As you are getting ready to send your children back to school tattoos are usually not on your mind. These tattoos could save your child's life.

Some children will be returning to classrooms with a temporary tattoo labeling their food allergies. Children with food allergies are increasing, therefor schools have to be more aware of every food that enters a lunchroom or classroom.

There was a recent incident in California where a 13 year old girl died from a peanut allergy at summer camp. Because of incidents like this one, Michele Welsh created a company called SaftyTat. SaftyTat offers temporary tattoos and long lasting write on stickers for children with allergies.

If you don't want to put a tattoo, even if it is temporary on your child, the company Allermates makes wristbands, dog tags, and other products to help alert others to your child's allergies.
