Thinking Of Getting Inked During Your Pregnancy? Think Again!

Getting inked has always been a question mark since years and there are many stories and myths related to it. But even after all this, the love for getting inked doesn’t seem to subside in people. You would find many people who love to get inked. But getting inked during pregnancy is a very serious question.

Often pregnant ladies have the idea of getting inked to show their love or happiness about their pregnancy and if you are also one of them, then the article is definitely going to help you make up your mind.

So, if you wish to get a permanent tattoo during pregnancy then I would definitely recommend you to consult your doctor. While the ink is completely harmless to you, it may have adverse effects on your baby. So until and unless you get the green signal from your doctor, I do not think getting permanent tattoo is a very bright idea.

Once you get a green signal for your tattoo, you need to chose a good ink parlour as it is not just about you but also about your baby. While choosing a tattoo parlour, keep the following things in mind:

  1. Make sure you go to a licensed in parlour. You are going to find a number of tattoo parlours that run without a license. Please do not risk your baby’s life to save a few bucks.
  2. Also check if your choice of parlour has a sterilizing unit or not. We all know that used needles could lead to. Using non sterile needle could not just be harmful to you but also to your baby.
  3. Make sure your parlour takes care of hygiene and your tattoo artist uses gives while working. You could pay a surprise visit to check on it yourself too.

After reading these points, if you feel confused about getting inked during pregnancy then you should probably hold that thought because a tattoo infection could lead to HIV or hepatitis B as well. This is a very big risk to take upon. Also, there is no clear information about ink and their effects on the baby. So it is better to be safe than sorry. Also, doctors often suggest being extra careful during the first trimester. Taking a risk as big as this could be very dangerous for the baby and the mother both. Also, considering a tattoo in the last trimmest is strict no-no.

Getting inked is a permanent thing and it would stay for your entire life. I would suggest all pregnant ladies to wait until the delivery and then get a tattoo done. A tattoo if gone wrong can be easily corrected these days but if you take a risk and get inked during the pregnancy which leads to a negative impact on your child, then you may not be able to fix that forever. So, avoid this mishap and remember permanent tattoo in pregnant ladies is to be avoided. I hope this article helps you in making up your mind for good.
