    Goodness no. As long as someone is clean and neat, I wouldn't care if they had a banana growing out the front of their head.

    Nah I don't care. But why not wait until you have had the grad program interviews if you're worried your tat will be an issue with the interviews?
    Or even wait until you are settled in a good job?

    I am a (student) Nurse and I have a tattoo on my wrist which is quite visible. It hasn't been brought up yet, It's not massive and when people do notice it they think i've just written something on my wrist. When I go for interviews etc I wear a watch which covers it.

    Not at all, even if you had both sleeves and some piercings thrown in for good measure.

    Aww love that tattoo.
    I have no problems, but both myself and DF have tattoos (he's almost covered) so maybe a little biased.
    I personally wouldn't get any that are big/visible on my arms as it COULD slightly hurt employment.. But a small wrist one would look tasteful and not overly noticeable. I want a tiny wristy for bub, but apart from that all of my tattoos are on my back and covered.
    You may have problems with employers/managers that are against tattoos... For instance I know my parents wouldn't employ someone with visible tattoos for front of house (even though their daughter and nephews all have tats) but really a tiny one you can probably hide with a watch or something if it's a big deal.

    I would wait until you are settled into employment before getting any tattoos that would be visible in a job interview.

    While it shouldn't affect your employment chances, there are some employers who may consciously or subsconsciously discriminate against you for how you look. It's awful, but how it is.

    However, i don't think patients probably care one way or the other.

    Nope.

    The nurse who helped with DD had her hands done, from fingers to wrist, in beautiful classical roses. It made me feel more at ease because I'm very heavily inked, and I felt like we had more in common, so I relaxed a lot more with her than with the other nurse.

    When they put the iv in she held my hand {I have a phobia of needles...yes, really} and concentrating on the minute detail totally distracted me.
    I remember she had this tiny, no bigger than half a matchstick, caterpillar hiding behind one of the roses. It was lovely.

    Turns out we had the same artist

    Cute choice of tatt and I don't think even older people would be concerned about that one. Yes if you are concerned about job interviews, as a pp suggested, you could always wear a watch.

    Nope, but you will always get someone who feels to need to look down on you for it. There is a segment on Sunday on 7 tonight about tattoos in society.

    I work in child care and will soon be getting visible tatts, some inappropriate for child care but wont be fully visible in uniform.
