Despite studies showing tattoos and piercings can affect patient trust levels, an Ontario arbitrator says hospital staff shouldn’t have to hide their body art.

    Those that sport tattoos are pardon the pun, effectively wearing their poor judgement on their sleeves.

    In spite of what the tattoo artist may say about longevity of the inks they use and that they have used sterile products, the fact remains, those who acquire tattoos risk contracting disease during application and will have incredibly ugly green scars in their elder years.

    It's like smoking - who does not know it will shorten your life? Both indicators of poor judgement.

    In any publicly funded service situation, such as a hospital, I reserve the right to refuse care from someone who judgement or personality is impaired.

    If you were dying and the only doctor that was able to attend to your medical care happened to have a full sleeve of tattoos. What would you do? Refuse care and die? What if that doctor happened to have the same number of diplomas, publications, years of research, patients they've saved, as the number of tattoos they had?? What if they had more? You'd still refuse care?
    Some tattoos have meaning and are comparable to a beautiful ring or necklace you may wear proudly. Your ignorance is the reason the world is the way it is.
