My general career plan is to become a doctor - still unsure on specialities and whatnot but the goal is surgery. I've been wanting a tattoo for a while and finally have the money so I was going to go for it. I was wondering if it's frowned upon for doctors to have visible tattoos on their hands/arms? Would it make it harder to get a job? Is it considered unprofessional? I'm female, if that changes anything.

It will probably be looked down on not gonna lie. You should probably get a tattoo in a place not visible. Like upper arm or bicep.

I have one on the upper arm and plan on getting more. My rule of thumb is don't get one which will be visible in a scrub top, which tend to have quite short sleeves and a deep v-neck.
The doctors I have seen with tattoos in visible places have more often than not covered them up with plasters while in work - which is a lot of hassle.

That's quite helpful, thanks for clearing it up.
