The Decorative Bandage

This morning I had to stop by the doctor's office and of course they wanted to do a little blood work. Afterwards the nurse kindly plastered me with a Garfield band-aid. I like Garfield just fine but have you ever stopped to wonder why they don't make decorative band-aids or a band-aid for adults that looks a little nicer than the standard taupe color? Through the years I have had to leave the doctor's office with band-aids such as Scooby or Hello Kitty but wouldn't you love to walk out wearing a Monet or a Renoir? Or have you ever thought about a lace trimmed or polka dot band-aid or even holiday band-aids? It seems that at one point band-aids came with stars and spots but I must have missed those year. I guess for now I will stick with the weird flesh-toned band-aid that just does the job. Somehow, though there is just not much fun in that.


  1. My daughter is a huge fan of the Hello Kitty bandage. Sounds strange, but sometimes as a "special treat," I buy her her very own box and she plays doctor/nurse with all of her dolls and animals. They all get one!
    Love 'em.

  2. I remember those fancy Band-Aid stars and spots! Waaaay back then. I also had a Little Golden "Nurse Nancy" book that came with fun designer band-aids in the back. Am I dating myself here?

  3. That's a great idea! Art on a band-aid!
    You've got something there!

  4. You are on to something here! You need to copyright this idea...seriously!

    My Dr has an ace bandage type thing that sticks to itself in multi colors....lime, raspberry, red etc...

  5. I've seen the bright pink/blue/yellow/purple ones but no grown-up styles. It's a great's not like we don't get hurt anymore ;)

  6. Haha I work for Johnson & Johnson but not group that makes Bandages! It's a great idea though!
