Tattoos and Pregnancy

What if I am pregnant and want a tattoo?

Think it through. The main concern with getting a tattoo during pregnancy is the risk of contracting an infection, such as Hepatitis B and HIV. Although the risk is small, it is recommended that you wait to get a tattoo until after your baby is born” American Pregnancy

While getting a tattoo is an emotional decision, hormones in your system can lead you to be impulsive. Here at Lucky Bamboo Tattoo we always want to encourage health and safety. If you decide your tattoo just can’t wait, you are always welcome to call or come in and discuss it with the shop.
