Any Medicine students/doctors opinion on visible tattoos?Watch
I'd generally avoid it tbh
Most reputable tattooers won't give you a hand tattoo if you're not already well inked. So if you're not tattooed already then this isn't something you need to worry about!
I would think about the most formal occasions you will have in your career - job interview for a competitive job with a panel of 3-4 senior doctors/professors, Royal College practical exams where its you examining a real patient with 2-3 senior doctors/professors watching your every move. Would you be worried that they might notice your tattoo? Do you think that might distract from the image you are trying to convey?
My personal opinion is that you shouldn't get a visible tattoo - medicine is (on the whole) a rather conservative profession.
think i’ve seen something about strict guidelines on no visible tattoos while working for the NHS
If you think I'm wrong, link please. (and even if you did find some kind of source, I assure you that 'on the ground' loads of nurses and HCAs have them).
