Q:

Hi,  I'm breast feeding my baby of 3months .. Can I get a tattoo done? Cud that affect my baby through my milk.. Is there a connection?



Prithvi Balaji

actually there is no connection but the pen they use for it it should not cause any infection to you so be careful and enjoy your tattoo

Sonali Shivlani

If you are visiting a reputed place there is generally no evidence that is contraindicative. However since a tattoo is an open wound for a few days the possibility of a bacterial infection after the tattoo is done is high and this can pass into breast milk.

Prithvi Balaji

then I am wrong. please ignore my comment
