In brief: Probably

As a plastic surgeon, I'm against tattoos in general but if you really must have one, I would make sure that you're antiseizure medication is on board, If anything like skin irritation has ever precipitated the seizure before.
It might be sporting to mention your history to the tattoo artist although I doubt anything is likely to happen
