    Tink, you are wonderful!

    I have actually wanted a tattoo for years, but have just recently found some art that I truly love. Unless my shoulder skin is going to be in my calves in 40 years, I think I will be okay. :D Not too mention, aging is just a part of life. Things move south and become more wrinkled. Nothing I can do.

    I'm not trying to be either ignorant nor rebellious with regards to the conservativeness of the mental health field, but when I'm on my own time, I do have the right to express myself. I realize that with this field I do take on a certain role, but I feel that I still need to be able to be myself. If that all makes sense.

    It makes total sense. One of my relatives (who has a charge nurse position in a very busy ER) has a lower back fairy (I think, or maybe butterfly, can't remember). It's never seen at work, of course, but with a swim suit, or a short top, you can certainly see it. She is ultra professional, and feels exactly like you. She is who she is, and will express that on her own time. She has her navel pierced too.

    I don't think the mental health field is as conservative as it used to be. Times change and people do as well.

    I also see a lot of people who are working with kids that look more and more like the kids.

    I don't have a tattoo. I always wanted one but then never got one. I kind of like being about the only person my age without one :p It makes me rebellious in a reverse sort of way.

    Much of it Johnie will depend upon where you work (agency and state) and the population you are working for.

    Here in FL, (not MH, but an example) working with the elderly as care givers (in an ALF) will result many times in your being asked to cover your tattoos and remove all but one set of earrings (and those need to be conventially in your ear lobes). Elders perceive tattoos and body piercing as aggressive, and feel threatened. When workers remove them, and cover the tattoos, things move much more smoothly.

    Cohort group effect more than anything else, however ALFs are the homes of the elderly and not the workplace of the caregivers, eh?

    While I admire the artwork of many tatoos, I've never had the desire to have one.

    My first reaction to seeing them is pain. Absurd, but there it is. I didn't even have my ears pierced until I was 40! And I'm sticking with that single hole in each ear!
