It's gonna be hard, considering I am seriously addicted. :big grin: But, I can do it.

    They aren't pierced.... They're tattooed.
