Can I get a tattoo or piercing done during pregnancy?
Are tattoos and piercings safe to get during pregnancy?
There are no direct dangers to your pregnancy should you receive a piercing or a tattoo.
However, needle cleanliness should be assured. You could encounter blood-borne infections, primarily hepatitis, in less-than-ideal sterile situations.
In this scenario, both mother and baby would be at significant risk for life-long repercussions of an infection.
Therefore, most healthcare providers will recommend that most needle-to-skin embellishments wait until after your baby is born.
