a tattoo adorned with beautifully intricate cherry blossoms garnered these words: “looks can be deceiving” on the arm of a young and handsome HIV+ patient we rounded on today. he presented with bullous dermatoses on his well-toned legs, bilaterally. on his other arm read, “absolutely no regrets.” i’m not sure what about his presence left such a strong impresion on me, as we finished rounds through the rest of the ward.
