A Walking Operation (The Game): Man Got Tattoos of Medical Equipments That Saved His Life

0

As a child, Matt spent a lot of time in hospitals - so as an adult, he decided to do an homage of sorts: he got tattoos of the various medical equipments that saved his life!

Helen J. Grose of Viceland blog has the interview:

Vice: What’s with the medical equipment obsession?

Matt: I’ve always liked medical instruments, probably from spending a lot of time as a child in hospitals. I’m not scared of hospitals or their instruments.

Vice: What did you get first?

Matt: I got my diabetic tattoo before I went on holidays to Mexico to traipse around on donkeys. It says “I am an insulin dependent diabetic. If I seem drunk give me sugar.”

Vice: How many instruments have you got?

Matt: I’ve got a tethoscope, reflex hammer, otoscope, sphygmomanometer, forceps, a bone saw, oxygen mask, latex gloves, surgical string, skin grafting razor, trephine skull drill, a medical warning label, and a syringe.

I hate Tattoos!! Most people get them when they are young and regret it the rest of their lives.

I remember when I was a kid there was a guy that had got drunk and tattooed a pencil thin mustache on his upper lip. For YEARS we would point and laugh at him.
