My dad's old Harley St specialist always did blood tests from ear lobes. I was
terrified at the thought, but I had it done by him once and was amazed that it
didn't hurt at all. And this was before the days of finger prickers - just stab
a lancet into the skin!
 But I would have great difficulty in getting the blood
on the strip, even if you don't have the meter attached to it! 

The Scandinavians also put infusion sets in the most horrible places.....
