It's choice, however, in a limited job market, location and/or type of tattoos or piercings can make all the difference.I own a nice a restaurant and the amount of applicants I get that look the cover of an old National Geographic magazine is staggering. I used to say "well, its so common, no one will notice" . Wrong. I lose customers when I hire them.

What the youth of today need to realize, is no matter how popular trends become, in the workplace, professionalism is still a highly desirable quality. If you want tatoos AND a good job, then have them done where they can be cocealed without tremendous effort. Same with piercings and especially gauges. I hired a young man who was a good worker. However, he had gauges the size of nickles in his ears. With them in, I received numerous customer complaints on a daily basis. So, I put in a new policy that said gauges had to be removed for work. Mistake. As bad as they look in, the ring of dangling flesh made it worse. I received over a hundred complaints the first day. He was a great worker, but I had no choice but to be honest with him and let him go.

Since then, I have completely went old school on my employees appearance. No gauges and absolutely no facial piercings. Covering them with band aids makes it look like you're covered in sores. No visible tatoos. Guys hair has to be above the collar and my female cooks and waitresses wear hair nets. Favial hair is limited to closely cut mustaches or goatees. None of the mountain man beards that have become so popular...even though I love duck dynasty like everyone else. Instead of complaints, I get hundreds of customer compliments on the professionalism of the staff.

My point is simple. Enjoy your tatoos and such. Just use some common sense as well. What you think is beautiful is still considered "trashy" or "dirty" in the professional world.

And before anyone cries discrimination, its age, sex, race, religion, or disability. Your appearance is 100% at the discretion of your employer...especially in a right to work state like Tennessee.

YES that is what these girls do not understand. They look trashy and disgusting but they think it is beautiful!

What kind of drugs do you have to be on to think a ring through your nose is pretty?(ladies you look like you belong on a farm being milked with those in your face)

The big gauge ear modifications make you look like some reject from a tribal gang that eats people for dinner.

I would not hire any of these people either and I have rejected my share of them when they come around looking for work.

Wow....apparently some can't read. The title to this thread is about TATTOOS. Not body piercings or ear gauging.

Who cares why, they still look trashy.

Do women realize they lose good opportunities to meet quality guys when they have tattoos. I have a good job, money, decent looking and sense of humor. I go through personal ads and then I click when I like a particular lady. Then, I have to go to the next profile , because once I see even one tattoo on a pic, I am gone. Do not like when women low life their bodies and make themselves look masculine. Not into that .

Well said and that is in every state by the way. People adjust to societal norms, not the other way around. The irony is that these tatted folks are so arrogant and cite their individuality, but they can not accept the individuality of business men like us, that have the individual right to make money. These people are a detriment to that.

Haha! I read all three of your post,and you sound like you have a lot going for you. However, being cocky, arrogant, and judgemental are turn-offs for most ladies. Tone it down about 10 notches, and maybe you won't have to look at dating-site online profiles.:/
