It’s actually quite difficult to find data on this subject, because the percentage changes so drastically based on the type of business.
In American society today, there is a lot weight put into one's overall appearance and presentably; this is especially true in the world of employment. Several studies have ball-parked the percentage of Americans who have their earlobes pierced today at around 83%, but more interestingly persons who have piercings in locations other than their lobes have risen to between 14 and 16 percent. In studies conducted at University of Illinois, it was found that persons who claimed the lowest household income were the most likely (by approximately 30%) to be pierced, tattooed or otherwise modified. Also of interest within the same study, those who are common-lawed, divorced, or widowed hold a higher percentage of both ink and piercings than persons who were never married. Our piercing professional, James from American Skin Art, first cleans the ear and marks three small dots where the piercings will go.

Step 1: Throw pineapple and coconut cubes into a blender or food processor and process into to small chunks (roughly the texture of crushed iced). Top drop belly rings are well suited to bottom belly piercings because of their unique design, but standard navel jewelry and double mount items can also be worn. For those who have multiple belly piercings, mixing and matching multiple types of jewelry is a great way to create a fun, modern look.

Even brilliant theoretical physicist Stephan Hawking has postulated that we humans aren’t alone in the universe, and many other progressive and modern scientific minds are on board with the idea of potential future visitation from aliens as well. Canada has some of the coolest money in the world, and if you need proof, they’ve even released a commemorative quarter in 2012 featuring imagery of Tecumseh, the Shawnee chief who helped defend Canada against invasion during the war of 1812, wearing an awesome tribal septum ring.
Some of our favorite pierced and tattooed musicians are Canadian too, like Avril Lavigne, Nickelback, Three Days Grace, Simple Plan, and the guys from Alexisonfire. Once thought of as the markings of illicit gang members and derelicts, tattoos have become increasingly popular all across the board. Even on the news, we’ve see older folks with tattoos getting featured more and more and the latest to hit the airwaves is 74 year old, Bette Hileman.
Hileman shattered another age-related stereotype that summer when she and her granddaughter had matching green lymphoma ribbons tattooed just above their right ankles.
And while a pair of recent surveys have found tattoos and body piercings rare among older Americans, local tattoo artists say stories like Hileman’s are becoming more common thanks to new advances in body art technology and a slow breakdown of some long-held taboos against this type of self expression by millennials and the youngest members of Generation X.
Body art of any kind is a rarity among older Americans, according to a 2010 report published by the Pew Research Center that found only 6 percent of the Silent generation’s members (people born before 1945) and 15 percent of baby boomers (people born between 1946 and 1964) had a tattoo that year.
These findings were echoed in a Harris Interactive poll that found only 11 percent of 50- to 64-year-olds and 5 percent of those who were 65 or older had a tattoo in 2012.
Maybe ita€™s a tribal arm band, orchids on the lower back playing peek-a-boo with coworkers, ora€”gulp!a€”theya€™re wearing it on their face a la Mike Tyson. As a country we have taken great strides to eliminate the discrimination against individuals in the workplace based on their gender, race, and religion. Just be sure to put out some berries and honey on your sweet tray, two of the bear’s favorite guilty pleasures. Back in 2012 she was diagnosed with lymphoma and that day changed her life in more ways than one. She got a second tattoo less than six months later, and convinced her late husband Phil to do the same.
Both surveys found more than a fifth of the population — 23 percent in the Pew survey, and 21 percent in the Harris poll — has at least one tattoo, and people in their 20s and 30s are twice, if not three times more likely, to get work done than members of their parent’s generations. But even if ita€™s that cute little leprechaun on their ankle, our latest survey results show visible tattoos at work could have a negative effect on your employees' pot of gold.A recent study from the Pew Research Center found nearly 40% of people between the ages of 18 and 29 have at least one tattoo, and body piercings are also a growing means of self-expression among people in this age group.
However, what we have not addressed as a country is the discrimination against people with tattoos and piercings.Currently in action to prevent discrimination in the workplace is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Navy and was very patriotic, but, like her, never pulled the trigger until she gave him the little push he needed to move forward. However, Title VII to only include protection from discrimination against race, religion, sex and national origin.
But if the 2,675 people we surveyed are any indication, there is a lot more going on when it comes to performance evaluations, raises, promotions, and making character assumptions about people based on their appearance.But who has the tattoos, what do people find objectionable about them, and to what extent?
So because tattoos and piercings do not fall under any of those categories and are considered alterable characteristics, they are not protected under the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This leaves companies with full power to fire or refuse to hire individuals with tattoos or piercings.
To fully protect tattooed and pierced individuals from discrimination in the workplace under the law, we have to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964’s Title VII to include tattoos and piercings within it’s categories under protection.
