LIVING THE INKED LIFE WITH DIABETES

Published on January 2, 2017 by Elisha Neubauer

First, I would like to preface this article with one very important statement:

 

I am not a doctor.

 

While I’m sure that is a no-brainer, as it is probably pretty clear I’m just a writer with an adoration for tattoos, I thought it best to just throw it out there and get it out of the way.

 

So, again, I want to state that I am not a doctor.

 

Now, moving on...

 

When it comes to the subculture of the tattooed world, there is one thing that can be said for sure—it is a diverse and exciting culture. It is a world filled with a varied assortment of people from every walk of life, every age, race, and sexual orientation has joined the tattooed culture over the years. So, it should come as no surprise that there are people with certain medical afflictions who have also joined the movement. Diabetics are no exception.

 

Of course, with any serious medical condition, there are certain rules that have to be played by, followed to a tee, to avoid further complications. When it comes to getting a tattoo, there are a few extra precautions that need to be taken before going under the needle.
