For the better part of five decades, people with chronic health problems or severe allergies have worn MedicAlert bracelets to alert emergency staff to their conditions. But now there’s a new trend, with some people turning to medical tattoos.
Emma Bortolon Vettor, 19, is one of those who has a tattoo to tell the world she has a medical condition. The tattoo names her condition (called chronic adrenal hyperplasia) and the medication she needs in case of an emergency.
Vettor says that after years of going through plenty of MedicAlert bracelets and chains, she decided a tattoo on her arm would be the best way to ensure she’s always properly identified.
"I find I lose my bracelet, and they tend to break. So why not have a tattoo?" she says.
She says the tattoo cost her about $150, while her MedicAlert registration carries a $39 annual fee. But Vettor also remains registered with MedicAlert and has her registration number included in the tattoo, just in case.
