Tattoos Save Lives
As if tattoos weren’t edgy and cool enough, now they can actually save your life! There’s a growing trend of people opting for tattoos in place of medical ID bracelets. Diabetic patients have complained that the ID bracelets are too costly with an upward price of $1000 and has the potential of losing them which is why they are choosing to get inked instead.
The tattoos work just as well as the bracelets, alerting health professionals on whether the patient is insulin dependent during an emergency.
Local tattoo artist Gab Szarvas spoke to Sidd Sharma about the new customers coming his way.
