Default Diabetes and tattoo

Another question from me:
A friend of mine is diabetic Type 1 for almost 5 years. She is dying to get a tattoo but she's afraid because diabetics have troubles with healing wounds due to the high glucose level which helps infections spread.
Is here anybody who is diabetic and who has a tattoo???

Ive had type 1 diabetes since I was 12 (23 years now) and have 4 tattoo's and 4 piercings.
There is absolutely no problem with a diabetic getting tattoo's/piercings or anything else for that matter.
I would say do NOT get tattoo's below the knee's or on the hands/fingers due to the problems diabetics are prone to with nerve damage and poor circulation. Good blood glucose control helps with the healing process .... and I will add, all of my tattoo's healed quicker than anyone else's I know and I got no scabbing whatsoever!
Diabetes revolves around your life, your life does not revolve around diabetes

Also to add ... if your friend is worried about injection sites over tatoo's, I inject with no problems on my arm with a tattoo there (but remember they should change sites regulary, I switch between arms, legs and tummy)

This is true. Although there are some who made it like one of the users here,I suggest before having a tattoo to have the opinion of your doctor. Just to make sure.

If you are fit, and your control is good, then your risks from having a tattoo are the same as for anyone else. These are the risks of infection at the site if the injections, the pain of the procedure, and the problems associated with removal of the tattoo if you get fed up with it; they are permanent and much harder to remove than to have done.
