Can I still be allergic?

So, if I tested negative on a blood test and skin prick test for a potential allergen. Does it guarantee that I am not allergic to it?

No, it is not a guarantee that you are not allergic to that allergen. It only shows that at that moment, your body was not reacting to that specific substance.

Allergies are hard to pin down, it sometimes can take all types of tests to determine what is the problem, and even then, they can change almost overnight.
