Do you have a tattoo/piercing?: i have 18 tattoos and 3 piercings

Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it? Heck no! I have a face tattoo, and am a functioning member of society. its artwork, and i am still perfectly able to do my job just as well as everyone else. it doesn't change who a person is. if someone gets a scar, does it make them a different person?

Why do you think people should/should not have them? i think you should have them if you want them because its a way to show who you are, you get what you WANT and it shows everyone a look at your personality.

In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job? no. i have tattoos and piercings and i do my job just fine. been there for 5 years and i am a reliable worker.

Do you have a tattoo/piercing?: I only have my ears pierced.

If not, Are you against them in any way?: I am not. I find tattoos to be a beautiful art form. And I'm a little cliche and want my first one to mean something. After that, I'll probably be a little more lenient on what a "special meaning" defines.

Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it?: Of course not. It doesn't affect how one does a job or lives their life. Having a ton of tattoos does not mean you are mean, a bad person, or a drug dealer as a lot of older people seem to think. It is just a way to express yourself.

Why do you think people should/should not have them?: People should have them if they want them. I'm having an issue with my in-laws. They are very religious and believe a body is a temple and should be treated as such. I use the argument that I want my temple to have art on the walls! Just like many things in life, I think this should be left up to the choice of the person getting the procedure. Want it? Get it. Don't want it? Don't.

In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job?: It should not be the deciding factor. I guess the one exception could be facial tattoos when working with elderly dementia patients because it might scare them. I'm not even allowed to wear a costume for Halloween or do heavy makeup in case it scares them. But other than that, I really don't think it should matter at all.

Do you have a tattoo/piercing?:

Not yet and I peobably wont ever get any piercings. I am still thinking about tattos though providing any allergy tests go well.

If not, Are you against them in any way?

No I am perfectly fine with people having them.

Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it?

No looking down on someone because of them having a piercing or tattoo just doesn't make sense to me.

Why do you think people should/should not have them?

I think if you are planning to take a trip abroad somewhere such as Japan for example then it might be best to double check what their cultural attitudes are to them. Then get them done after the trip so you don't get locked out of certain things. It might also be a good idea to wait until after you move out and able to support yourself if you live in an overly religious or strict household that are against them. But otherwise I think people should be able to have them where ever they want on their bodies.

In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job?

No unless there is some proof that it will cause a safety hazard or harm to other people it should not be a deciding factor.
I wont be on until late on Fridays

Do you have a tattoo/piercing?: No tattoos on me, but i plan on getting at least one because my mother has a tattoo which represented a time in my families life in which we were all happy and content and i think it's really nice that she did that, so in turn i want to get a tattoo of the same thing but change it a bit to my liking. As for piercings ive only got my ears pierced.

If not, Are you against them in any way? Nah not against them, but would be dependant on the individual getting them, are they allergic? then id would advise them not to, but otherwise not against them.

Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it? No. People shouldn't be looked down on because of a tattoo or piercing! Maybe if you over-do it with piercings and tattoos it can appear as intimidating to others at first but, we should all know by now that we cant make a proper judgement on a person solely by appearance alone.

Why do you think people should/should not have them? A reason they shouldnt would be that if the person is too immature and goes overboard with the piercings and tattoos and regrets it later. I think they gotta know what they want and understand the consequences. Another reason might be face tattoos, cause it can potentially cover up facial recognition on technology. And i agree with the above, in case of certain cultures they may see it as a negative thing and lock you out of certain activities or places.

In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job? Should not be the "deciding factor", if other factors come into play such as strength or intelligence then i think it should be overlooked. Again though with the facial recognition tech, might become bothersome. Agreed with above again, unless there is a hazard or will harm other in any way should not be the decision maker.

Do you have a tattoo/piercing?: I only have my ears pierced, but I plan on getting a tattoo as soon as I can find a reputable tattoo parlor near-ish to where I live. I live in the middle of nowhere so it's kind of a long drive to get to anything.
If not, Are you against them in any way? No absolutely not! I do have a lot of friends and family who are though. Bible belt territory, so they look down on/hate people who have any kind of body modifications.
Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it? No! We shouldn't judge people by the color of their skin, so why should we judge them for what they put on (or technically in) their skin?
Why do you think people should/should not have them? They're cool! If you want one, get one! If you don't, don't! It's your body, so it's your choice.
In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job? Tattoos, no. Piercings, kind of. Let me explain. No one has ever been hindered in their job performance by having a tattoo. Only other people's perceptions have been affected (judgmental people) by someone's tattoo, ant THAT might affect their ability to get or perform a job. Now, a piercing is a little different. While I still think no one should be judged by their piercings, there are certain jobs that would be dangerous for someone who has a piercing in an "odd" place. MRI machines and industrial equipment could grab a piercing and rip it out, causing bodily damage. Now, I think that the decision lies on the worker to be smart and either not wear their piercing to work or find a job that doesn't make wearing it dangerous. However, even if they're not smart, the employer should still have a say because, unfortunately, they would still have to pay insurance, workman's comp, and/or paid sick time for an employee who was injured on the job by their piercing. There could (and probably should) be some legal protections put in place so that an employer doesn't get punished for their employees being dumb and putting themselves in danger, so that they don't have to discriminate against people with piercings.

Do you have a tattoo/piercing?: I have my ear lobes pierced and I'm thinking heavily about getting another two piercings on my ears. Nose rings are cute, but I don't think I'd be able to maintain one.
If not, Are you against them in any way? No.
Do you think that people who have them should immediately be looked down upon because of it? No, nobody should be looked down upon for their piercing/tat decisions unless they are attack/rude/explicit tattoos that are out in the open.
Why do you think people should/should not have them?
In the work force, should a tattoo or a piercing be the deciding factor in whether or not they get a job? It really depends on the tattoo, piercings I think are fine so long as they're not all over your body. If the tattoos/tattoo is inappropriate for your field of work, then cover it.
