Inspiration for Decorating your Pregnant Belly

Everyone has heard about women getting pregnancy photoshoots done, but there’s a new trend on the rise: belly decorating. From intricate tattoos to silly disguises, mommies everywhere are having fun with their tummies. There are plenty of ways to do it. Even the famous Hollywood set have celebrity decorated baby bumps.

We decided to show you some of the best and the worst decorated pregnant bellies so you can create some really crazy photos or costume ideas! If you are the more traditional type you could always wear a maternity costume instead.

Hot Fun in the Summertime

Summer is coming up, and I’m sure you’re sick of needing to bundle up in so many bulky layers.

When you get a chance to strip down for the beach, don’t let your midsection go bear. Get a gorgeous henna tattoo and strut your stuff in your favorite bikini! If you want to test the look out first (henna dye can last up to three weeks), use some of our temporary tattoos and see how you like it.

Do the Monster Mash

Eventually summer will pass, but that’s okay–with fall comes Halloween and whole scope of belly-baring possibilities. Have your beau dress up as a chef and paint bread baking on your stomach so everyone will know that you have a “bun in the oven.” You could go for the gore factor when you use prosthetics, fake blood, and body parts to make it look like a monster has taken over your body. Feisty mommies can decorate their bumps with jungle beasts and animal print outfits. The soon-to-be-daddy can join you as Tarzan to make it a wild couples costume!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

If you’re due during the holiday season, you’ve got one heck of a gift coming your way. Get into the holiday spirit by decorating your baby bump! You can wrap garlands around it, stick an adhesive Santa beard to it, or do what this creative mom did and use a ribbon to trim it:

Guess Who?

You don’t need a holiday to have a little fun, though. Spend the afternoon turning your belly into a goofy face with our mustaches, beards, wigs, and glasses! From Duck Dynasty to Elvis Presley to Jack Sparrow, there’s whole range of characters for you to pick from. All you need is a little imagination and some spirit gum.

Pregnancy is an exciting time in your life, and you should enjoy it. Snag some body paint, skin-safe adhesive, and facial hair from our site, and go to town with your bad self. Just be sure to tell us what you made–we love hearing how innovative our customers are!
