So I was planning on getting a medical-related tattoo for the last 6 years before my DM diagnosis. I love medicine to the point that I couldn't work in any other field, hence a tattoo ;). A few months after my Type 1 diagnosis, I want to shape this tattoo into an alert, but I still want to make it my own... Medicine as a career and something that now defines my day-to-day life.
As a teenager I wanted the Caduceus, not knowing that it really is a commercial symbol, not the true Greek origin for medicine.
Obviously the rod/staff of Ascelpius would help EMTs/ healthcare professionals identify the med alert best. But for some reason, I just don't like it by itself or into the hexagon thing (I have no idea what that is called).
The new international symbol: blue hollow circle could also alert someone. Do you guys think the new symbol is universal enough yet?
I would put Type 1 Diabetes around whatever symbol I choose...
What do you have?
Women: What do you have? Feminine enough?
If you haven't already noticed, I spend a lot of time/thought on my tattoos!
