Can You Donate Blood If You Have a Tattoo?

Answer

Yes, you can donate blood if you have a tattoo, given the conditions are acceptable. The donor must wait 12 months after a tattoo, if the tattoo was applied in a state that does not regulate tattoo facilities. This is due to concerns about hepatitis. Donations are acceptable if the tattoo was applied by a state-regulated entity using sterile needles and ink that is not reused.
