Yes: There is no contraindication to tattooing but just be sure that the art from the ink is something you really want since it will stay on you for a long time. For example, having one's BF's name on a tattoo is often not a good idea. Also consider not tattooing areas which cannot be covered by clothing just in case you have a job which is not compatible with your tattoo.

People who have tattoos always regret them as they get older. Better get temporary tattoos which can be washed off.
