Hi, I found out this week that I'm pregnant,I think 5 weeks, which is great, still hasn't really sunk in yet, but I had booked for next sat to have a tattoo redone on my shoulder, I have done a bit of research and can really find a definite yes or no as to getting it done. I have the docs on thurs so will check and see what he says.

Has any one had one done or know any one who has in the early stages?



  • hey,

    i dont know if it would be ok or not but i know you aren't allowed to give blood for about a year after having a tattoo/piercing due to risk of infection, so it might be advisable not to in case any infection is passed through to the baby. i would get advice from your doc and if you can have it done then make sure the tattooist is reputable and hygienic.

    congrats on your pregnancy!!
