Tattoos are embraced by the rebellious few-this statement has become null and void as many individuals, even those with diabetes are opting for this body art form that involves the use of needles to inject ink under the skin.
Being a diabetic does not prevent you from having a tattoo. There are few pointers to bear in mind before getting yourself a tattoo:
Some risks involved in getting a tattoo include allergic reactions, skin infection, scarring, exposure to risk of blood-borne diseases, increased time for healing wounds and the pain involved in getting the tattoo removed. It is critical that you are 100% sure of getting yourself a tattoo as having the tattoo removed is painful, expensive and hard. Also, if you get a tattoo in some unresearched place where the needle is not properly sterilized, you might even be affected by HIV, Hepatitis B or C. On the other end of the spectrum, tattoos have been used in the biomedical industry to help physicians monitor chronic heart conditions, dehydration level and blood glucose issues as well.

After getting yourself a tattoo, if you find yourself unwell or doubt any infection, it is better to get in touch with a general physician who can investigate your problem.
