A German article discussing the so-called professional appearance and tattoos at work suddenly became more relevant as maybe I’m about to lose a very interesting job opportunity due to my aesthetic choices (“one piercing per ear” for female employees vs. my two stretched piercings per ear). Painful? Sure enough! Better to say now that later? Definitely as I remain an honest and professional potential employee regardless of my looks and choices!
On the side note, do tattoos influence how we think? No! Do our mods make us less intelligent? No! Does the number and size of our piercings make us less honest, reliable and professional? Definitely no!
Personally I love the way my ears look, especially when I’m wearing clear eyelets and my ears look clean and natural! I love the combo of tattoo sleeves, white shirts and ties! I love being surprised by ppl of various age, background and looks proving that intelligence and goodness know no boundaries!
