    There's no reason why you can't get a tattoo while breast feeding.

    I don't see why one can't get a tattoo when bf, unless she wants it done on her breast then i'm not sure if it's a good idea

    Getting a tattoo does carry a risk of infection and blood borne diseases, personally I'd wait.

    But that's a risk at any point, and if you go to a reputable place that uses new and sterilized needles then the risk is so minimal it's basically non existent.

    because of this...You'd need to really suss out your artist and make sure they had an awesome autoclave and good hygiene standards.

    Hepatitis would be a main concern for some people.

    My DH got one when I was pregnant ( our names and I asked about getting one too... They said they won't do it to pregnant women, I think if your breastfeeding it would carry the same risks. Ie infection etc.
    Personally I would wait.

    Infection is always a risk.
