Amazing Diabetes Tattoos And What They Mean!
What is T1?
The image of serpents wrapped around a staff is a familiar one in the medical field--this tattoo plays on that, but substitutes a syringe of insulin for the staff. The image is based on the Rod of Asclepius, which takes its name from the Greek god Asclepius, a deity associated with healing and medicinal arts in Greek mythology. Oh, and T1? It's shorthand for type 1 diabetes.
