Why can't a pregnant woman get a tattoo Tattooed women

Why can’t a pregnant woman get a tattoo?

The permanent cosmetics industry has strict guidelines about not tattooing pregnant and breastfeeding women. This is for two main reasons: first, they are more likely to contract an infection. It is estimated that 6 percent of people contract an infection from a new tattoo, and second, women’s immune systems may be less developed. The bottom line is, it is better to avoid permanent cosmetics in this situation than risk the health of your baby or your unborn child.
