Pregnancy deserves celebration, and mothers everywhere deserve the right to celebrate their soon-to-be pride and joys in any way they wish, including pregnant belly art. That being said, a painted pregnant belly enters a bit of iffy territory, considering beneath the canvas lies another human life form. If you believe music impacts a fetus’s development, you best believe the art surrounding their chambers holds some power over it. Beyoncé, queen that she is, managed to pull off her tummy art with a simple yet elegant henna pattern, a standard the rest of the world needs to follow. Because when you start sporting a creepy or uncomfortable painted stomach, people start to wonder if you’re expecting an infant or The Omen.
The mommies below take the pregnant belly to whole new levels of weirdness, like a creepy pregnancy announcement that lands too close to home, your baby’s, that is. Maybe next time rejoice in motherhood with a weird pregnancy cake instead; the sugar helps the message go down a little easier. Everyone can tell you’re having a baby, why also tell them you have no self-awareness?
