    I have a lot of self respect, what does that have to do with the fact that I have chosen to do something with my body that you have not? Cutious am I, what did you do?Well, if that is your reasoning and logic, there is no sense in trying to change it. I just find it to be strange and mindless..So many youngsters doing the same thing, no one thinking for themselves.. It's not a mark of horrible morals or anything else that would indicate that I think less of myself as a human being. Odd how you choose to view them.

    What about those people who jump in the sack with every Tom, Dick and Harry. How about their self respect? By now, you know what I think about this, so what do you think?? No way to tell that of course.Simply ask more, a assume less. Unless you hold the belief that people with tattoos are promiscuous, in which case you'd be sadly mistaken. Good Lord... I never said anything like that, I am simply saying that human disfigurement looks like hell, plus it must hurt, yet you talk about self-respect....

    If I have misread or did not understand what you were saying above, please forgive me. Sometimes things are lost in text, but if I'm reading your post correctly, I can't hardly believe anyone would hold these beliefs.
    In this world, there are all kinds, as you age this will be discovered.

    If they aren't bound by social norms, then they should have no problem being ostracized, marginalized and stigmatized by society.

    Typically, they don't.
    They're part of a counterculture, and that's the only "society" they care about.

    The company I work for recently interviewed a guy for a decent paying salaried position. This guy was highly qualified and very intelligent. At least my boss who conducted the interview thought so. He recommended him for the position. Well they called him in for a second interview by two of the engineers in charge of our department. They where also impressed by his credentials except for one huge problem. The huge holes in his ears, his ear lobes were sagging and he had holes in his face from multiple piercings. He did not get the job. Not because they didn't like his earholes but because it was against company policy. They could not hire him and my boss knew it when he recommended him. He wanted them to see that we were missing out on an excellent opportunity in hopes that it would be a catalyst for changing company policy.

    I was always told as a kid to "use my head for something besides a hatrack".... I just assumed a coatrack was included in this advice.

    Re: What do you think when you see a guy with 1 inch holes in each ear?

    In an increasing numbers of industries- and not just service industries- moderate body modification is well tolerated.

    I think some of you guys who responded with variations on "he must be unemployed" must live in some pretty sheltered places. I know lots of people with all kinds of tattoos and piercings and crap and while many of them do work in kitchens almost as many are employed in professional settings.

    There's lots of very talented people who work at non-profit organizations and small creativity oriented businesses (graphic design firms, video editing studios, etc.) that could probably make more money at more mainstream businesses but choose not too so that they can pursue a lifestyle more comfortable to them.

    The joke is on big stiff corporations because their smaller competitors are getting just as good (and sometimes better) work out of people for less money, and all they have to do is tolerate some nose rings.

    My roommate manages multiple restaurants and makes 60k a year and has so many tattoos that she's been on the cover of tattoo magazines. Sometimes I think in big cities it's almost a disadvantage to not have lots of mods.

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    What do you think when you see someone so attired. How does someone like that expect to advance their career? I speculated that perhaps he is a tatoo artist?
    All I heard was "those rascally whipper-snappers!"

    A whipper snapper would more likely be an arrogant, energetic, and cocky guy with a college degree that he thinks entitles him to an $80,000 a year job, right out of college.

    No, this young fellow looked like an unemployed loser with low aspirations, other than getting high, getting tatted, and getting laid.
