Youre actually not allowed to donate for 12 months after getting a tattoo (or piercing) because some strains of hepatitis take 12 months to show up and if the needles used werent sterilised correctly its a risk of passing on the disease to the recipient, if someone told you 72 hours you need to report them to which ever state you live in's medical board, its false information which could be a public health risk.
