    I don't have any tatoos. I don't mind seeing them on other people though...some of them are pretty, some interesting...some funny. I think I am not getting one just because I would probably get bored of it after a while...also thinking that if I put some weight on (maybe getting pregnant one day hehe) then it would look distorted... I don't really mind the idea of being 80 and having these tatoos ...who cares then, you've been popular and hip while it mattered, right? But yea, as I said, I would get bored of it after a while so then what's the point. I can just look at pretty pictures or other people's tatoos...probably not going to have one any time soon.

    I have a horse on my hip that only my hubby sees, and - guess what - a fleur-de-lis on my ankle! It is covered by scrubs, and I always wear knee hi socks so it won't show if I cross my legs. I will probably end up with more, it is true that they are addictive, but out of respect for the varying tastes of my patients I will make sure none are visible when in uniform!

    I have two tattoo's neither can be seen when wearing scrubs. I have no problem with tattoo's when done in moderation.

    i unfortunately don't have any tattoos yet. But i'm just trying to decide on the exact design i want. I do however have my ears pierced 13 times (7 in my left, and 6 in my right) As well as my nose. All of which i wear at work, and i've never had a patient say anything bad about my piercings, they actually work quite well as conversation starters

    I have a small one of a heart and a daisy with the stem winding out of the heart. Concealed by a bathing suit.

    I have a heart with my husband's name tattoed on my lower back. It's not quite as pretty as it was when I was younger, and sixty pounds lighter.

    I have an ankle tat of leather twist, beads, feathers and a rose. Plan to finish my back hopefully within the next year but that is taking lots of $ as it's full back muriel with american indian theme. Of course that's easily covered by scrubs.

    In nursing school they said you couldn't have tattoos unless they were covered... I thought It was only for school, but the first thing they stressed in my new job -- no tattoos or piercings (except ears, of course). Although I have no tattoos, there are a number of people I know with tattoos that are more than acceptable. I feel its just another 'make others feel comfortable' rule that is unfair... of course, as a male nurse I get that a lot :P
