Tartoo Pump Smiley 4Pk

​Safe and effective for pump site management.

Product Description
Safe and effective for pump site management. 

One Tartoos for Pumpers package includes four easy-to-use 4″ x 6″ tattoo grids, each with eight images.

Tartoos, short for 'targeted tattoos' are temporary tattoos that offer a simple solution to a daily challenge; making sure to inject, injectable medications in different places to avoid lipohypertrophy. In plain English, that’s a lump under the skin caused by a buildup of fat from too many injections in the same place.

Terminology aside, the reason to vary injection sites for people with diabetes is simple; using the same site too often may cause slower insulin absorption and could affect glycemic control.

How to Use
Tartoos are printed on a 4″ x 6″ inch sheet with a removable clear plastic face and a paper backing that will pull away from the images when thoroughly wetted with a cloth for about 30 seconds. 

The recommended method for removing Tartoos is to use an antiseptic wipe just before an injection is administered. This has the advantage of disinfecting the site prior to injection. In addition, with the Tartoos image wiped away, the injection location is no longer marked by the Tartoos as available for another injection.
