    Alot of places make you sign a form before you get a tatt and there is a breastfeeding question on there. I answered truthfully and was knocked back, they refused to do it.
    I went to another place and wasnt as truthful, I had the tatt done and had no issue. The only reason they worry about doing it when you are breastfeeding is infection and aparently the ink not taking as well. Weeeeeellll my answer to that is that they are willing to tatt people with cancer, who smoke, who drink, who take drugs, and well, their immunity is not up to scratch either, all of them will take longer to heal, and if you go to a place with a good rep that is following all the hygene laws, then no worries. My tatt was, and still is, perfect.

    Same here.. If you can't donate blood after a tattoo then I personally wouldn't feel safe breastfeeding after one.
    Lots of things do carry a risk of infection but i'd be more worried about passing something onto the baby than getting some kind of infection myself.

    Infection is always a risk - but I wouldn't risk it, not even if I believe the equipment to be that sterile I could eat from it. At the end of the day, that very small chance is too much!

    I didn't even know some places wouldn't do it when you're BF. My tattoo artist uses all disposable needles etc which she opens in front of you so I wouldn't think there'd be a risk in that case but I can see where people are coming from.

    I certainly wouldn't get a backyard tattoo or get one done overseas, but if you go to a reliable establishment that complies with all the health and safety standards then I can't see the issue.
