Hi Bobbi,

Some companies have an image of what they would like their staff to portray to customers or just in general. But more and more companies are now lax in both of these. You can always see the policies of each company before you apply or after, always feel free to ask the question. You would absolutely find a place that are ok with both.

Tattoos, and pericing was started as a tribal and spiral thing. Since then it became a rebel thing and bikers and gangs along with jail inmates took it over. Now a days we look at as art and away to express our selves but the job industry do not want us to express ourselves there. So this is why.

I think it depends on the company. Most places understand and accepts the your uniqueness. My site manager has piercings and tattoos from head to toe. It does not take away from what he knows and how well he does his job. You can go into an interview and feel a vibe if you know if this place will be a good fit for you or not.

Hannah’s Answer

It's an antiquated ideal and most companies in the US no longer have issues with this, but still ask you to cover them up/remove piercings. I think it's inaccurately viewed as something that is immature or dangerous. It's also a tactic to weed out "unwanted applicants" which has roots in ageism, racially charged views, and old fashioned values.
