Show Teeth Tattoo and residency

I have a few tats from military. They are easily covered even with short sleeve shirt.

I wonder if it matters in residency if a person has ink

Quoting answer from the other forum:
Ideally it shouldn't, realistically it does matter (medicine is full of of conservative folks even these days). However, as long as it's not visible you are good

As long as it is not very visible (AKA not an entire limb), i don't think it matters. I know a lot of residents/nurses with tattoos.

No, no one ever said anything negative to me about my ink in residency.
Nurses have to cover theirs with sleeves or some other stuff, but doctors dont.
