If you have the pic on your drive you click on the second little icon doo-dad above the window, immediately to the right of where it says "link" and it will prompt you to either upload a photo or to use the tab to put a link to an online photo! Good luck w/ your inking!

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!
