I know this has been briefly discussed in other forums, namely medical students asking about repercussions of getting a hypothetical tattoo, but I'm curious about a more concrete example. I am a 3rd year MD student with slightly above-average stats, and I'm very interested in pursuing an anesthesia residency. I have tattoos on my bilateral forearms and, and I'm wondering if any residents or attendings can comment on whether this is a major red-flag. I know many programs give tours of the OR during interview day, and this necessitates dressing out into scrubs. Would it be odd to wear an under armour layer under the scrubs to avoid showing them? I don't mind wearing a scrub jacket or gown for the rest of my career, but I'd hate to think that I'm unable to match based solely on the fact that I have tattoos that can otherwise be covered by a gown. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has tattoos or has dealt with a similar situation.
