  • Tattooing on the stomach is said to be extremely painful, and a pregnant lady’ stomach is a very delicate place. Avoid getting a tattoo on your stomach.
  • Tattooing leads to pre-mature labor, which is very harmful for the baby.
  • A women’ skin tends to stretch during pregnancy, and contracts after pregnancy.
