What’s a hip, tattooed, pierced and breastfeeding (or soon-to-be) mom to do? Is there breastfeeding during or after tattooing and nipple piercings? This presentation will provide a review of the available literature regarding breastfeeding and body modifications, a discussion of why women choose to alter their bodies through body modifications, evidence-based information on the safety and different types of body modifications available and the effect on breastfeeding, and how to identify and reduce any potential barriers to successful breastfeeding with tattoos and piercings.
