A medical professional who works as an intern at a hospital in Adelaide is breaking all stereotypes by covering herself into tattoos.
Dr. Sarah Gray wants to become an orthopedic surgeon and she has been addicted to tattoos since the age of 16.
The 31-year-old former Miss Inked Australia winner thinks that having tattoos don’t affect a person’s ability to do any job.
Speaking to the Australian news show, Sunrise, she said: “I find it’s a good talking point, especially a lot of the younger generation of patients that we see, I guess its a bit of a barrier break-down between what it is traditionally thought a doctor would look like.”
“If you’re confident and competent at your job it shouldn’t really matter what you look like.”
“I’m just trying to advocate for being your own person and still being able to work in the medical profession.”
“I don’t have anything offensive on me anywhere, I think everything is done really well, and I think there’s a real difference between getting a tattoo that’s of poor quality and getting a tattoo if you’re an art collector like myself.”
Sarah has a huge Instagram following but everyone is not happy with her appearance and last year she spoke to Daily Mail Australia about the discrimination she has faced so far.
“Having colorful skin in no way affects your skill level and with all the anti-discrimination laws now it wouldn’t be appropriate to compartmentalize or treat me differently based on my appearance.
“I’ve worked really hard to develop good professional relationships as I’m fairly memorable, so I’ve made sure I’m memorable for the right reasons through hard work, determination and an always positive attitude.
“For those that don’t like tattoos, that’s entirely their prerogative, I just urge them to at least consider the artistic skill that goes into creating body art.”
