Piercings – I have just had a piercing. Can I donate?

Maybe, it depends on the type of piercing you've had.

Ear piercing:

If the piercing was done with clean, single-use disposable equipment, you can only donate plasma for 24 hours after having it done. Following that, there are no restrictions.

All other piercings:

If the piercing was done with clean, single-use disposable equipment, you can only donate plasma for four months after having it done. Following that, there are no restrictions.

Whether it’s your ear or any other type of piercing, if the piercing wasn’t done with clean, single-use equipment, or you’re not sure, you’ll need to wait at least 4 months before you can donate. In this case, call us on 13 14 95 before you book an appointment to check that you’re ok to donate.
