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 :D

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.

They would care much more your scores and CV than your tattoes, especially if you can cover them and they would never you have them at all.

shouldn`t be an issue now a days. Even less if they can be covered. Have seen plenty of residents with tatts and they have never had any problems

Well, it doesn't really matter. Older people still tend to look a bit different at people with tattoos. I have noticed it myself because I have two, pretty visible, but younger generation or educated people are more interested in what can you do rather than your tattoos.

Most people don't care if you have a tattoo. It only gives people a reason to judge you but this can be ignored altogether. Most hospitals have a policy that the tattoos should not be visible. It is advisable to get attires that cover the tattoos.
