Any T1's with tattoo's? My endo discourages even though my A1C is fine.

I do have. I made it because my glucose was fine. It took a few days more to heal but I had no problemas.

Yes. I was very careful to watch for infection, but I had no problems.

my son's endo said he could get one, just need to make sure it doesn't get infected.

It's one of them things. More of a personal choice - if you get one, great, just make sure it doesn't get infected. If you don't, that fine too😀 I don't have any, I don't particularly want one - though I've seen quite a few cool, interesting ones

Tione- an A1c of 10 is way too high!!
