    Default Henna tattoo

    What do you ladies think about getting Henna tattoos? They aren't permanent and it's all natural "ink" that's used. I'm thinking of getting one when i'm about 37 weeks to use as a visualization for when I'm in labor. How do you feel it goes with or against LDS principals? I was taught any drawing, even with pen and marker is a no no. But I personally have only felt that it's the permanent tattoos that are really frowned upon. But the Henna tattoo isn't just for fun but is going to be used for when I'm giving birth.

    But what are your opinions?

    Saw your post on the Birthing Naturally board

    I think I'd go ahead and do it. It's not like you're doing it to make your belly more attractive and to show off to everyone! Like you said, it's not permanent, and it's pretty much an aid for your natural birth.

    That's my 2 cents

    I personally don't see anything wrong with it. If you do end up doing it---share pics!

    I think I am going to go ahead and do it. DH is thinking of getting one as well and I will for sure share pics of it! My midwife is already demanding pics of it. lol. Love her to death. I think I've gotten more positive things about it then negative. It's not any worse then drawing on yourself with marker right? Actually probably safer with all the chemicals in markers.

    I may need help picking a design so don't be surprised to see a post with pics of the tattoo designs I'm looking at.

    I love the idea! In fact, I may copy your idea on my next birth.

    I don't think it's a bad thing. You are using a natural 'ink' and no needle, therefore not causing damage to your body. You are going to be putting it somewhere you can see, therefore not drawing attention to a part of your body that shouldn't be focused on.

    With that in mind, I wouldn't flaunt it, or go to the temple with it visible, or anything like that.

    But the way you are doing it, combined with your reasons, I think it's a great idea. Enjoy!
