In brief: Wait

There is no risk other than infection.
But during pregnancy it is best to avoid chemicals.

In brief: Wouldn't recommend

Due to the risk of hiv, hepatitis, and a number of other infections which can be transmitted during tattoo placement, i wouldn't recommend putting your unborn child at risk.
I would ask your obgyn their thoughts as well.
