I got my tattoo about 3 years ago and haven't even considered the idea of being a nurse at the time so I had no qualms about how this tattoo could affect me in the future.Anyways, my tattoo is of lotus flowers. Nothing that signifies death or anything that could scare a patient. It runs from my top forearm to the top of my hand (left). The tattoo holds a special place in my heart because it signifies overcoming depression that I was suffering from when I got myself inked.I don't know how strict the hospitals are here in Ontario or Canada with regards to having visible tattoos. I've read that they may ask you to cover it up, which is fine by me, but won't wearing long sleeves or putting a concealer be an issue in terms of cleanliness? Also, since I have a tattoo, employers may think I'm a liability and will be more comfortable hiring someone else with the same amount of education or experience who DOESN'T have a tattoo. Is there any chance for me in making it?
