Tattoo Guidlines & Information

 

You may be eligible to donate blood after getting a tattoo or permanent makeup if it was done at a licensed facility in a regulated state AND it is healed without infection. If your tattoo or permanent makeup was NOT done in a state regulated facility, wait 12 months before donating blood.

Most states, including Michigan, now have regulations for tattoo parlors which make getting a tattoo or permanent makeup safer. Click here for a complete list of regulated states.
