Follow-up to tattoos and an ICE

Thanks for the comments. I have never been a big fan of tats and I am 62. As the post said, it would be my ‘first’. But ‘Old Sparky’ has given me a reason to think about getting one.

I like the zipper with ‘open here’ from Smart Redd and ElectricFranks knob with ‘high – low’”.

Maybe a ‘switch with on – off’ and a ‘knob with volume’.

The comments have pretty much convinced me that the area directly over the ICD are taboo for tattoos.

So may put it on the right side with the wording ‘Shown out of position for clarity’.

Later, Charlie


Right idea

I like the "Out of position for clarity".

Or you might have "My pacer moved"


not for me

I've got the defib., and I am [was] a general contractor and I heard the reason I couldn't use a chainsaw and jaackhammer was not because of the motors like other tools. But from the vibrations that will be sent through my body..which would cause my ICD to think my heart was going into v-tach. I think the vibration so close to implant site would not be good; [but if ya' do it, let me know if ya' got zapped]
How about " You light up my life" or " biohazard sign"
I'd probably do the "Jolly Roger" - Skull & crossbones over it.

Great Idea for what kind you want to get. Iwas thinking along the same lines of something like that. I never got a chance to ask the doc. if it was safe to get one around it or even near it. If you shoule find out some time soon Let me know and I will do the same. I just got mine on 06-05-2008.
