Yes. Lets say for example that a woman gets a tattoo on her belly. Later on if she gets pregnant and her belly grows large, the tattoo will stretch also.

Does gaining muscle mass affect the appearance of a tattoo?

If you gain muscle mass then it will stretch it. But if you gain a lot of muscle mass then it will stretch it and make it fade color. Depending on how much muscle mass you gain will depend on how much it stretches and fades. the tattoo should stretch to fit with your new size. however using steroids will cause the tattoo to stretch too far in one direction or another, thus permanently disfiguring it. whether it will fade i dont know. but the tattoo will resize with you skin (Assuming natural muscle growth).

Will the tattoo stretch if you are pregnant?

Yes, your tattoo will stretch when you are pregnant if the tattoo is (especially) on your breasts or trunk area. Some women tend to gain weight while they are pregnant (in more areas than just their abdomen area). Imagine it like this: your body is a balloon that is completely deflated (prior to pregnancy). As you go through the stages of pregnancy, your "balloon" gets bigger, and thus anything on your "balloon" will stretch. It may look 'foggy' or 'smokey' as the tattoo stretches.

How would pregnancy affect a tattoo near the belly button on the stomach?

its all conected, If you get stretch marks (most women do to some extent) your tattoo will stretch out and warp in those areas and it is not something that can be fixed. My tattoo artist strongly discourages belly tattoos for women who want to have children.
