It's risky when you get into the shoulder of the tire, and really if it's anywhere near the sidewall you probably won't find any shop willing to do it, or you find a place like Flylow mentioned and they'll tell you it's a bad idea and then do it for you. It's a really easy job to do yourself, just take the tire off, deflate, get nail out and put in the patch, reinflate.

If you've got the money to spare I'd recommend replacing the tire, if money's tight patch it and hope for the best.
