I'd Like Some Metal with Those Fries

I consider myself to be a pretty liberal, easy going kinda woman...and I kind of enjoy tattoos or...ahem...sorry - "body art".

What utterly repulses me, however, is facial piercings.  I surprised myself this afternoon by literally walking out of a Quiznos when I took a look at the girl making the sandwiches...oh...excuse me...the politically correct term is "sandwich artist"...I digress....anyway she had piercings not only on her eyebrow, nose and lip but also on both her cheeks!

To me, facial piercings are transparent billboards that scream "I make poor life decisions".

Mohawks, hair colour and small ear piercings, we can grow out of or change, but you're stuck with that mess on your face unless you undergo some surgery, and even then, there's always scarring.
And who wants to hire someone that looks like that to represent their company?  I certainly wouldn't. I get the whole "freedom of choice" thing but choices do have consequences and mucking up your face for the sake of trying to be "different" is not a good career move.

Like seriously, you want to "express yourself"...I get that, but with this form of expression comes responsibility...if you chose to walk around with nastiness sticking out of your face, the reality is that there is a possibility that it make affect you in a negative way, and part of that is you may be unemployable.
I'm not sure what statement you are trying to make.  Why you feel that this is somehow unique. You are being defiant to social norms. But your effort to stand out and be noticed is repulsing the crap out of me!
What the hell are you trying to express anyway? Can't you find another outlet? Sing a song, write a book...paint!

I'm sure the sandwich artist was polite, pleasant and attentive, and if I ever wanted to completely ruin my appetite for the sake of...I donno...maybe losing weight, then I know where to spend my lunch break. Until then I will go spend my hard earned cash on a business that cares about appearances and impressing me...the somewhat judgemental liberal customer.
