Air brushed tattoos for diabetics
I have heard of Air Brushed tattoos so that no needles are involved, just an air brushed paint that last between 4 to 6 weeks. Is this type of paint safe for a Diabetics skin?
I am not familiar with these paints. Theoretically, the main side effect of these paints to the skin would be an allergic reaction. There should be no specific issues related to your diabetes unless you become allergic to these paints.
