I would say neither.... go for something a bit more original. But then again it's your body....

The following are the primary complications that can result from tattooing:

Infection: Unsterile tattooing equipment and needles can transmit infectious diseases, such as hepatitis and skin infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus ("staph") bacteria*. Tattoos received at facilities not regulated by your state or at facilities that use unsterile equipment (or re-use ink) may prevent you from being accepted as a blood or plasma donor for twelve months.

Removal problems: Despite advances in laser technology, removing a tattoo is a painstaking process, usually involving several treatments and considerable expense. Complete removal without scarring may be impossible.

Allergic reactions: Although FDA has received reports of numerous adverse ractions associated with certain shades of ink in permanent makeup, marketed by a particular manufacturer, reports of allergic reactions to tattoo pigments have been rare. However, when they happen they may be particularly troublesome because the pigments can be hard to remove. Occasionally, people may develop an allergic reaction to tattoos they have had for years.

Keloid formation: If you are prone to developing keloids -- scars that grow beyond normal boundaries -- you are at risk of keloid formation from a tattoo. Keloids may form any time you injure or traumatize your skin.

Even with the established popularity of body art, there are still areas in society - the professional world in particular - that do not view body art as an expressive trend but more as an indicator of one's lack of professional creditability and a marker for rebellion.

People are judged by their appearance, regardless of whether they have tattoos and piercings

The Army has revised its policy on tattoos in an effort to bolster recruitment of highly-qualified individuals who might otherwise have been excluded from joining. Tattoos are now permitted on the hands and back of the neck if they are not “extremist, indecent, sexist or racist.

As for a doctors, well that depends on what field. Which would be. . .

I used to be a tattoo artist and I have to agree with much of what has been said by Vcoolspice.

Considering your future career choices, I wouldn't get a tattoo on my hands.

Why do you want it? Are you trying to be the first to break a social barrier?

You have to ask yourself seriously why you want a tattoo and what does it mean to have it?


then do nothing about it for at least year. (this thing is going to be on you for the rest of your life.. one more year won't matter.)

Traditionally the tattoo is enriched in culture, status and meaning. I believe modern tattoos shouldn't be much different, even if the motive has changed.


 FTR I wouldn't tattoo names of husbands, wives, lovers, or cartoon pictures. 



but in the end it's your body.

Why not?
and why not cartoon pictures?

Also, in your time as a tattoo artist, how rare was a 'incident' medical wise?

Husbands, Wives and Lovers can change... tattoos are there forever.

Cartoons are, for the majority of people, a fad.. quite often they are the work of mates on a bucks night.

There's always going to be some cases of infection... but it's usually from improper post tattoo care than for cross contamination. Other than the odd person coming back with a complaint for that, I was unaware of any major medical issues in the studio I worked at.
The most complaints we got were from people who thought getting tweety bird on their left shoulder was a good idea.
