Myth: I can’t donate if I got a piercing recently.
Medically reviewed on January 1, 2023.
Here’s the Truth
You can donate the same day as getting a new piercing if it was performed using a single-use device. If your piercing was performed using anything other than single-use equipment, please wait three months from date of the piercing to donate. If your piercing is infected, wait until you complete your antibiotics and are free of symptoms before donating again.
