Tattoo and Pierced Tribe II - Page 36

post #701 of 703

Hi, all! Looking for some advice (or just for you ladies to confirm what I already know.) I got a small tattoo on my wrist a few months back. It's just the word peace. The artist told me to come back in a few weeks because wrist tattoos almost always need touch ups. It most definitely does need some touch ups, but I've been putting it off for a while. Well now I'm about to move out of state, so figured I should probably do it before I go. Only problem is, I just found out I'm pregnant. It's just a tiny little bit of touching up, but I'm guessing the no tattoos while pregnant rule is there for a reason. It's disappointing, because it's really looking bad and I have no idea when I'll be back in the area. I probably should just wait though, right?

To answer my own question about navel piercings and babywearing, ouch! I had to stop using the ergo for about a month and use our didymos and only use chest ties. So yeah if you are an avid babywearer make sure you have some carries that do not put pressure of the wrap or ssc on your navel...

On another note I soo want to get a tattoo this year. Or maybe modify the one I've had for a decade, lol

I was about four hours into a twenty-hour tattoo when I found out that I'm pregnant. I didn't know you couldn't get tattooed while pregnant, so I asked my husband (a former piercer and tattoo artist) why that is. He says it temporarily weakens your immune system, and puts stress on your body because it's trauma. He did not think getting a touch up right now would be a good idea, so probably best to wait.
