Default Re: blood donations after cruising FYI

I was also in Belize last August and found out that I cannot donate for one year either. However, I had planned to go get a tattoo after donating (which they turned me down for) but THEN I was told that the Red Cross has changed their policy on tattoos...used to be you could not donate one year after getting a tattoo (which made no sense to me...the place I always go to is VERY clean!), now they WILL take you after getting a tattoo if it is at a licensed facility......SO I went and got my Tinkerbell tattoo and will be back in August after my one year after being in Belize....

Go figure!
