Diabetes Tattoo

So I hate to wear braceletts/necklaces… etc. I remember someone somewhere saying they were going to Tatoo “Diabetic” on their wrist. I don’t really like tatoos either but I could be tempted to do this… I just want a cool design! Any ideas??


Go over to http://www.diabeticrockstar.com – another Ning network. There are one or two groups there discussing both normal and diabetes tattoos. You might get some inspiration from there.

The only problem with diabetic tattoos would be that paramedics aren’t trained to spot them like they are the id bracelets/necklaces. Check out this page for some cool bracelets that are different from the chains. http://www.hopepaige.com/pc/viewCat_P.asp?ProdSort=0&idCategory=8&page=3&iPageSize=5

Lol, I’ve been wondering the same thing for months! My friends think I’m just weird. My best friend is a paramedic however and she says she wouldn’t recommend it because it may not be spotted, and while she would take it seriously, some wouldn’t.

They think that black ink can surpress the immune system, leading to more issues. Blue might have lower risk for infection, if your prone to that.
