Episode 074 - Diabetics Doing Tattoos with Chris Clement

Let’s give a warm welcome to Chris Clement (@twitchybetes on Twitter and @diabeticink on Instagram). Chris is the creator of Diabetic Ink and a 20-year T1D veteran. In this episode of the Diabetics Doing Things podcast, Chris and I dive into his diagnosis story as he shares the details common to many, but still his own. He shares an emotional journey, but a beautiful story, nonetheless, talking about his appreciation for life and the impact of a family diagnosis.

Check out why Chris started Diabetic Ink and learn about the depth of his care for diabetes and tattoos, and how he combines the two to help others. He aims to remove the stigma of diabetics getting ink and provides direction and ideas for others to follow when considering related tattoos. Overall, he’s a source of inspiration to those who want to use their bodies to share a little bit about themselves.
