No, it won't hurt the baby but they say not to get tattoos because the adrenaline could make the baby's heart rate go up and you run the risk of infection which could hurt, possibly kill, the baby. I'd say it's not worth it.

I'm really not sure.  There is always the risk of infection when getting a tattoo.  Also depending on where you are wanting to get it, there will be skin stretching during your pregnancy.  Personally, I don't think it's worth the risk to yourself or baby to do it at this time.

I'm going to try to sound as non judgemental as I can but your boyfriend did not get you pregnant by himself. You both got pregnant. Most tattoo artists wwon't tattoo pregnant women because of the risks and you should tell your parents because god forbid anything happens and they don't know you are pregnant then doctors or the hospital would be clueless til who knows when. But the answer to your tattoo question is I would wait. I have a tattoo myself and there are risks even not pregnant from infection and when pregnant your body cares more about making the baby then guarding your own body from infection.

And it didn't hurt me or my baby. I would say becareful where you get it. I got mine on my arm. Yes infection is possible but you need to make sure you go to a clean tat parlor and make sure you keep the tat cleaned and put on the lubrication. Usually for 7-10 days
