October Theme Of The Month: Halloween!

Inking And Thinking

| NS, Canada | Family & Kids, Health & Body

(I am a young research nurse in an emergency department. I have a large, brightly-colored sleeve tattoo. A young girl—maybe 18 to 19 years old—is visiting a patient.)

Coworker: “Hey, come in here a minute. These girls really like your tattoo!”

(We go through the standard appreciation and explanation.)

Girl: “My mom always said if I got a tattoo, I would never get a decent job. Now I can tell her she’s wrong!”

Me: “Haha, yeah. I am living proof.”

(The girl smiles from ear to ear.)
