If you have visible tattoos and gauged ears, do not apply where I am in control.

Teenageers and early 20 somethings, it is time to grow up. It is going to cost you getting decent jobs if you do these immature acts to your body.

i have piercings and gauged ears. there is nothing wrong with it. it doesn't affect the way people works. it shouldn't matter. like the old saying goes looks can be deceiving. you never know the people you are turning away for jobs just by the way they look might be a asset to your company and you will never know because you don't give them a chance. its very sad how people are so narrow minded still. years ago it was all about if you was black or a woman now if you have tattoos or piercings or gauges.sounds to me like your the one who needs to grow up!

LOL. I actually count 7 "fails" in there, along with another 3 that aren't technically failures, but could have been written better. My middle school English teachers would have failed me for writing in such a poor fashion. Stupid opinions are bad enough, but when they're stated poorly, they become much worse.

Grosses me out. It's a wise business decision because I won't shop or eat where people like that work. I have left restaurants before because I lose my appetite.

Tattoos and certain piercings don't bother me. I'm in my mid-20s and my husband is in his early 30s and we both have tattoos (I have 2 and he has 4, but none of ours are huge). Plus, I have both ears pierced several times, my belly button (I have a very nice stomach & work out often, not quite a very defined 6-pack after my son but getting back there but even when I had a 6-pack or if I ever do again I never have and never will run around in belly shirts but I do show it when in my bikini.) and used to have a nose piercing but decided to take it out and it grew over much faster than I expected and haven't decided to have it re-pierced yet. My husband has both ears pierced (one has 2 piercings) and used to have his tongue pierced but let that one grew over- Miss that one! LOL ;)) Plus, even now I want the reverse eyebrow piercings (the ones under the outside edge of the eyes- I want 2-3 on each side. Kinda like sparkly eye-liner on the bottom, I guess.) and the Marilyn Monroe piercing (piercing where M.M.'s beauty mark was and also sometimes called a beauty mark piercing) and my husband I both have talked about and want to get a couple of our tattoos changed a bit and re-brightened. We'd also like to get some type of matching tattoo that incorporates our love and commitment to each other along with something in it that symbolizes our son and can be added to or .amended later to add something for future children. We've also talked about getting wedding band tattoos. All that said, we are both very hard workers with degrees and good jobs and were also good parents. So certain piercings and tattoos, IMO, can be beautiful, tasteful, and in no way mean we aren't "grown up", irresponsible, poor employees, on drugs, or have any other negative attributes. But, while I am sure there are plenty of people out there that enjoy, like, and appreciate beauty in tattoos and piercings I do have to admit that even we have discussed these people that have more tattoos that bare skin, so many piercings (in a lot of very strange places sometimes) that they look like they got hit by shrapnel, and gauged ears big enough to drive an 18-wheeler through them and neither of us like it, want it, or even understand a lot of it. Things like "sleeves" (tattoos that cover your arm(s) entirely), full body tattoos or tattoos on your face, and certainly extremely large gauges in someone's ears look awful to me. And, it may sound sexist but it's how I feel- women should only have tattoos in certain places. Areas like biceps, the back of the calf muscles, & forearm just don't look good to me. And the gauged ears...why would anyone do that really at all but especially to the point that you could put a basket ball through it and if you take the gauge out the ear sags low enough to lay on the person's shoulder? Plus, I've been around several people that had largely gauged ears (both when they had the gauges in and when they were out) and it seems to me like no matter what they all have a horrid odor. Why is that because I know at least a couple of them take the gauges out minimum once daily and thoroughly clean them? What I've spent a lot of time saying but in short, I don't mind and even like tattoos and all kinds of piercings when they are done within reason and are not taken overboard but I agree that people can definitely go overboard with both and it completely takes any beauty out of it. Sorry for such a long post!

To make shorter & easier to read/respond to posts I cut out a smaller part to post alone....My husband & I would also like to get some type of matching tattoo that incorporates our love and commitment to each other along with something in it that symbolizes our son and can be added to or .amended later to add something for future children. We've also talked about getting wedding band tattoos. Any ideas for a good matching tattoo like that and if we got wedding band tattoos, do you think initial tats or actual ring like tattoos would be better? Plus, we both got all previous tattoos nowhere near this area so who are the best tat artists and have the best/longest lasting ink?

Again, tried to just put small section to make it easier...While some tats and piercings can be tasteful, beautiful, and pretty to have, so people do take it overboard. Things like "sleeves" (tattoos that cover your arm(s) entirely), full body tattoos or tattoos on your face, and certainly extremely large gauges in someone's ears look awful to me. And, it may sound sexist but it's how I feel- women should only have tattoos in certain places. Areas like biceps, the back of the calf muscles, & forearm just don't look good to me.

Why is that because I know at least a couple of them take the gauges out minimum once daily and thoroughly clean them and their ears? I agree that people can definitely go overboard with both and it completely takes any beauty out of it.

Paragraphs are easier on readers eyes and you sure talk about yourself a lot. No offense.

Please do tell your business so none of us waste our time at your establishment. Hell I don't even have piercings or a tattoo, but I could never lower myself to work for someone who puts more emphasis on appearance than the skills someone can bring to the table.

It shouldn't matter as long as they do their job! I have tattoos, pierced tongue and nose. Plus jet black hair and bright red bangs. I work in a Christian based psychologist office, I always get complements on my tats and hair.

I spoke of myself a lot because I was trying to illustrate that I like and h&#269;ek piercings and tattoos and so does my husband but that doesn't mean we are bad employees and meant for that to be an example that not everyone with tats and piercings are weird, lazy, drug addicts, or any less capable of doing their job because of it. I didn't talk about myself to brag or in a conceded way but in an informative way.

Just started typing and wasn't thinking about dividing it into paragraphs but I realized what I did after posting and that is why I followed it with smaller paragraphs that highlighted my main points for those who had trouble reading the long post or didn't have the time. On the other hand, I hate when people say things like "paragraphs" are easier to read. I know that and everyone else does, too. However, a lot of people just don't care if they use proper English, punctuation, or the right writing/ paragraph structure. While paragraphs may be easier, anyone that can read above a 4th grade level can still read if if they want and if their reading skills are up to par then not only can they read and understand it but they don't need a ruler to pull down the page to underline each line or their finger to trace where they're reading.

Hope this doesn't offend you.
