Would a tongue or nose ring hurt me getting a job ?
if I were to get one? That is any kind of job, as in retail, child care, receptionist or anything like that. OR what about a tattoo? Well thing is I am 35 and never had any of these and just would like to get one of them before I die. Just a thing with me. Been thinking about it for a while.

By law you can not be discriminated against but you will be. In my experience employees who had facial piercings were asked to remove it during their shift. Hair color had to be natural and tattoos preferably covered by clothing (no neck, face tatts). Here's a suggestion, why not get a fake tattoo or piercing and see... More
