Though the rise in popularity of tattoos has been exponential, the fact is, they still get a bad rap. Plenty of businesses don't want them even slightly visible on their employees because of their "unconventional" nature -- but one son, whose mother has two sleeves of tattoos, just cannot understand the bias. And after you hear his reasons why, you'll likely feel the same way. 

  • Jordan Miller of Carrollton, Ohio, shared this photo of his mother Misti Johnson along with a thoughtful caption.

    "Talking to my mom tonight (who is a registered nurse) and she was telling me about how strict some hospitals are when it comes to employees having tattoos. I must say I am kind of confused. 

    "I've seen my mom pull a lady out of a car before it fills with smoke and she suffocates. I've seen her do stitches on an injured person on the side of the road following a car accident. I've seen her come home after a 12-hour shift, dead tired after dealing with an abusive patient all day, and get back up and do it again the next day. She's come home after holding a baby in her hands and watching it take their last breath. She's saved a drug addict's life after overdosing in the hospital bed."

  • "Tattoos don't define the person," he continued.

    "My mom has more tattoos than I can count and it has never, ever affected her work ethic. She will wake up at the same time every day and save a life."


  • The post garnered a ton of support, with many fellow nurses sharing their thoughts.

  • While others just couldn't agree more.

  • And even a few former patients chimed in to extol the virtues of this tatted nurse.

  • Johnson was utterly blown away by all of the support she received.

    But seriously -- who WOULDN'T want a badass nurse getting them back on their feet? Hopefully hospitals and other service industries will get with the times soon.
