From Flagstaff, Arizona, USA:

I would like to get a small tattoo on my hip. Is it possible for me to get a tattoo? If I was to go on the insulin pump, would it interfere?


Getting a small tattoo on the hip should not affect diabetes control nor should it make any difference to starting on an insulin pump.
