Tattoos after pregnancy

I have a clover tattoo near my pelvic bone. I was worried it would be destroyed during pregnancy, but it survived all 3. My c-section scars actually begin right next to it. I told my doctors not to worry about it as it's something I had done when I was 18 and I don't care about that tattoo at all (I don't dislike it... I just wouldn't have cared if it was ruined) and my husband and I are the only people that ever see it. Besides the normal fading, it looks the same as it did when I got it done!

I would think tattoos on your stomach would get disfigured because the skin grows and shrinks SO MUCH and it's unlikely that it does so uniformly. But elsewhere on your body, if it's in places that don't expand quite as drastically they are probably fine :)
