CD/Ileostomy Tattoos?

I've been wanting to get a Crohn's disease tattoo or something for my ileostomy. Anybody out there have any? Couldn't really find any good ones while searching...

So you got me interested. Did a search. I found this one. It's on someone's wrist, it appears. Kind of nice.

Hi Spooky,

I do not have one to do with an ostomy, and my daughter is a tattoo artist...!!

If you do a search on here, you will find some talk but not a lot of pics.

If you do get a stoma-related tattoo, you will be obliged to post pics. It's in the rules... 🤣

Yeah, I was going to say something with a purple ribbon. I know it represents Crohn's.

It says I'm still standing. They took a lot of my insides out. That's the reason for the tree with some of its branches missing. The cancer ribbon at the bottom.

I have a 13" scar from my sternum to my groin. Waiting for it to fully heal up. Tempted to cover it with a full-length zip tattoo.

Just some advice... please don't put it near your stoma. Your stoma will more than likely be moved around in the future.

I have a Crohn's ribbon butterfly.

Hi. I have a purple ribbon on my arm. A friend did it for me. I've got Crohn's/Colitis.

Scars are like tattoos, but with a better story.
