RA Ink

Getting a tattoo is a deeply personal thing. I haven’t ever gotten one myself, but I know lots of people who have, including my daughter. A lot of thought goes into each tattoo that people get. They’re very meaningful.

Last year, Healthline.com set up a slideshow highlighting the rheumatoid arthritis-specific tattoos of several RA patients. Those photos are a powerful reminder that each of


Dorothy Berenger’s RA tattoo.

us is stronger than this disease, and not only that–they’re a great way to raise awareness about it.

Well, Healthline.com is putting together a new RA-tattoo slideshow right now, and they’re looking for photos. If you have an RA-related tat you’d like to show the world that illustrates your ability to rise above this disease and help raise awareness at the same time, please consider submitting a photo of it to Healthline.

It’s easy. Just email  a clear photo (at least 285×285 in .jpg or .png format) of  your tattoo, plus a short description of it, with the subject “My RA tattoo,” to nominations@healthline. That’s all you have to do to have your tat featured on the website.

I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s collection of beautiful RA tattoos!

  1. The email address to send pics of tattoos is not complete. What is the complete email address? Thanks.


  2. I would send mine,, except of course I do not have one or two or any number. In the diabetes world, medical tattoos are more popular and because of insulin somewhat practical. Yeah no, I still do not want one.

    I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes.org blog page for the week of June 27, 2016.
