  • I think so… but that’s really a question for a medical professional.

  • That shouldn’t be a problem.

  • Not at all. Good luck

  • i don’t think it should be a problem. Its a needle injection.

  • I didn’t have an epidural but I believe it’s an injection so a tattoo shouldn’t be a problem.

  • Yes you can. The epidural is a needle injected into your spine, a tattoo won’t affect it :) I’d ask a doctor or midwife if you’re concerned.

  • An epidural is just an injection into the spine, I can’t see how a tattoo would affect that
