Romantic Tattoo: Man Gets Pre-Wedding Insulin Pump Ink To Honor His Diabetic Fiancée

Regardless of your feelings about tattoos, you have to admit this one is pretty darn romantic.

On Wednesday, Reddit user Kerra Chadwick posted a photo of her friend Hannah Smith, who has struggled with diabetes her whole life, and her fiancé Zach Ruth. After Smith was hospitalized in 2010, Ruth told her he wanted to get a tattoo of an insulin pump on his hip that resembles the real-life pump she wears. Check out his ink in the photo below:

"When I saw the picture, it just touched my heart," Chadwick told HuffPost Weddings in an email. "I've known Hannah for several years and she's struggled with diabetes her whole life. She had a pretty close call and fell into a diabetic coma at one point. Luckily she pulled through and is now embracing her 'fashion accessory.' She is very admirable and her fiancé Zach is so incredibly supportive. To let her know she wasn't alone, he made the sweet gesture."

Ruth and Smith are set to tie the knot in September 2013.

What do you think of Ruth's gesture? Let us know in the comments.
