I am interested in people that have or see people deal with visible tattoos in their med school, rotations, etc. I have searched and haven't found people addressing this issue, just people fighting about tattoos. Please don't respond with "don't do it." i have read that doing the search. What i am looking for is med students that have visible tattoos if wearing short sleeves (forearm, wrist, etc.) and how this affected them in medical school and rotations. I am looking for experience. It doesn't have to be direct experience. If you see it or know about it, I would like to hear. My reason is I want to be a doctor more than anything. I love tattoos. Not because they are cool and hip, but because, done correctly, they can be beautiful. I have a full sleeve tattoo. It is just abstract art. Nothing offense or anything. I love it and get compliments all the time. If i wear a long sleeve t-shirt and lift my arm up, you can see the bottom on my wrist. If i wear a button down shirt, you can't see anything at all. I am fully aware how the general public and the medical community view tattoos as a whole. But as i said, i am looking for experience. I also got the tattoo knowing very well i may have to wear long sleeves everyday for the rest of my life, and I am ok with it. So does anyone have any insight? Like i said, i did a search so i know i will have to cover it for interviews, some rotations, etc.
