If you care about your unborn child, you shouldn't get a permanent tattoo while you're pregnant. Like body piercing, your immune system is weakened while a tattoo is healing, and, thus, you and your child will be more susceptible to illness. Besides, reputable tattoo parlors will refuse to pierce someone who is known to be pregnant. Try applying a temporary tattoo while you're pregnant.
