I did a couple of times while YDS was nursing. I mean that literally--he nursed during the tattoo. Awesome pain relief; I highly recommend it!

I would be afraid of getting an infection and needing antibiotics and those being passed on to the baby. But, I'm pretty prude about tattoos. I'm much much to flakey for anything that permanent!

I got one two weeks ago, and have had no problems. If you use a reputable tattoo artist and pay attention to the aftercare instructions, the risk of infection is really quite small.

I did, but not until my baby was a year old. I think it's prudent to wait at least a few months so that your body can heal from the birth before you ask it to heal a tattoo as well.
