Why do blood and plasma centers disqualify donors for too many tattoos?

    I think the health department must verify that all ink is sterile as well as all the equipment is sterile. Once that is done, and the tattoo artist is licensed and trained in sterile procedures, the shop should get an ok from the health dept.

    Yes, but to me this makes no sense. A large tattoo on one person could be completed by multiple artists increasing the risk, and a person with ten tattoos may stick to the same artist with the right equipment reducing the risk. It really is 50/50.

    Yes, but some centers allow people with three tattoos, and no more than that. A person with three tattoos could have had them completed by people on the street, whereas somebody with 4+ tats could be professional. The limit is not sensical.
