No problem: Will not interfere with your procedure and may it go well and successfully.

Generally yes: Make sure it is performed at a clean tattoo center with a certified artist that uses sterile procedures. Also, be sure to ask the surgeon, just to be sure s/he agrees and approves, as they know your medical case best.
