I really had no idea where to put this post, so I just put it in the kitchen. Feel free to move it.

I was going to get a tattoo of my medical band on my wrist. But my friend has a good point, she said be aware that might impair me at job interviews. And the unemployment rate for epileptic patients I heard is 20-50%. What are your thoughts?

You could cover it up in job interviews...

Will a tattoo have information about medications/doses/allergies? If not, then it might be better to have an actual bracelet, especially since that information can change.

I'm thinking a long sleeve that looks professional, perfect for a job interview, sort of like a dress shirt.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear, I mean a tattoo of the plastic bracelet they put on you when you go to the hospital.

PS: I have dog tags, same concept.

I've thought about it also especially since I can't have an MRI.
I've tried dog tags and bracelets but I can't seem to find ones I'm comfortable with.
