Patients are turning to tattoos to inform Doctors of allergies and medical conditions.

FOX's Colleen Cappon explains the permanent ink trend in today's Housecall For Health:

Getting 'inked' has long been a permanent way for people to express themselves. But now, some are relying on tattoos for medical reasons. Medical tattoos can warn first responders about health conditions, like allergies or chronic diseases, and even end of life wishes.
