You will no longer be deferred for tattoos obtained in a California State regulated entity. You will still be deferred for 12 months if you obtained a tattoo outside of California or in California in a non-regulated entity.

Your tattoo must be healed, bandage removed, and no scabs or exposed wounds/bleeding present in the tattooed area. If you have any questions about your eligibility to donate with a tattoo, give us a call at 888-723-7831.
