A mother who smokes/drinks during pregnancy will increase the chances of genetic issues with the baby, but it's not an automatic thing. The predicted horrors of crack/cocaine babies never really materialized as people were predicting in the 80's crack epidemic. Don't automatically condemn the child. I agree with the people advocating for adoption rather than some abortive procedure. Not sure why they're being thumbed down.
Obviously when you're pregnant, you shouldn't be drinking because it can induce Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, which is not a good thing at all. As far as the tattoo goes, I think it would have to be something to do with the fact you are basically injecting ink into your skin and possibly your bloodstream. Since a blood supply is shared between mother and child, it's probably not the best idea to do it.
Getting a tattoo can be really stressful on your body as well. Just think about how your CNS deals with you accidentally getting a cut, now imagine a needle going in and out of your skin at a high RPM for an hour. Don't be afraid to ask questions, it doesn't make you look like an idiot
I know you guys are joking but I actually feel bad for those kids. Living life with creepy mother fuckers trying to catch you screwing up. You can't go out and have careless fun because whatever you do is going to end up in that weeks tabloids. The parents aren't the ones to blame, same as the loving supportive parents who raise their kid as great as anyone could, yet their kid turns into a crack addict or shoots up a school. Can you imagine living through life wondering what you did so wrong to have your child turn out like that? It's fucking depressing.
Time to grow up I guess.. She wanted this without even knowing what she was up for???
