Based on all the research I've done, it comes back stating that new tattoos are really dangerous to obtain during a pregnancy. Henceforth, I wouldn't get one. They say (the tattooists) that it's because the ink can cause lead poisoning to the unborn baby.

But what about piercings? How safe are they to obtain during a pregnancy? All it is, is nothing more than a needle going through the flesh, and heck... I get that almost every single friggen visit at my doctors office... Sometimes more than one! So... with that in mind, are piercings safe to get during a pregnancy?

What is your reasonings to why or why not? Have you or would you?

Someone already asked this but my advice is to consult your piercer. If he/she agrees to pierce you while you're pregnant, RUN! Any sane piercer, who has the slightest clue what they're doing, isn't going to go near a pregnant lady with a needle. Sure, as you said, its just a poke, but its a long healing process for any piercing, and the risk of infection alone is a big risk. Its not something I'd be willing to do while pregnant, I care for my kid too much.

I personally wouldn't take the risk. Too much of a chance for infection!

I brought it up when I was preg because I went in to the shop to get a new barbell for my tongue, and the artist offered to peirce my eyebrow (apprentice) But I told her I was pregnant (she couldn't tell yet) then she said right away she wouldn't so I asked why. She said that she has heard that the baby can feel it too. I don't think thats very true, but I wouldn't go for it either way. 9 months isn't a terribly long wait.
