oh and for everyone who's dogging on me because i have a tattoo, it is a very special thing to me and it has to do with my dead father. get over your life.

Mistress K
Yes, but not right after you get the tattoo. I'm not sure how long you have to wait, it's probably on the red cross' website.

~~eddie m~~~
yes of course!

yes you can.

Yes, you can. They just have to enter the skin at an angle if the tattoo is in the inside elbow cuz that's where they draw the blood.

Oh, I just remember. You can't donate if your tattoo is only 8 weeks old. After that, you're fine.

Evan R
yes if you haven't got one in the past 12 months but other than that your good to go
just make sure you don't have bad blood

Tony L
well depends how long u have had it for my cousin wrks in a blood bank and he told me that before the first year you cant donate beacuse there resent ink in your blood system. After a year they steel might not let u donate beacuse they dnt want to risk it you steel might have ink in your blood system.

Helen B
yes tattoos arnt in your blood stream

Michael M
I would say yes.

yes you can still donate because the tatoo does'nt get into your blood stream it just goes into your skin.

I think it's like 10 months or so that you can't donate after any tatoos or piercings. If your from Canada call 1 800 2DONATE and they will give you all the correct information you need.

They ask when was the date of your last tatoo so I suspect theres a grace period.

Graham S
Yes you can. The Red Cross used to come on board our Royal Navy ship to collect blood donations from the sailors, most of whom have tatoos.


So what if you had a tattoo on your butt...do you think they make people strip naked and check for tattoos then let them draw blood? LOL if you want to give blood go and give it...if they dont want you to they will say..sorry you cant...i hear they give fruit punch and cookies too ;-)

christian s
yes you can but if you donate through red cross it has to be a certain period of time since you have gotten a tattoo

Yes, I have 6 tattoos and I donate all the time. You have to wait 30 days after getting a tattoo before you can donate but after that they'll let you bleed to your heart's content.

Subra D
YES. I did and i had a tattoo.

yes you can as long as its older then a year

YES. I have 2 tats and donate.

Of course, I have.


You can. But you can't donate if you got your tattoo within a certain amount of time.

I think you have to wait about 6 weeks from the time you get your tattoo til the time you donate blood.


sorry to digress a little but this is to abbygale : the reason people would want to donate blood is to help save the lives of the people who desperately need it. you arent dying so you dont need it but for the people whose lives are on the line our blood is the most valuable thing they could ever hope for. good upstanding citizens who arent selfish donate blood. i'm not tearing into you but just trying to really explain it so you never have to ask that question again, cuz anyone else would look at you like you're crazy for saying that. :)


Yes you can.

But you have to wait up to one year after you get your tattoo.

People donate blood because there are people out there dying.

some ppl just dnt understand and judge ppl to quickly who have tattoos, shame on those ppl, if they dnt like tattoos fine , thats their choice, tattoos are personal decisions dnt worry bout ppl doggin u, anyway
yes yew can onate blood if u got tattoos, because every single donation of blodd is tested anyway b4 being gven to a person who needs it.

you can if you haven't gotten a new one in the last 12 months. Ask the place to be sure.

You have to wait a certain amount of time after the tattoo but yes, after that time period you can donate blood. (I think it's a year) I remember being asked how long I'd had my tattoo and it had been over 5 years so no issues.

Wait 12 months after a tattoo if the tattoo was applied in a state that does not regulate tattoo facilities. This requirement is related to concerns about hepatitis. Learn more about hepatitis and blood donation.

Acceptable if the tattoo was applied by a state-regulated entity using sterile needles and ink that is not reused. Only a few states currently regulate tattoo facilities, so most donors with tattoos must wait 12 months after tattoo application before donating blood. You should discuss your particular situation with the health historian at the time of donation.
