I want to get a simple cursive text tattoo on my inner wrist, and wanted to know if this would be an impediment to a successful medical career. Do people trust doctors with tattoos? Would this keep me from a job, or even a position in medical school?
I want to become a researcher and surgeon (hopefully MD/PhD), my undergraduate work is in mathematical neuroscience and engineering
The tattoo would be the first line of one of my favorite poems, Desiderata, and would read
" Go placidly amid
the noise and haste,
and remember what
peace there may be
in silence. "
The quote is personally meaningful, not violent or controversial in any way. It's taken from a poem which talks about attaining happiness and I wanted it in a place where I could read it when/if I get stressed or lose sight of what's really important, etc. As of now I have no tattoos, and am not a biker/hipster/emo type (no problem with those, just not me). I understand that tattoos are best kept hidden in a professional environment, but given the nature of this, could it be a problem?
