Seriously if you're going to put such a pointless answer why bother...try offering reasons to why it's harmful to someone's baby.

OK firstly most tattoo associations have made it illegal for tattoo artists to tattoo pregnant ladies. Mainly for the reason that in the unlikely event that something does happen to the baby it looks bad on the artist, their shop and pretty much the whole tattoo industry.

Now in retrospect to the previous response of 'duhhh' there is no hard evidence that getting tattooed while pregnant directly harms the unborn baby. The biggest fear is that the stress on the body during a tattoo can add to the stress on the body already being caused from the pregnancy and this could possibly lead to complications.

There is also the risk of infection, though that risk applies to anyone that gets tattooed.

Smoking marijuana after getting a tattoo will cause no harm to your body. However, alcohol intake before getting a tattoo can cause excess bleeding.

Anything you do to your body, you do to the baby. This includes the jumps in adrenaline and endorphins your body produces when getting tattooed or pierced. So yes, it could. Most legit shops will not do it

Yes. Your foot is still part of your body. The same blood travels all through your body.

It is a proven scientific fact that receiving a tattoo will not get you pregnant..... however, if you are pregnant at the time you get a tattoo, it will not cause your baby harm...

Tattoos do not effect the breast milk as the ink doesnt travel through the bloodstream, however i would not risk getting a tattoo while you are breastfeeding as other aspects of the tattoo could potentially harm a baby such as infections which can be picked up from a new tattoo which can travel through the bloodstream and be passed into the milk. Therefore i would wait until you have finished breastfeeding before getting a Tattoo.

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.

Only if you are extremely unlucky. You should avoid a tattoo on the stomach or back, just in case.

Personally I would put the safety of your baby first... ANYTHING can jeopardize that babies health... think it over.... the smallest infection can harm your unborn child

I dont think it will hurt a baby, but before you decide if you want a tattoo maybe you should learn how to spell....

You will not get chlamydia from getting a tattoo.

If the legal guardian brings the baby in yes. But not for a tattoo

IMHO, there are no pros to getting a tattoo.

No. It will not harm your baby.

Getting a tattoo removed can be extremely painful ! When you get a tattoo removed it usually just leaves a scar of what the tattoo is, it's almost like getting a scarification tattoo, there is honestly no point in even getting a tattoo removed, you will still have it on your skin.

Getting tattoos is not anti-christian necessarily. The only reference the bible makes to that is not to harm yourself in anyway, not everyone sees getting a tattoo as self-harm. These days many normal daily activities might be considered self-harm, such as drinking caffeine, eating fatty foods, taking over the counter medication, taking prescription medication, et c., so whether or not tattoos are self-harm is a subjective thing.

Yes, alcohol can harm an unborn baby.

If not properly tended to, You need to have it protected. If you go out on the Field with a new Tattoo and you get hit, you will have some of the worst pain in the world. I would wait until after the season.

There is no evidence to suggest a baby has been born with a 666 tattoo. It is impossible for a tattoo to be placed on a babe in the womb.

No. It will not harm your baby. Your doctor will take that some drug will not harm your baby.
