So Others May Live

Submitted by Chelsea Cibelli



This tattoo pairs a medically accurate sinus rhythm EKG with an italicized expression commonly associated with the emergency services.

Tips: To ensure perfect medical accuracy, ask your artist to keep all P waves equal in shape and low in amplitude.  Also make sure your QRS complexes are proportioned with the remainder of the EKG (This is a difficult thing to eyeball on skin without the luxury of EKG paper grid lines. When in doubt, ask a paramedic, nurse, or doctor who frequently reads and interprets EKGs.).
