Why can’t we get permanent makeup when we are pregnant/breast feeding? 

All Cosmetic Tattoo/Micropigmentation procedures carry some risk of infection because the skin is being broken. While all measures are taken to prevent any infection during the procedure is a very slight possibility you can get an infection if not cared for correctly after the procedure (for example if the client wears makeup or touches the healing work done). If this happens, then the baby could pick up a secondary infection.


  • During pregnancy, facial tissue can be stretched due to swelling and fluid retention. This means that makeup tattoos applied during pregnancy have the potential to change in shape once the baby has been born or no longer suit.
  • Facial skin may be more susceptible to pigment darkening (especially for those who get Melasma, commonly known as the “mask of pregnancy”) and so the trauma to the skin during the procedure may result in hyper-pigmentation in that area. So basically your skin would get pigmented and darker in some areas
  • On the other had in some women find their skin may also be resistant to accepting the tattoo pigment due to the increase in hormonal changes and fluctuations
  • There is also a slight possibility that some ladies can faint while being pregnant and this would not be ideal while tattooing.
  • Most cosmetic tattooists will use some form of anesthetic and numbing cream prior and during procedures. These will absorb into the skin and may enter into the blood stream.
  • There is not enough known about the tattoo pigments on the growing baby to ensure safety


It’s always best to be cautious while being pregnant and or breastfeeding and just wait those extra few months. A good Cosmetic Tattoo Artist will want the best for you and your baby
