Hello and welcome to our site! I have read on many sites about diabetics getting piercings. I don't remember anyone saying there was a problem. If you have poor control and infections are hard to heal then I would not advise a piercing. If you have good control and do not have any diabetic complications then I think it should be safe for you. You can always ask your doctor, maybe a phone call will be sufficient.

(I am very interested to see what people say. I had my belly done when I was 16, i took it out when I was 18. I am now 27 and want to do it again, I am not sure why lol. maybe a quarter life crisis?
