I have one on my ribs and one next to my hip as low as it could go before hitting the hairline. So far neither of them have stretched out (this is my first pregnancy). I doubt the rib one with stretch at all and only a little bit of the top of my hip-area tattoo is on my belly, so I'm hoping that one turns out alright in the end :)

Hey there,

I have a large tattoo on my right flank area (love handle on my back). Nothing on my stomach though as I knew I wanted children.

If you are having a singleton, I think you might be ok. If it were twins, I would think it would stretch out. GL! :)

I am tattooed head to toe. :) I have several around my hips, lower stomach, ribs area. No issues thus far but a friend who has had two kids and is similarly tattooed told me to put a thin layer of liquid skin or even glue over the whole area if one was starting to feel tight. All hers still look great!

I have one all down my side and one on my right hip but still in the stretching area. I'm on my third baby and honestly it will stretch some when you grow, going to have to BUT it has returned to mostly normal once I returned to my normal weight!

I've got 7 tattoos (and want more!). None are directly on my belly though. But, I do have one small one that is on my left hip area normally, but when pregnant winds up being on the expanding belly, lol. With my first, it didn't stretch out or get all wonky, but it is a small one (a vampire bite with drops of blood). I'm hoping the same happens this time, lol. Also, I have a butterfly tribal-ish one on my right side that is further away from the belly area than the vampire bite, and it wasn't affected with my first pregnancy either.

So, depending on exactly where it is and how big it is to start with will probably be factors in what happens to it. Along with, of course, how much your belly stretches.

I'm tattooed in my thighs, hips, pelvis and yes my stomach, around my belly button. It depends how
Much weight you gain, mine always get really huge and then when the baby weight cones off they shrink back down. Worst case you'll get stretch marks through it, but I doubt it:) your tattoo will DEF super stretch out the bigger you get but it will shrink back. I promise:)
