Thanks for any opinions in advance.
I personally would never get one in an easily-visible place, which I consider the wrist to be. However, I know at least a few people in my program who have tattoos on their wrists, ankles, and feet. If it can be covered with clothing, and if the content of the tattoo isn't terribly controversial or provocative, you should be ok.
