Sure, I would get one.  I don't care if it is noticed by other people or employers.

I have seen several articles on this subject and yes I would have one.. but others might wonder if an employer would notice etc.. ie too much info.

This sounds like something out of a Star Trek episode. The rapid innovation in biotechnology science is promising.

They don’t use tattoo ink instead they use a special biosensing ink that changes color due to the fluid in your tissues. This is a great article.

From what I've just seen, this isn't a tiny, unobtrusive Medical Tattoo, that would always be covered with clothing. I'd like to know what kind of "chemicals" they use in the tatto, and what side effects they might have!

 

I already have a tattoo/implant marking spots where the my breast cancer showed up, and then to align the machine when I got radiation treatment.

 

I'd skip any other medical markings & invasive treatments, if at all possible.
