KRON—Tattoos are a way of expressing yourself, but for mothers-to-be, it may be dangerous to get one.
If you can’t wait until your baby is born to get some ink, here are some things to keep in mind.
Experts say make sure your tattoo artist sterilizes their needles and all of the ink is first opened during your session.
Many tattoo artists won’t work on someone who is pregnant.
An healthy alternative to a real tattoo is a temporary henna tattoo, but doctors warn pregnant women to be careful with that as well.
You also want to make sure your artist isn’t using black henna dye because it can cause burns and blisters.
