    The earlobe-stretchers are called gauges. I, too, see no point in doing that to your ears. Tattoos and body piercings are okay if they’re tasteful and can be covered up most of the way or removed while at work. I think a lot of “young” people get them in the spur of the moment and don’t think about the implications of those decisions when it comes time to look for a real world job. That said, my husband has had his ear pierced since college, and no one in his previous job at a large law firm or in his current position at a children’s hospital has said anything about it. The law firm had a strict policy on tattoos – they had to be covered up / not showing or you would be sent home to put on a different outfit.

    Well, about the colored hair thing… I’m a 57 year young woman and I have short purple hair, have had for a few years.. I tried blue, pink, red and turquoise. Purple is my color. I get comments all the time, good ones.. I just say thank you and go on.I love it when small children say something and their moms try to either try and rush off or try to get them to be quite. . I think now I have more white that brown. . haha.. I love life and mainly I love GOD…
