Ask your doc.: You are doing well, why take the chance of getting an infection by a cosmetic procedure? I don't think the risk is worth it. Talk to your doctor and get his/her opinion.

No: Tattoos are form of self-mutilation. These are bad enough for a person in good health and likely to be doubly bad for you. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
