Reader: If you pollute your body with piercings and tattoos, expect low-paying service jobs
While it sometimes seems that hip new restaurants require that employees have cool tattoos and piercings, other spots have strict policies against piercing, tattoos and other body ornamentation. Jenn Wohletz went after such prudey-pants policies last week, in her list of five reasons restaurant employees should be allowed to have tattoos and piercings.
But some readers pierced holes in her arguments.
I like to go to restaurants where the staff has a lot of piercings and tattoos because it's a great way to teach my kids a lesson.
I make it clear to them that if they pollute their body with piercings and tattoos, then low-paying service industry jobs will be the only opportunity available to them in life.
I plan on taking my 13-year-old to Old Major for his birthday so he knows where he will end up if doesn't shave or exercise.
Do you care if your server at Old Major -- or any other restaurant -- has tattoos and/or piercings. Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation on pierced/tattooed servers already under way here.
