Is Getting a Tattoo Safe During Pregnany?

Dear Doula,
My best friend and I have wanted to get a tattoo together for years. We finally decided on what we wanted, waited to make sure, then made an appointment (which is tonight actually).

She and her husband have been trying to get pregnant for the last year and this week she was supposed to get her period. She took a home pregnancy test this morning and it was positive. She's tracked the time from the possible date of conception to be about 2 weeks.
