Last month I published an article about HIV-centric tattoos, which introduced us to the biohazard symbol and scorpion as the most common tattoos chosen to identify being HIV-positive, but we also found other variations, such as the lightning symbol and wasp that also carry a positive connotation or energy. After publishing that article, a friend of mine mentioned something symbolic he did to feel closer to the virus and I thought it was a fantastic idea, so I did it too!

We both agree that getting a biohazard tattoo is something that appeals to the both of us, but since we are still HIV-negative, we don’t yet feel qualified to get inked with a biohazard symbol, as permanent ink is more of a symbol of achievement and we haven’t reached that level of positive success yet. That’s when he told me about what he did and said he was happy for me to do it too, plus he’s happy for me to share the information for anyone else who might be interested.

Some bug chasers celebrate becoming infected by getting a biohazard tattoo to show their POZ pride. Because HIV is a permanent health condition, a tattoo can be very symbolic based on its permanence. If you are on the bug chasing path and would like to connect with the energy of the virus and simultaneously express yourself to others, a piece of jewellery might be the perfect way to accomplish this to help you connect with the positive energy. As jewellery is not a permanent fixture, you can wear it whenever you want, plus it carries a physical energy that can have a spiritual or symbolic meaning. It comes down to personal choice, from the type of symbol, to the design, along with when and where you wear it.

Jewellery for anyone on the bug chasing path is a fantastic idea, because thinking about bug chasing is a mental thing, whereas attaching a piece of positive jewellery to your body adds a physical energy, which is very symbolic and can help you fully appreciate where you are at. There are also different designs you can choose from, so you can personalise your purchase and because the jewellery can be worn whenever you want, you can decide when the time is right. I take my pendant off when I am sleeping, even though I would love to keep wearing it all night, because the chain is very fine, so I’m worried it might break during the night.

You can find biohazard pendants and dog tags from a variety of online sellers, but I got mine from Tioneer, as they offer international shipping. It took a few weeks to reach me, as I opted for standard shipping, but delivery times will vary depending on your location. I’m not suggesting that you buy a pendant or dog tag from a particular seller or even at all, as I don’t generate income from product referrals or recommendations, I just wanted to share this information with you, because I do feel as though jewellery can be a great stepping stone into the world bug chasers are exploring. The next biohazard tattoo dog tag pendant I’m thinking about getting comes from CockEye Kink and the direct link to their biohazard dog tag pendant can be found at their Etsy store and I cannot wait, as it looks even better than the polished one I purchased the first time around.

I think I might get one of these to wear in certain spaces to indicate my Interest in being converted. Especially in certain spaces. Maybe that can be a way for Pre poz neg men chasing to indicate that they want the gift

I ordered a biohazard dogtag (white image on a black tag) after reading this story, and it came the next week. I’m still neg but hope to wear it as a sign of being poz friendly my next time at the sex club. Thanks for the suggestion. Was hoping to get a scorpion symbol on the tag, but maybe if I convert, I can get that as a real tatt.

Pretty cool, really. A more modern take on simply wearing the old hankies!

I’m very open and will disclose my HIV+ status to just about anyone. I wanted to be poz and I totally accept the virus and love the power it gives me on a purely personal level. I don’t have any urge to poz someone and I say to anyone who asks “my poz was for me and that gives me a buzz” I don’t need to spread it to feel like that action somehow vindicates the HIV+ in me. It works it magic on my system and through my body. I can almost feel it coursing through my veins as it replicates and mutates. And of course, that most powerful thing the virus does when its unmedicated is destroy your immune system. I went for a few blood tests privately where a count of my CD4 was shown. I found it a huge turn on to see the number dropping, it started at just under 600 and the last test I had about a year ago it was hovering around 350. As you say Jason the biohazard tattoo is a permanent mark that says I am infected with HIV+ I am proud poz and like going to a sauna to show my status off to anyone who sees me with it.

I converted and became poz just over two years ago. I’m detectable and not on meds and love every minute of being toxic and allowing the virus to work its magic through my system. Always knew that I would get a biohazard tattoo and decided to place it on my left pectorals (or man boob in my case). I chose this position because I can see it from the corner of my eye when showering or swimming and during sex when naked. The other more compelling reason is this is the mark of me being HIV+ it is a permanent mark for all to see my status and even if I start meds and become undetectable I will still remain HIV+.

Great idea – I just ordered mine!

Thanks for the article!

Those are cool, and dog tags on a man are so sexy/masculine! Hmmm, Christmas is coming too, that could be a good gift! I don’t like jewelry much myself, but I’d love to have one of those dangling in my face when getting fucked missionary hehe

I would wear a biohazard dog tag pendant to remind me of the hiv status I want to achieve.
