I enjoyed looking at these diabetic tattoos. I read that the reasons many of the owners got them was because they didn't want to wear a medical alert bracelet. I think if that's your reason, you have to be honest and say that you really want a tattoo. If I don't want to wear a bracelet or necklace, I just... don't.
Part of me wonders... maybe I'm wrong in my decision on this, but, from my experience it isn't necessary. I guess I've always felt that it's my job to protect myself by being really careful with insulin.
What do you think about them? (not tattoos, medical alert jewelry)
What do I do? I have a card in my wallet that says that I'm a diabetic. Is that enough? So far no one has ever seen it.
If I were to ever get a tattoo, it would be a conversation starter. I love to have conversations about diabetes, so I guess it's pretty likely that I might get one like that. But, I'm not really a tattoo person.
