What about the workforce though? It was common practice to hide tattoos and piercings, especially when interviewing and in the office. There will always be those professions that probably won't change their opinions of body mods like law or medicine. However, tech is a different story entirely. With the onslaught of tools that have made becoming an entrepreneur more easily attainable, there have been younger C level people. Naturally, this has emphasized quirky startup culture and the younger generations that seek it out...who, more often than not, have body mods [like me!]. But that alone isn't enough to truly act as a catalyst for body mod acceptance in the work place. Which is why some seriously respectable gurus have come out of the wood work in recent years and proudly displayed their individuality for all to see. So people of the body mod revolution, look to your leaders below. If they can be successful and modified, so can you. Attention should be paid to what's on paper, your credentials, regardless of how your modified - just because you have tattoos or stretched ears doesn't make you any less competent!
