Teen Mom Kailyn Lowry loves tattoos and has about one bagillion. From her huge back tattoo to her small wrist tats to her ever-expanding sleeve, the reality star is nearly covered in ink. But now that she's pregnant with husband Javi Marroquin, will she be able to curb her tattoo habit long enough to stay safe?
Getting inked while pregnant can be risky. In fact, it can even cause a miscarriage.
It's got nothing to do with the ink and everything to do the pain and the trauma. News flash! Getting tattoos hurts, and when your body is in pain, it freaks out and releases adrenaline, and that adrenaline rush could potentially harm a pregnancy.
There's no reason to take any chances at all when it comes to your little bun in the oven, and thankfully, Kailyn's tattoo artist Jesse Probus agrees.
He told RadarOnline that he will not be giving Kailyn any tattoos while she's pregnant. He explained that both she and he are aware of the risks and have decided to table any new ink until she pops out that baby.
Kailyn's all about finishing that sleeve of hers, but doesn't mind waiting until it's 100 percent safe. In the meantime, she can live vicariously through Javi. He's working on filling up his arm with tats, just like his wife. Aww.
And who knows, maybe the arrival of their baby will spark some awesome new tattoo ideas. Kailyn's due in a few months ... guess we'll just have to wait and see. Perhaps a family portrait on an upper thigh is in order?
Did you get tattooed while pregnant?
