Is that it in your profile pic? I like the skull caduceus mashup. It looks to be very nicely done!

If you have the small of your back tattooed with this, like in the pic w/ the article, how do you check your blood sugar? Ask somebody? I'd like to have a tattoo that would tell me my BG, whether it was temporary or not!

Whatever happened to this? Has anyone heard about any developments?
I am assuming they are not accurate enough but it would be pretty cool to have a temp tat that also would indicate where we are at and if we need to go check sugars...

Those are both great! I like the inked look of the Someday one, although don't you have to make the ribbon blue or it's some other disease? Or is it just the light making it grey? I like the location of CML Peterson's dragon too. I have one on each bicep and have been contemplating where else I might put one and that's a good location?
