    i've got sleeves starting on both arms, large portraits on both legs.... and i'm not about to stop.
    and i won't lie: one (little but convenient) reason why i want to be a nurse is the higher wage i will receive, which will then fund my tattoo obsession. i'm an LPN, in school for my RN. i have been a CNA for 5 years now. i'm fine with wearing long sleeves at work: it's much easier to cover them up than deal with the multitude of different responses you can get from people.

    I have a few tattoos. Let's see... going head to toe. I have a red tribal sun on the back of my neck. On the left of my neck (on the side) I have a few stars, a nautical star, and my zodiac (Gemini). On my left posterior shoulder I have a japenese symbol representing the word Crisis - straight from the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses textbook from nursing shool. On my right wrist I have the dragon Smaug, from The Hobbit. On my left side I have a very large and detailed tattoo which I cannot describe in detail other than it involves the iron eagle and other things. On my anterior left hip I have another japanese symbol ... not sure what it means. I forgot. On my right anterior hip I have a playboy bunny which I got quite a few years ago. And lastly ... I have a very large colourful tattoo dragon on my right buttock. (= Still more to come!
    Oh, I'm 22 years old and an RN.

    Ya'll didn't actually have an option for my situation. I have a tattoo on the inside of my left forearm. It is visible, I only have the one, and I don't regret it. I voted for more than one, but less than 10, because I do plan on getting another tattoo next year.
    My tattoo is done in white ink (and I am white, with very pale skin). Most people don't notice it, or think it is something other than a tattoo. I have been asked if it is a club/bar stamp, if was a tattoo that I had removed, or a scar. It's a simple pattern and about 2"x2". Most days I wear long sleeves so it's no big deal, but sometimes I don't, and I have had managers tell me not to cover it because the bandage is more eyebrow raising than the tattoo itself.

    I'm not a nurse yet, but I have 4 and will continue to get more as time goes on. I keep them all where they can be covered by scrubs. However in the future I am looking forward to maybe having one on my inner forearm or my wrists.

    I have one tattoo at the moment, with plans to get at least one or two more. My tattoo is on my left shoulder blade, its two teddy bears w/ angel wings and halos. It's in memory of my sons...Landon's name is across the top, and Brayden's is below the bears.

    I have a large one on the back of my neck, so every time I put my hair into a ponytail... Thar she is. For that reason alone, I wish I didn't have it.
    I love tattoos. I just would not have too many.
