We're almost there!

Our launch date for the new TuDiabetes website has been moved back 24 hours

When you log into TuDiabetes tomorrow (April 21st) you will find yourself in our new home!

If you want to join the TuDiabetes community please send an e-mail to TuDiabetesAdmin@gmail.com. We will send you an invitation to join after the migration is completed.

Read about the migration and see images of the new site!

Basically, show off your tattoo, and maybe give everyone a short story.

The first photo is it the day after, the second is about 3 days after and a bit scabby. I like Japanese art so I'm going to have a full Japanese sleeve. So far I have my geisha, and my artist and I are currently working on a water scene. I also have wings on my hip that wrap to my back, no photo yet though.

my new addition just got it yesterday 3/21/12

Very nice job! Plus you are ripped! I need to do those mud races or something?

thank you AR I'm very happy with it :) yes you should deff try a mud race I've only done one, so I think its the weights that help with the "buffness?" lol

I love that! Great idea!

thanks Tee! Love all your art work its beautiful :)

This is 3 of 4 tattoos i have.
Purple ribbon is for support of all cancer's. My grandmother, two aunts, and myself had thyroid cancer.
Writing on my shoulder is for my brother, we are very close. Ten and a half months apart.
Santiago is for my grandfather who passed away, he loved music. As do i.
I want to get my left wrist done with the "type 1 diabetic"


hello everyone.. it's been a while since i posted here my first tattoo and my 2nd tats was finished a while ago.. im happy with it.. just never mind the fatness.. lol.. its a little bit bloody.. is that ok?

very cool chun :)

thanks a lot.. it healed perfectly even though i can't stop myself from scratching.. lol..

Hey everyone...here's mine (its on my left inside forearm):

Finally got the tattoo I've been waiting to get for 3 years. Jeremy Elledge of 3 7's Tattoo in Grants Pass Oregon inked it. Amazing. It is a variation of an Elvgren pin-up girl. She's holding an insulin syringe and a bottle of strips or meds. The diabetes awareness ribbon is surrounding her. I became diabetic while I was pregnant. Usually gestational diabetes goes away, but not in my case. Oh well. Now I can live up to my Sweet Mom 4 Life status. :)
