I already have 2 tats and would love to get at least 3 more. The next one I want to get is something I have tossed around for years, but thought it best to do it after I have this little one. The other would be one that my sister and I would share, and the 3rd would be something to symbolize DH.

We have quite a few tatoo shops around where I live, and everytime I drive past them I start itching to go in and get one. Of course I can't right now, but I will as soon as I can. So, how long after a pregnancy would you wait to get inked? I obviously wouldn't be putting it in a spot that needs to shrink back, since neither of my tats are in that kind of an area anyway.

Like I told you, about 15 minutes ago (LOL). Best time would surely be after you have completed breast feeding. But if you are still unsure ask your midwife on your next visit.

If you are planning to breastfeed you will have to wait until you are done with that. Most shops won't do ink if pregnant or breastfeeding. If you aren't BF then really it would be when you feel ready. Given what your body will go through during L&D you probably won't feel up to it until you have healed some. Good luck with your new tattoos .

Thanks Jess. We'll see how it all pans out. Knowing me, I'll go get all my tats done within weeks of each other. I'm really wanting them done. Now I just need to come up with the exact design. I have an idea, it's just a matter of designing it to fit my needs. I have a few months to do that.
