Hi Hannah,

I would suggest you check out this article I found on the topic of finding a job with piercings, tattoos and body modifications. It includes a list of some "body mod friendly" companies you can apply to. I would also take a look at this infographic that shows some interesting findings on the prevalence and acceptability of tattoos in the workplace. The general consensus is that it's up to you how much you cover for an interview. If you have a septum ring or other facial piercing, it may be worth-while to wear a smaller ring or even flip the ring up while you're in your interview to avoid distracting your interviewer. While an interviewer may not have a problem with your piercings, the shiny metal on or around your face may distract them while you're talking, which may lead to them not absorbing everything you're saying about your qualifications. Once you get an offer, I'd inquire about their individual policies on visible piercings and tattoos, as each company is different.

Hope this helps!

PS - As an example, I have gauges, and generally wear silicon tunnels at work that aren't shiny or flashy. Most people don't notice I even have them until I wear my hair back or point them out.

Yes there are a myriad of places that hire people who have piercings the issue with the piercings is though they have to either be clear studs or in areas that are not apparent or blaring out there you know if you can have one 10 gauge piercing in your nose we went chain run into another 4 gauge hole in your ear that's not going to fly anywhere but in the tattoo shop but I have ran numerous amounts of businesses from arcades to restaurants that certain amount of piercings are acceptable I mean if you have an absorbent amount of them you may have to take out the large majority of them but most places are pretty lenient with the whole tattoo and piercing thing it also depends on your job market
