    I have got a tattoo in the same place and it didn't really stretch much last time, I wouldn't think it will stretch much more !

    I'm was wondering the same thing. I've got one in the same spot and mine is a word. Hope we can still read it afterward.

    I've got a butterfly in the same place, last time it stretched my oh called it an eagle! It went back to normal after the birth though. Don't worry.

    I work in a tattoo studio.... Depends on your skin babe. Also after some peoples go back to normal, just depends on stretchmarks xx

    Ive got a butterfly on my tummy and it looked more like a seagul when i was pregnant with my first but its fine now. Mind u i was lucky enough not to get strecth marks so maybe i got elastic skin? Hoping it'll be the same this time!!

    I have one in the same place and during my previous pregnancy it didn't become misshapen at all, I just have a couple of stretch marks on it.

    My mom has a tattoo around her actual belly button, a pattern sort of thing. It was HUGE when she was pregnant. But, went back to normal. :)

    I have a dove in that same spot that I got just before I fell pregnant with my daughter. It got pretty stretched out and honestly, some of it looks terrible now (it's just the outline) but it could have also looked worse. Oh well... not much we can do about them now haha.

    I have loads of tattoos, 1 of them is by my belly button and I have swallows on my hips. This is pregnancy number 3 and *touches wood* they have all been fine, they just grew a bit and then shrunk back once baby was here.
