Can I get a tattoo 4 months post accutane.

I took accutane for 4 months and have now been off the medication for 4 months. I am going to Vancouver next week and am wondering if it would be okay for me to get a tattoo

Yes, you can.
but take care about security of the material (ask what kind of ink they going to use on your skin, avoid the metal containing ones) and "new needles" (they must open front you)
