    After getting a tattoo you cannot donate blood for 12 months. This is if you got it in a state regulated parlor.

    According to Blood Doc on Yahoo Answers, "Current FDA guidelines allow potential donors who have received a tattoo to become volunteer blood donors as soon as the tattoo site heals, IF state agencies where the tattoo was applied inspects and licenses such facilities. Otherwise, there is a one year deferral from application date. This applies to both volunteer and compensated (plasma) donations. Please contact your local blood center for specific eligibility criteria for your area."
