Done this several times in the glutes and it never hurt me. Actually, as long as I knew I was injecting in the correct spot on the glutes (upper outide quadrant), if there was a little blood when aspirating, I injected anyway. Never had a problem either way, assuming you are injecting in the correct spot of the glute, quad, etc....
