Sarah Gray | World’s Most Tattooed Doctor

31 Years old Sarah Gray is a doctor and future orthopedic surgeon graduated from the University of Adelaine, in Australia, and considered one of the women who practices medicine with more tattoos on her body. It has become popular all over the world not only because of the amount of drawings it has on its skin, but also because it has broken some damages of society. And, while fulfilling his dream of being a doctor, he shows society that having tattoos does not change people's potential and professionalism at all.

Sarah, medical intern who is training to be an Orthopaedic surgeon has opened up about her two loves — body art and medicine — and how the two, which don’t traditionally go hand-in-hand, are smashing stereotypes within the medical profession.

“I find it’s a good talking point, especially a lot of the younger generation of patients that we see. I guess it's a bit of a barrier breakdown between what it is traditionally thought a doctor would look like,” she told Sunrise.

Sarah had her first tattoo at age 16 and now owns a tattoo parlour with her husband Matt, a full-time tattoo artist called The Grim Raptor.

Thanks to her artistic body, Sarah has more positive experiences than negative ones to tell. But even so, he has had to face one or another awkward situation. An example of this is an event that took place in an Australian restaurant, where both she and her husband had to leave after being asked to leave the place. This is further proof that there are still taboos against appearances other than the standards set by society.

But not everything is black. Thanks to her great talent, Sarah managed to open her own artistic studio , where she tattooed other people. He also won the  Miss Ink Australia contest in 2017, and, of course, he has received the unconditional support of all the people he lives with on a daily basis.

As Sarah said:

“If you want something and work hard, you can get it. The more people help to eliminate the limits of stereotypes, the more will be the possibilities of changing the way people think in the future ”. 

And he is very right: to change the position of others you have to continue contributing, working and demonstrating that the different is not bad. h/
