Kind of silly question, Stem cell transplant and tattoos

I had a stem cell transplant 6 months ago for Multiple Myeloma.  I am 33, female (yeah way off from the average MM patient).  I was stage II at diagnosis, had 4 rounds of velcade/ dex then had stem cell collection and my transplant.  After my transplant I had "very good response" but still detectable m-spike.  Several months ago I achieved remission with no M- spike detectable.  My blood levels are good, and low normal range.  I've had low white count but it's getting better.  My question is I want to get a tattoo with a girl friend over the holidays.  I don't see my doctor until January.  Am I still imune compromised?  I am not on any medications at the moment, and not taking any maitenence chemo or steroids.
