I really have an issue with the controversy over women getting tattooed while pregnant. There are so many different arguments that arise, but here is my defense: (keep in mind i have never gotten a tattoo while i was pregnant)
The issue that most people seem to have with it, is the possibility of getting diseases from the needles. Ok. Fair enough. But most people are smart. They check out the places they are using before they jump on the table. #2. You can contract Hepatitis and AIDS (and lie diseases) from a needle EVEN WHEN YOU AREN'T PREGNANT! So if you have tattoos at all, your baby may already be in danger!!!
I don't have any issue with women getting tattoos while they are pregnant. But i want to see what the community says.
