Medizinische Geräte als Tattoos

Matt hat als Kind so viel Zeit im Krankenhaus verbracht, dass er eine Obsession für medizinische Instrumente entwickelt hat, die ihm damals das Leben retteten. Deshalb hat er sich die Dinger tättowieren lassen.

Vice: What’s with the medical equipment obsession?
Matt: I’ve always liked medical instruments, probably from spending a lot of time as a child in hospitals. I’m not scared of hospitals or their instruments.

Vice: What did you get first?
Matt: I got my diabetic tattoo before I went on holidays to Mexico to traipse around on donkeys. It says “I am an insulin dependent diabetic. If I seem drunk give me sugar.”

Vice: How many instruments have you got?
Matt: I’ve got a tethoscope, reflex hammer, otoscope, sphygmomanometer, forceps, a bone saw, oxygen mask, latex gloves, surgical string, skin grafting razor, trephine skull drill, a medical warning label, and a syringe.
