    I do wonder how they eek by a living. I certainly would never hire anyone who could not cover their body art in a professional setting.
    Doesn't it depend on the job? Not great for customer service certainly, but why wouldn't you hire them as a programmer/artist/webmaster/etc...?

    The assistant mgr/cashier/host at a Mexican restaurant I frequent has big gauges in his earlobes...probably about 1". Lots of tatts too.

    First time I ever saw him I thought "WTF?" First guy I ever seen with the ear-holes who wasn't on National Geographic. He isn't exactly friendly either. Comes across as having a big attitude that he keeps contained during working hours (with difficulty).

    Never seen him smile. At anyone.

    Frankly if the food wasn't so good I'd be tempted to go somewhere else; somewhere the ass't-mgr didn't act like it was just as important to walk around like a big flashing neon sign saying "I AM A NONCONFORMIST BADASS AND IF I WASNT WORKING I'D BE ALL UP IN YOUR FACE" as it was to see to it that customers enjoyed their dining experience.

    Yeah, he comes across that way.

    He seems to find something annoying about me. I think it is because he knows I don't find him intimidating, just guilty of overly blatant advertising.

    I worked with a guy in PHNSY that had this. He was a really nice Hawaiian guy. Personally, I think it looks kinda stupid, but to each their own. If I didn't know the guy, I'd probably think that he worked in some artistic/tattooing profession or in a not very high profile job.

    You can hang your coat hook in their ears.

    Ive never met someone like that who actually has the personality to match the look.Not that they have been bad people just not outgoing and crazy like their appearence would suggest.

    Sounds like a great answer when they ask what unique skills you have during the interview

    It's interesting to see how many people view this kind of stuff negatively.

    I'm not surprised at all. I think people who do anything like this to their body are up for public scrutiny whether they wanted it or not.

    Personally, I could give a rats ass if a person wants to stretch their lobes past the point of recognition - they aren't my ears. As far as employment goes, it's human nature to pass judgement or assume (most times WRONGLY) that someone is "stupid" or a "drug addict" because of their appearance - but people do it. Body mods is no indication of a persons ability or inability to do a job. Unfortunately, they most times will not even be given the chance. That is a consequence people know about when they choose to do something like that.

    Much like when someone sees an obese person. Have people describe them and the first thing most people say is "lazy". It's a judgement and people make them all the time.

    I would never do body mods like the ear thing.. but I do have a few tattoos. Mine are not on my face or somewhere that is "out in someone's face" yet people will assume I'm some scourge, dumbass or trashy slut solely based on the fact that I have them and MOST times, they have no idea where they are because by all account and dressed in my office attire, nobody knows. /shrug

    If they are that narrow minded, then I don't want them to get to know me to begin with. Not my loss.
