I have a gecko on my calf.  I got it 10-11 years ago when I was not 
in good control, was on two shots of NPH/R a day and was not checking 
my BG.  My tattoo is a good size and I had no problems healing.  At 
one point each ear was pierced five times.  The last hole, pretty far 
up the lobe, hurt like crazy and ended up getting infected so I took 
those out.  Eventually I kept losing all of my earrings and took the 
last of them out for good over a year ago.  I have a feeling all 4 
holes in each ear are closed up now, because I haven't worn anything 
for awhile.  Only the 4th & 5th holes in each ear were done after my diagnosis.
