Medical ID Tattoo

So I am seriously thinking of getting a tattoo similar to the one featured in this article. Mine would list both diabetes and asthma, as those are the conditions I have that are most likely to cause emergencies.

Only one problem. Placement.

I don't want it on my wrist where it would always be visible no matter what I wore. I'm thinking upper right bicep, but would EMTs think to look under a tee shirt sleeve, you know?

So. Maybe I should just get a new medic-alert bracelet.
