    Hi all!

    I’ve been looking for a tattoo that represents my diabetes, something feminine and internationally recognisable.

    Have you got a tattoo to represent your diabetes?
    Have you got any tattoos? Feminine or not, would love to see!

    Please post for inspiration below xx

    I've got 6 tattoos, none related to my diabetes..
    I'd love to show pics but would mean getting my fat arms and my b00bs out.

    My first was a wolf howling at the moon
    Second was a wolf's head
    Third was a wolf surrounded by a bat, engulfed in its wings sort of thing
    Fourth was my Milo - a dog that meant so much to me. He's above my heart and it's coming up to his anniversary of passing over the bridge
    Fifth (the one I regret) a bracelet of skulls heads and barbed wire around my wrist. (regret cus I went back street)
    Sixth is an hour glass with my daughters names on

    I am planning on another for my grandchildrens names but as one is on its way I cant until we know a name (and that could change)

    And as I'm now past 50 I'm finding my skin is sagging so I think any other would have to be arranged somewhere the fat bits arent taking over
