I have finally (FINALLY) gotten permission to get a tattoo, I’ve wanted one since I was 14. Nothing crazy, I’m not a biker or interested in marrying or looking like that weird lizard guy.

My mom is still being really protective, bless her, and to put her mind at ease or maybe make me be a little more reasonable I want to hear from all you out there!!

How many of you have tattoos?
What is the likeliness of having an infection?
Have you had an infection?
What are the signs you are getting an infection?
If you could do it over again would you?

Please answer those and pass along any other advice!

Thank you so much to all those who have taken the time to read this or reply! I’m looking forward to hearing all about your stories. If any of you have any thing you’d like to add or something funny and body art related please share!

hey heather, there is a whole group devoted to tattoos here on TuDiabetes. you should check it out!
