Diabetes-monitoring tattoos are an innovation which helps diabetics manage their glucose levels and stay healthy. In fact, MIT researchers found that nanoparticle ink can easily and immediately help users identify when their body's glucose level fluctuates to unsafe levels.

Further, the diabetes-monitoring tattoos fade every six months, reminding you to be re-injected with the glucose monitoring ink while minimizing the usual permanence of getting inked.
