Re 99. Donate Blood.

If you are based in the UK they have recently changed the rules regarding blood donation and tattoos - you now only have to wait 4 months after getting a tattoo to be able to give (and you have to wait that long anyways to give blood again)

I got my first tattoo a few days after giving blood so that I will be able to give again in 4 months and get my new tattoo afterwards :)

Oh and well done on your list so far, it seems to have gone ok, unlike mine and I feel other people, but hey we live and learn :)

Oooh, that is really interesting! They often have blood drives near where i both live and work, and it's been around 4 months since my last tattoo!

Thanks so much for the info! ^_^
