This category celebrates life with diabetes through a comedic twist. The artistic value of the tattoo is variable. No two individuals with diabetes are the same and neither are these tattoos. For them, humour is a way of cheating death.
Here’s what they’re saying:
“I wanted to come up with something that was a tribute to my diagnosis because that day obviously changed my life. But then also sort of put a funny twist on it. And so, I thought about, you see the expiration, like stamps on produce at the store. And I wanted to put in the expiration date for my pancreas.”
“Didn’t want the traditional type but wanted something different.”
