    @Heart2Soul It's not that a nurse, with her training and scrubs uniform, is supposedly not complete without a tattoo.

    But so many nurses and other health sector workers expect to have inking done that, yes, like you say, it's becoming an (unregretted) norm.

    I don't know if either of your daughters work in the health care sector, but I guess they don't regret theirs at all.

    Hi @Waiting on him . Because it's so thoroughly mainstream now, maybe @VictoryinJesus can rest assured about family who are into ink.

    Saw this quote, FYI:

    source: allnurses dot com

    Since it's so thoroughly mainstream now, no wonder so many Christians want to use faith based tattoos as witness tools.

    Hi @Nancy Well, it seems to be completely mainstream (and no wonder, then, that so many Christians choose to use the medium as a witness tool...)

    It's so thoroughly established, FYI:

    @VictoryinJesus Re. post #43, above, I think you can indeed be assured that it's become so mainstream now.

    @Waiting on him To think that it was once overwhelmingly a man thing to do; now for so many young women as young adults onward it's become a completely mainstream, unregretted and controlled addiction (if this is not tautology...? and maybe addiction is not the best word anyway.)

    Do you think that we'll be seeing more and more women artists excelling at giving ink? and winning more and more competitions?
    (To think that it used to be overwhelmingly a man thing.)

    @Heart2Soul Yes it's becoming a real norm with nurses and health professionals as it's done so confidently now by nurses, right?

    (Whether by young nurses right from the start of their careers, or by older nurses now getting tattooed belatedly; it's becoming the norm; it seems for so many it's now the thing to do.)

    @Helen Oh, well; even if she does, you'll all survive, won't you? :)

    @Heart2Soul PS: I even saw a quote from the mother of a young woman who wanted a career in the health sector, I think, and who advised her daughter to keep her tattoos conservative; and she said that she herself was a recruiting manager in a health facility. And this is the point: the mom herself admits that she herself was just about to get tattooed also... (The underlying point was: health sector professionals need to exercise wisdom in receiving their inkings; but that discreet inkings are seemingly pursued confidently at all levels of the health sector.)

    @Helen: If we maybe figure that these days getting a bit more ink is probably not too different from wanting and getting extra ear piercings, then perhaps it would be sensible not to overreact...? :)

    @soul man So many Christians would at any rate likely conclude that enduring 30-45 minutes of 'Oh! ouch!' at a clean and regularly inspected parlor for a Scripture/faith-based design is a small price to pay for a really effective witnessing tool.
