You asked a question about getting a tattoo while pregnant. And the best advice I have for you is to get one at your own risk, because there are risks associated with getting tattoos, and pregnancy isn’t really the time to take extra risks, because if you were to catch a blood-born illness, it wouldn’t only affect you, it could also potentially affect your unborn baby, or they could contract it during the labor and delivery process. And so I would say wait until after you’ve had the baby just so that it reduces the risk that you and your baby would be exposed to.
If and when you decide to get a tattoo, be sure that you know the cleanliness practices that the tattoo parlor and artist are following, that they have strict guidelines that they follow about cleanliness so it reduces your chances of getting blood-born pathogens and other infections.
