Not sure if this is a daft question but I’m wanting to get a small tattoo in memory of my dad preferably on my wrist, I’ve applied for child nursing and I’m not sure if it’s accepted for nurses to have tattoos or not especially if it’s a visible one.

Nurses seem to do it. I think they look cheap and nasty but that is just my opinion

Yes, my friend is a qualified nurse and she's covered in tattoos. Full sleeve and everything. She's been judged for it in previous jobs, but apparently had no issues with it working for the NHS.

That in my opinion is a lovely thing to do, having a tattoo in memory of your dad.
However I cant help but think it would be better to have it in a position where it can be covered if necessary. Just my view.

Do it on places that they can’t see. I’m gonna have tattoos all over my chest and neck. They can’t see that

As long as it’s not offensive in any way it’s fine and allowed

Go for it!Working for the NHS requires a non-judgemental attitude. I expect this value goes both ways - for staff and service users.

Normally if you say something and unless you put something in quotation marks, then it's your opinion and you don't need to say 'that's just my opinion'.
