How would I hide a wrist tattoo for nursing clinicals?

I should start nursing clinicals in the fall if this coronavirus stuff blows over by then, but my school has a rule that all tattoos must be covered up or concealed. I've thought about makeup but with the amount that you wash your hands, I'm afraid it would just wash off. I have another one on my forearm that I could wear long sleeves under my scrubs to cover, but I'm not sure that would work on the one on my wrist unless I wanted soggy sleeves all day. Any suggestions?


It's closer to my hand than the picture makes it appear.

    That tattoo is so small and unnoticeable that you may be able to just be quiet about it and no one will notice.  If that is a problem, try a nylon wrist support band.  It will be water resistant and just appear to be a support appliance.  Or possible just a small band aid will cover that tattoo.

    Adding my comments, I don't see what effect the tattoo has on what you are doing.  I know you have to comply but having to cover it is a stupid rule.
