Is it okay to get a tattoo while breastfeeding your baby?

Agree with the clean and hygienic part of things, but I would hope that's just common sense whether you're breastfeeding or not :)
I'd also watch the area in which you get it. I would personally advise against getting a tattoo anywhere near your breast. That would include across your ribs, across your boobs, even on your stomach. Depending on how old your child is, I'd also avoid even your arms or anywhere your child can reach while feeding. I can imagine that it would be very painful (and would probably have a negative impact on the quality of the tattoo) to have a small child raking their claws (hands or feet) across a fresh tattoo :)

The ink stays in your skin and wont have any impact on breastfeeding so there is no problem to get a tat.Just make sure you get it done at a clean hygene place and artist.
