My facility has policy that says that you can not have visible tat's, but fact of the matter is on my LFA I have a skull with a joker's hatand on my RFA is a heart with three claws in it, also a funky tribal spiral that I drew,andan acorn with oak leaves. Last but not least I have a cross on my right thumb.
As for piercing my tongue is done twice with 12 G, and my right ear is done twice with 4 G.
I have a shaved clean head and about a four inch goat-t that is trimed neat or braided.
Most of my pears and pt. are taken back at first glance, but I have been at this facility for six months and the everyone now can see that the outward look is not the mater at hand the care that you provide is what you will be considered for and the majority of folk can see the facts clearly.
I give quality care and that is the bottom line.
Live it do not fear it.
Do not be a good Nurse! BE A GREAT NURSE !!!!!!!
