I don't want to make a deal of anything so in short I got into a brief argument about body mods and being able to find work with a friend of mine. The comment was kind of a low blow to me and has me in a weird place of uncerainty about things so to make me feel better and lift my spirts I ask a simple, what's your job?

believe nothing, no matter where you have read it, or who as said it, not even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and common sense.

I am a sort of personal assistant/secretary at an international academic mail-order bookstore. (phew that's quite a mouthful haha)

It's an office job and they really don't care what I look like, there's no dress code or anything. Very nice.

Used to work in hospitality (sandwich bar) and retail before, which sucked. The sandwich people didn't really care either, but nobody had very visible or extreme mods so I don't know how they would have reacted. The retail jobs I had all didn't allow people to have facial piercings or visible tattoos.

I work as an engineer for a small engineering software company developing computational models. I have an advanced degree in engineering, and my mods (1 1/2 inch ears, labret, 100+ hours of tattoos) haven't been an issue. It's really mostly what you know and what you can do that count.

I'm a massage therapist. In my line of work, they can't really say anything about it, because it's so alternative anyway, and most of the people doing it have mods.
I like the way my skin feels when I'm wearing my rainbow jacket.

I work on an offshore tugboat... oilfield in the gulf of mexico. They don't care what you look like as long as it doesn't hinder your ability to do your job. I have facial tats, the top of my head, sleved, large facial piercings, implants...
Look, the old bitch is back - yeah,

the attic room has been
locked up for far too long
