writting tattoo

- No es falta de imaginación, es el exceso de ella.  Tengo mil cuentos de árboles y hombres en la punta de la lengua, en la punta de los dedos; tampoco es falta de tiempo, al contrario.

-¿Entonces por qué esa hoja sigue en blanco?

-Porque el inicio siempre es complicado. ¿Recuerdas estar en el útero de tu madre?  ¿recuerdas todo el dolor que te provocó nacer? ¿tus primeros traumas? ¿la forma en que te inculcaron el desprecio o el amor?

-No

-¿Lo entiendes? Nosotros somos un libro lleno de recuerdos; en él hay cientos de docenas de historias, cantos y poemas pero nuestra primer hoja está en blanco ¡en blanco como esta!

No sabes cuan difícil es marcar la vida de un ser imaginario; darle forma a su desesperación y su angustia. No solo se trata de darle ojos, piernas, dotarlo de voz, arroparlo y arrojarlo al mundo, no.  Estoy obligada a quebrarlo como nos han quebrado a todos, de otra forma nadie sentirá empatía por el.

Debo romper su espíritu antes de verlo nacer, de lo contrario no pertenecerá a este mundo.

I'm a pre med student, and I have visible tattoos (writs down) and I was wondering if that will effect admissions to Med school, residency, and future work as a physician.

This question comes up a lot.

I generally recommend that people keep them covered for interviews and clinical activities, just because you don’t know what your interviewers’ or your patients’ preferences and sensitivities would be. But tattoos really shouldn’t affect anything. I know LOTS of docs, nurses, pharmacists, and other hospital staff with plenty of tattoos (even full sleeves). Our hospital requires employees to keep them covered at work, but they don’t mind you having them, and it doesn’t affect employment.

I work with one male physician who has pierced ears and pierced nipples that are generally pretty visible under his ratty Affliction t-shirts. On weekends he walks the halls with ripped jeans, boots, and a leather jacket, and patients who don’t know him assume he’s a visitor, but he’s an excellent physician, so no one says anything about his wardrobe choices. Ultimately, what matters is whether you’re good at your job or not. Ok, but maybe don’t go this far.

Hey! Could you recommend USUK fanfiction in which America discovers England's tattoos or vice versa? Just fics about tattoos in general would be lovely, actually.

Oooh, this is a really interesting ask! Let’s set some mood music first (it’s a USUK AMV to “Tattoo”). And another one with the same song.

England has a Tattoo

America has a Tattoo

Other Body Markings

Bonus: Arthur’s tattoo, a short UKUS, NSFW comic.
