Temporary Medical Alert Tattoos
You may have read a recent post of mine about PumpPeelz. They create custom design patterns to fit over your blood sugar meters, Omnipod pumps and continuous glucose monitor systems. It seems that they are also jumping on the bandwagon of diabetes awareness with their new Temporary Medical Alert tattoos!
In my opinion, it is important to be accepting of having diabetes, and making others aware of my medical issues. I have a medial ID bracelet permanently tattooed to my wrist. Click here to see what my medical tattoo looks like.
Pump Peelz explains, “Because we aren’t brave enough to get a real one. There is some truth to this. But really, we thought for those fun trips to the beach or even just to a friend’s house it would be nice to have a temporary solution that is inexpensive and won’t get lost.” I think its a wonderful idea for children (and anyone who’s not old enough or brave enough to get a real tattoo) to use these temporary medical ID tattoos.
My tattoo has helped to spark up a conversation with complete strangers while at the store and with ladies beside me at the nail salon. The tattoo has helped me to voice “hey, I have type 1 diabetes!! If something is wrong, that could be the problem.” These temporary tattoos would do much of the same.
