Tattooing or giving birth to a new life is a choice in our lives. These choices define who we are. The big unknown choices in life just mean that we need to learn. I have been asked several times before: Can I tattoo while pregnant? In order to ensure the health of mothers and babies, let’s talk about this problem today.
As far as pregnant women are concerned, the biggest concern of doctors will be infection. We all know that not all tattoo shops will adhere to strict and standard hygiene rules. So in these non-standard tattoo shops, we need to pay attention to some blood sources. The risk of sexual infections includes: Staphylococcus, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and AIDS.
These diseases are dangerous whether you are pregnant or not, and when you are pregnant, no matter which of these diseases you have, there is a high probability that they will be transmitted to an unborn baby.
Others such as fever, fear of cold, abscesses or inflammations due to non-compliant tattoo pigments, and changes in the body, as well as a series of changes in the body’s resistance to foreign objects, can have unpredictable consequences.
The body becomes more sensitive during pregnancy, which means that the pain will increase or multiply during tattooing.
Affects tattoo effect
During pregnancy, women’s hormone secretion will change and fluctuate, some of which will affect the skin condition, make the skin different before and after pregnancy, which will change the appearance of the tattoo. Before and after pregnancy, women’s skin changes the most in the abdomen, and the second is the buttocks. If you must tattoo during pregnancy, these two are the least recommended, and it is also the place where stretch marks are most likely to occur.
During pregnancy, there may be some other skin diseases that affect the final effect of the tattoo, such as: urticarial papules and plaques, prurigo of pregnancy, herpes pustules, pigmentation.
So during pregnancy, stop thinking about tattooing, because these issues not only affect the health of you and your baby. At the same time, it will greatly affect the final effect of the tattoo during pregnancy. And when your pregnancy is over and you are breastfeeding, we also do n’t recommend tattooing because of breastfeeding problems. If during this period, tattooing causes infection, there is also the risk of transmitting the disease to your baby through milk.
