    Get a Tattoo and Give Blood The Same Day!

    So I get a lot of tattoos, and it's been difficult for me to donate blood because in the past you have had to wait a year.  Well the Central California Blood Center has now lifted the one year waiting period, you can get a tattoo and donate on the same day if you wanted to!  Here is some information from with Facebook page and pictures of when some of my friends and I went and donated.  I just got a tattoo from Steve Easley at Sacred Tiki Tattoo, in fact it is the traditional rose and banner that says "Donate Blood" found on the Central California Blood Bank posters.




    You are no longer ineligible to donate blood just because you've gotten a tattoo!

    You can now donate with no deferral due to tattoos. Stop in this week and help save someone's life.

    For more information on the change in policy, see the FAQ Sheet or give us a call at (559) 389-5433.


    6,000 pints of blood must be collected per month to meet the needs of patients in our Central Valley Community.
