Now that's some quality snark Subby.

I'd hate it if the "hey, you've herpes" tattoo suddenly appeared one morning.  It would probably be straight across the forehead too.

How are they going to get that honeycomb to look good as a tribal, barbed wire or a skull?

I thought tattoos were already an indication of hepatitis.

Is "Poor Impulse Control" a disease?  Mine would likely say that.

What about tattoos that let you know if they are sadistic rapist pigs?

In no way am I against the advancement of medical technology...and while these grants are (IMHO) certainly more valuable to the public than say a grant for "Advancement of the Perverted Arts" - the question must be posed...should an institution collecting on average $200K from each of their customers (students) be eligible for publicly funded grants? I realize faculty, scholarships, and other administrative costs eat away at that sum...but I doubt any department at an ivy league university is hurting for cash. I can understand a small directional school (Northeastern West Alabama State) receiving funds to develop a medical program...but a prestigious learnin' institution...?

I've been an advocate of mandatory ass or genital tattooing of people with incurable STD's.

I don't think students should be asked to pay for research being done in the university.

But, at the same time, students don't want to go to a non-research, teaching universities.

Nature already has something like that that suddenly appears when you have that disease.

It might be nice to get a tattoo that would warn if you're developing Alzheimers.

It's funny but I was thinking about putting my med info into a tat. It would be my first, I wonder how useful it would be in an emergency situation? I ride my bicycle solo most of the time and if I was hit would the ambulance people read any tats if they are prominently displayed, maybe left pec or inside wrist?

Something like last name, blood type, organ donor, no allergies

I hope some of them would say "Clamydiot"

"I thought, if she can have a passive tattoo that says 'I have asthma,' why not have an active tattoo that can continuously track your health?"

That sounds like something from a standup act.

The Tattoolist Disease?

/too obscure for fark

Gee. Didn't someone else use tattoos for identifying the weak?

Funny, my terrorism threat level tattoo is orange.

Glad I didn't go with the South Jersey Shore model.

Miltary guys do that. They get their dog tag info tatted on their sides in case they get blown up they can identify the torso
