If you are not going anywhere near the scar I think it might be ok- I like the fact that you would still be numb! I would discuss it with your plastic surgeon first, however.

I would advise you to wait for at least 6-9 months after surgery before considering a tattoo so that everything can settle down. This is much too soon after surgery and, ultimately, may impact the aesthetic result.

Thank you for your question. Generally, I would suggest waiting until everything is completely healed prior to getting a tattoo after surgery.  You want to make sure that you have

the best results after surgery.
