    they say to wait i think kellymom.com talks about it

    eta: here is what kellymom from their website says:
    Tattoos

    There is no evidence that getting a tattoo will affect breastfeeding. There should be no harm to mom or baby from the dyes injected. If you get a tattoo, the biggest concern for anyone (not just nursing moms) is infection (hepatitis or HIV)-- so make sure the place you go has good references and is clean.

    I think it would be fine as long as the needles are clean.
