Would you tattoo "RN" on your body?

  1. I saw a reference to this on another thread. I'm just curious as to how common this is.

    I would not have a tattoo - too painful!!! But I sort of think if I had to have one DNR written across my chest.....................

    I am not into tattoos either, but if I were to get one R.N. would not be it.

    Ummm why???????

    IF I were to get a tat, it would not be a "Brand" such as RN. I would feel demeaned by such a thing.

    I am not into tats, anyhow. I find them ugly as people get older. Not into pain, either. That's just me.

    *still shaking head,wondering WHY?

    I have many Tattoos, I'm not an RN so obviously RN wouldn't be one I would get. But I could see where people would do it...be proud to be RN/LPN/BSN whatever you are...you worked hard to call yourself that!

    I wouldn't ever get any tattoos. But if I were, it wouldn't be one of my profession. Just as I wouldn't get lawyer, doctor, teacher, or any other profession or degree I've attained tattooed on me.

    For me, and this may change once I enter the nursing world for good, what I do does not define me. I am more than the sum of my parts....

    Nope, I wouldn't get a tatoo of any sort because I think tatoo art looks tacky.

    Some are very tacky, but mine are really cute! No, I wouldn't do the RN one though!

    Only if it was universally known to mean "Real Naughty".
