Acceptable if the tattoo was applied by a state-regulated entity using sterile needles and ink that is not reused. There are 32 states that currently regulate tattoo facilities. You should discuss your particular situation with the health historian at the time of donation.

Why? Because of a recent tattoo or piercing? Not true, if you got them from a licensed shop in Missouri! You only have to wait a few days. Missouri is a special case as is Texas, Kansas and Arkansas.
This is a very common mistake. I wish the Red Cross would make that more clear on their website.
