Regrets: That it's not bigger.
Funniest/Strangest Comment(s): At a classy Vegas restaurant, one of five douchebags at another table stops me on my way to the women's restroom and asks, "Uh, uh, uh, uh-uh...is that a 'tribal'?," pointing at my left hip. As I begin to explain the piece, I'm interrupted by the
gaggle of manly-giggling douches behind him: "Yeah, nevermind...uh, what're you doing tonight?" I left the restaurant with the same group of folks I came in with -- and slightly less hope in humanity.
On having tattoos and working at a hostpital: I realize the social stigma that comes with visible tattoos, especially when you work with/for/as hospital administration. But there's really no dress code to prevent us from exposing our "selves" to patients. I've seen nurses with great "sleeves" taking awesome care of patients! One of our managers has a great neck piece, too, that peeks out of his collared shirt. I work with lots of great people who have visible and not-visible ink. ...When I see someone's tattoos I can't help but admire a lot of them and I love to hear the stories behind them.
