In brief: Yes

About 1% of humankind has at least mild vWF.
If you're presently being managed on medication by a hematologist, get his/her thoughts. If it's not been a huge problem for you, and your physician has released you, then go ahead. vWF involves the blood itself and its platelets, while the tattoo involves the deep skin.
