I had an appointment for a tattoo for my birthday before booking my surgery date. Now I will be having a mommy makeover Jan 31st so is getting a tattoo on my wrist Feb 10th ok or should I cancel the appt? If so then when would it be safe to get it? Or would it be safe to get it now & have time for it to heal before surgery?

Tattoo: Wait 4-6 Weeks After Mommy Makeover
The risk of infection is generally low if done with proper technique and equipment, however I would recommend waiting 6 weeks after surgery before getting it done. This is assuming you are healing properly from your surgery. Good luck.

If the tattoo is separated from surgery by two weeks or so, transient bacteremia from the tattoo should be gone. If an infection develops it should happen in 5 to 7 days.
