2008_07_rosetat.jpgA NJ woman is suing her surgeon for putting a temporary rose tattoo, which is described as being on her belly, below her waistline. Her lawyer points out that his client was on her stomach for a herniated disc procedure, so the tattoo must have been placed after the surgery--she discovered it the next day and was very upset by it. The doctor, Steven Kirshner, has apparently left temporary tattoos on patients before to "lift their spirits," but it's unclear where those tattoos were placed. The chairman of U.Penn's Medical School Department of Medical Ethics said, "You cannot do something like this even as a joke."
