Best Answer

Yes. You are not to, under ANY circumstance to get a tattoo while you are pregnant. You are bombarding the body with a foreign substance that your body will fight off, and in the pregnant state, this is not good. It is a standard question that is asked before any tattoo. Wait the nine months.

Why can't you get tattoos while pregnant?

You can but you shouldn't an a lot of tattoo artists won't give you one.
