There are times when I have to wonder if people really think things through when going through a rebellious stage, or whatever it is that causes them to do crazy things to their body. Between full facial tattoo’s and EXTREME fingernails, I just don’t know how they expect others to interact with them in a public employment setting. When I go to a store or place of business, I want to see who I’m dealing with, not which tattoo I’m dealing with. While I embrace diversity, and while some attitudes about body modifications in the workplace are changing a little, I don’t think extreme modifications will ever truly be accepted in most places of employment. We haven’t evolved that much. Employers are going to notice the following issues when you go for your interview and if you decide to embrace the extreme, you’re going to limit yourself in what you might otherwise achieve in the workforce.
1. Full face tattoo.
While some may think it makes them look better, take my word for it, it does not. I don’t know what this individual looked like before and I’m sure they love their new look, however, not everyone would agree and I can’t imagine rolling up to Walmart and be greeted by this look. I don’t have anything against tattoos as long as they’re hidden when it comes to working with the public. I just happen to strongly believe that it would be difficult for someone with a full face tattoo to find employment in many areas. No matter how sweet and charming someone may be, appearance matters in the workforce.
2. Facial holes.
I’m just SMH at the “hole” facial holes fad. I understand to each his or her own but I personally don’t want to stare at someone’s teeth when I have to go to my library OR ANYWHERE. Not even at the dentist office. Just imagine, being really sick, going to your doctor’s office with nausea, and having one of these individuals take your vital signs. My first reaction would be to upchuck. And when it comes to modification like this, people are looking for a reaction. They probably wouldn’t like minie. My already high blood pressure would cause me to have a stroke right then and there. I don’t have any issue with piercings, as long as I don’t have to look at them. I wouldn’t hire you. Your unemployment would be safe.
3. Extreme fingernails.
While this is an easy fix (clip clip clip) I still had to add it to my list because how, just how, would anyone be able to work with these? I mean really. I think well kept, well-manicured semi-long fingernails are appropriate for the workplace but can you really wait on tables with these things? I’d be scared one of them would break off on my table. Or worse, fall into my meal. Could you type on a computer? Can you bag groceries with them? I can just about promise that you won’t have to worry about being hired for a job with extreme fingernails if that is your goal. Your jobless situation is safe.
4. Facial modifications. In a word, HORNS.
Those horns. The horns people. I can’t even address the implants or the pointy piercings because I can’t stop looking at those horns. Horns. I just can’t even look at this to type anything inspiring. Nuff said. H.O.R.N.S.
5. Dyed eye tattoos. The red one above, the black one below.
“Eye” just don’t get the eye tattoos. Even worse than the horns are the dyed black eyes. I mean I’d probably wet my pants if I had to stare at them no matter where I was. Seriously, unless you want to work in a tattoo parlor, or possibly as an entertainer, I don’t see how the dyed eyes would be accepted at many places of employment. It would only take me one time to drive up to my bank teller and have to stare at dyed eyes before I switched banks. That’s the stuff of nightmares.
