    Just wondering if there are any rules on tattoos as a student nurse during placements (NHS hospitals/private hospitals, community work/care homes etc). I would like a small outline tattoo on my wrist but not if it will affect my chances of getting a nursing job/ affect my placements.
    Thanks

    I'm not sure about nursing but generally best to get tattoos in areas that can be covered up, just in case.

    Don't get a wrist tattoo. Due to movement in the wrist they need touching up loads. Better to get one at the bottom of your bicep. Can be easily covered and it's a place few people get them. I got one there and I love it.

    Ahhh ok that's fine then. I'm sure you can easily cover it up. And tattoos aren't as taboo as they once were. I have 5 and they've never caused me problems.
