Laser Tattoo Removal and Pregnancy

I am in the process of getting my tattoo removed on my ankle and also want to start trying to get pregnant. I am not sure if this is safe to do. I was wondering if anyone has had this done while trying to get pregnant.

Re: Laser Tattoo Removal and Pregnancy

jill, I've been getting a tattoo removed from my arm for about a year and a half and it didn't affect my getting pregnant at all. I am 37.1 weeks now. I had a laser treatment at about 4/5 months along (can't remember exactly) and was told by my midwife, my general practitioner, and the dermatologist that does the laser that it is perfectly safe during pregnancy. Unfortunately, I had a bad reaction to the lidocaine they used to numb it, which I was fine with before pregnancy, so I'm waiting for any more treatments until after I have the baby. So, I think you're fine! Good luck.
