I am a second-year family medicine resident with a rather large arm-sleeve tattoo. As you can probably deduce by reading the title of this editorial, it will focus on how tattoos in healthcare may be perceived by others. My goal is to illustrate some of my perspectives, opinions, and experiences regarding making my tattoos visible in the clinical setting.
