For this (sort of) Wordless Wednesday, I bring you the live tweeting and photo adventure of getting a diabetes tattoo. Big ups to Matt Manning at Monument Tattoos in Tallahassee, Florida for listening to what I was looking for and translating that into a wicked awesome piece of body art with a practical purpose. One of my low blood sugar tells is that I sometimes lose the ability to talk and communicate properly. This is especially problematic when I need to get someone’s attention and make them aware that I need a little help. The idea behind a diabetes tattoo was that it would be something that is always on me, and I could hopefully indicate (e.g., point to it, gesture at it, hit someone over the head with it) in the event that I need some assistance. And it would look awesome as sh**. Your diabetes may vary.
This tattoo, like its owner, is badass.
What Kim said.
I am counting on you to help me plan mine 🙂
Very cool! Love it!
I know I’ve said it before but i’ll say it again, I LOVE your tattoo!!!!! If I could do mine again, I’d get it bigger 🙂
Fabulous! Looks a lot like Bradford’s! (do you know Bradford?)
Badass doesn’t even BEGIN to cover it!!! WoW!!!
DUDE! i LOVE it! epic! 🙂
WHOA. That’s amazing! (And a helluva lot more reliable than a medical ID bracelet…)
yeah, that is super rad.
and nice BG while you had it done too! did you use EMLA cream before you had it done? L thinks she would use that if she ever got a tattoo!
Nice!! That looks awesome! Diabetic tattoo’s are becoming more popular, and i have had lots of comments on mine!
