Medic Alert Tattoo

Published:

Today I got my last Christmas Gift from my boyfriend. I needed a medic alert bracelet, but one of my allergies is metal, so I researched my options. In the end, this was the best. (Even my doctor agreed that it was a good idea.)

I went to the same artist who did my first two tattoos. He had never heard of a medic alert tattoo before, but was interested to work with me on it. When he finished it, he took a picture of it (something he didn't do for my dragons, though, they aren't finished yet).

I had this tattoo designed so that it had minimal impact and visibility but so it would be visible and legible in a situation where it is necessary. As I'm aiming to go into business, this needed to be as low impact as possible. When my arm is sideways (relaxed at my side, typing at the computer, etc) it is almost completely invisible.

EDIT:
The tattoo is complete with a "chain bracelet" around my wrist with the medic alert symbol on top of my wrist, as seen here.

That's incredibly clever, and a good way to work problems. Kudos.

This is actually really helpful, because my friend has epilepsy and a metal allergy, so this is something I'll recommend for her to research.
