Tattoo after uplift
if you are talking about a normal tattoo six to eight weeks if you are fully healed is a reasonable time to wait. If you are contemplating cosmetic tattoo for scar I would wait a minimum of six months but better 12 months, in any case speak to your surgeon before.
Breast lift recovery and getting a tattoo
I would ask your surgeon when he/she feels your are healed enough. If your wounds are well healed I would think six weeks would be long enough anywhere farther from your breast. If you desire it near the breast, you probably should wait several months.
Getting a tattoo after a breast lift
It's always best to check with your surgeon about his or her protocol. I advise my patients to wait at least six weeks after surgery before they get a tattoo. This time would allow for most of the initial healing to occur. For more information on this and similar topics, I recommend a plastic surgery Q&A book like "The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths."
