If permanent seed brachy then in theory 6 months should be safe but best to check with your radiation team where you were treated. I wouldn’t want to put the tattoo artist at risk, especially if she was a she and could possibly be pregnant.

Where on your body are you planning on getting the tattoo?

Think I may be being a little too cautious then as I had the permanent seed brachytherapy done January 2016

But never had a tattoo done before
