A mom is going viral after her son posted this picture of her in her scrubs alongside a sweet caption about her tattoos.
Although tattoos are largely being accepted into the mainstream nowadays, there are still some who have preconceived notions about people with ink, and see tattoos as inappropriate for the workplace. But Jordan Miller, whose mom Misti Johnson is registered nurse, posted this message on Facebook explaining why there is so much more to his mother than what meets the eye.
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 addicts life after overdosing in the hospital bed.
Tattoos don't define the person.
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 everyday and save a life.
