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.

thank you, I'm adding more art to my body in a couple months :)

if only i had more money, i'd have alot more ink. "TheOneType" i really respect and love the work you have done. very beautiful, like yourself.

thanks justin :)

Word - me too - just haven't totally decided what I'm going to do next!! :) A lot of the medi-ink has me thinking...

that's really cool, I missed it when it was posted but saw the other messages and very nice job with that!

This is my medi-alert tattoo :)

And this is my most recent addition - it is for my best friend/hubby and has a lot of special meaning for us...came out beautifully (if I do say so myself!).

wow bec it is indeed beautiful!! I havent been on the site in a while so hadnt seen it but I love it :)

Thanks so much OneType - I'm thrilled with how both the medi alert and the one on my neck turned out so nicely...already moved on to thinking of the next one...I'm hoping for a koi fish for my bday!

So I was reading through the posts and ran into my post from 2008. I've gotten two more tattoos since then. I'm getting another one on the 25th of this month.

Cool, let me know how it goes.

My first tattoo minutes after it was done. I'm a big fan of wolves and it took a while for me to decide on what I wanted for my first one. My next one will be on my wrist showing that I'm a T2 diabetic.
