    I’m looking into getting a tattoo very soon, the problem I have is what should it look like?

    Diabetes will be a part of me for the rest of my life, but I don’t want the tattoo to say “Hey, look at me, I have a lifethreatning disease!”.

    I want it there to remind me to take care of myself and that I’m in control.

    So when the day comes, that you get one shot a week/month/year, and it’s basically cured. It’s still there to remind me of the care my body needs.

    I’ve often considered getting a diabetes tattoo. I’ve got other “ink” and it’s never caused me any trouble, but I saw another comment one time on this topic that has changed my mind…tattoos are permanent. However unlikely, there’s that little glimmer of hope that my diabetes isn’t. I don’t want to jinx the cure by getting the tattoo! :)

    I have been diabetic for 18 yrs, I am 28 now. If i had been asked 10 yrs ago if I wanted a medic alert tattoo branding me of my diabetes…HECK NO! I don’t think any parent should make that choice for their child. I have struggled for years to accept this disease but now I am proud to be a diabetic. As hard as it is to embrace this, I have and I am most definitely getting a tattoo. I just have to design it. I already have 2 tats and multiple piercings and haven’t had an issue with anything healing.
