Diabetes tattoos are forever
I can picture the day (hopefully not too soon) when my daughter asks me if it's OK for her to get a tattoo. Now her mom and I don't have any body art and kinda cringe at the prospect of our kids getting inked.
Cassie is an accomplished debater. I'm sure she'd pose a hypothetical question like: "What if the tattoo said I have diabetes?" That way, it could eliminate the need for a medic alert bracelet.
I've seen some of nice ones, like the one pictured here by Erin from the Tu Diabetes forums. But tattoos are permanent. And I'd like to think she wouldn't need that tattoo forever.
