Just curious about others' thoughts on tattoos or other modifications in healthcare. I work in long term care, which tends to be more conservative in dress codes. Facial piercing and ear gauges are not permitted, visible tattoos are becoming acceptable as long as they are not offensive. The last facility I worked at had a rule about hair color, and your scrubs had to match. No joke. How restrictive is your work place? And have you ever seen a senior member of administration with any body modifications? I am going for m MSN in administration and I have several large tattoos. (Most covered by pants and a lab coat-one wrist, but I am planning on full sleeves when I have the money).
