No, the hose (tail) is held against you by the tape, with the hole 
going around the central hub. The "introducer needle" is left in until after
the tape is placed over the wings on each side of the hub.

If by "tail" you meant the Teflon canula around the "introducer needle"
it goes against your body after removing the tape cover from ONLY the
small central base, followed by the larger separate tape with the hole in it
OVER the base.
