you can notch the joists. An inch or so square will not substancially weaked the joist. Be sure to secure the pipes to the well up into the the notch and it would be wise to put a nail protector plate across each just to be sure you never try to drive a nail through a pipe. Building supply houses have them, and I'd mortise them in to keep the ceiling line even. You're only talking 4, so it wouldn't be major carpentery.
