Allergy Tattoos For School Kids – Good Or Bad Idea?

 

facebook

SafetyTat is a company that makes removable tattoos for kids who have severe allergies, as well as “If Lost Call…” tattoos. This school year, some kids are returning to class wearing these with their medical issues stamped on their skin for their own protection.

These are becoming pretty popular this school year after what happened in California with the horrible death of a 13-year-old girl with a peanut allergy at a Sacramento summer camp.

The issue that some people have with these “Warning Labels” is that they could make kids a target for bullying.

This is a concern stated by American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology spokesperson, allergist Kevin McGrath. McGrath tells yahoo.com “A lot of kids do get bullied at school about their food allergies, so there is some concern about whether this might give more ammunition to kids,”

So, what do you think of these allergy tats? Great idea to keep kiddos with severe allergies safe, or bad idea because it might make kids a target for bulling?
