Brief Answer:
Vibrations will not harm screws and plate.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
You had the surgery on your leg more than 15 years ago. It must have healed well by now. Any vibrations due to tattoo machines will not loosen the screws and plate. No need to worry. You can safely go ahead with the procedure.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
