I don't see any reason why not.  I am on zoloft as well as several other meds and have gotten tattoos since (didn't even think to ask my doctor).  The tattoos healed normally after applying the unscented lotion to them for about a week.  They look great.  My biggest concern about it was being sure all the tattoo equipment used was STERILE, and my artist was more than happy to show me their autoclave, and the sterile envelopes the equipment was kept in, as well as the sterile gloves used.  All went well. :-) - Blu
