So I'm going to make the Baby's First Tattoo sweater for my incoming niece (due any day now!) but I absolutely loathe and despise seams, so I was hoping to rework the pattern to be knit all in one piece - aside from making and adding the sleeves, of course.  I know that you're supposed to leave out seam stitches when adapting the pattern, so does that mean that I would take away one stitch from each side panel and 2 from the back?  Will that mess with my shaping patterns later?

I don't remember the exact pattern instructions, but it really shouldn't mess with the shaping.  Just make sure you remember to adjust for the fact that you didn't cast on as many stitches.  I always use markers where the side seams should be just to remind myself.
