Almost a year ago I posted a topic on here for ideas for a tattoo to represent my gluten free transformation, and silly me I forgot to post a picture of it completed! So here it is. It's a phoenix to represent coming from being sick to a new healthy lifestyle. Anybody else have tattoos that represent their diagnoses? or even just any meaningful tattoos2d1w77b.jpg

No tattoos here ( I fear my tastes are too shallow to stick with something for life). Yours is lovely. Has it helped? Just nosy :)

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

I forget its there sometimes honestly lol, its definitely a reminder though to keep myself healthy and happy :] hurt like crazy to get it though, especially on my spine that was killer but it was worth it in my opinion.

I don't have any tattoos yet but having a tattoo to remind you of your journey to good health is great idea :)

I have 7 tattoos and counting. In April will be my year of being diagnosed and being gluten free, so I'll be getting my tattoo for that in April. I joke around with my mom calling it my "gluten edge", like being straight edge, so I'm going to get an "XXX" but the X's are going to be wheat stalks. :P
