Response from Dr. Young

Hello again,

People living with HIV can and do have healthy, HIV-uninfected babies. Having an undetectable HIV viral load is probably the single most important thing that one can do during pregnancy to insure the health of the child.

Tatoos are not a problem, if done in a reputable, hygienic place.
