I am 5 weeks pregnant is it safe to get a tattoo removed through laser treatment while being pregnant?

No it can cause to much stress on the baby & being so early may be a result of mc

When a tattoo is removed, the ink breaks down and gets absorbed into the skin. The ink can prove harmful to the baby.

If you can't get a tattoo while pregnant, you can't get tattoo removal either....I thinjk tattoo removal is even worse than getting the tattoo itself!
