I've got a customer...he just hit 30 and he's never had a decent job...he's got tats you can't cover up...like on his hands and on his head...he's been going through laser surgery to get them removed so he can get a better job. It's just the way it is in this country...at least in the Midwest...makes me glad I only got piercings when I was a kid. They are all gone and no painful laser removal.

Well I dont have any on my hands or neck or face and I respect being around family wearing long sleeves etc. But I was at a porn convention ffs. Are you telling me I can't get a job at a comic store now cause I have tats? I knew I shoulda talked to you more in Vegas but Laura was so nice to me I skipped it.

I have seen some pretty bad tats in the past and I too hated tats at one time. But then as I realized some ppl have bad tats (one's that look like a child drew them) and some ppl have good tats (obviously done by a professional). I put you and Johan in the good tats catergory. :2cents:

I heard laser surgery doesn't work that well, it leaves white spots.

I have tats and I have nothing against them it's a form of self expression and as long as they are done right I don't see much of a problem. As far as employment it depends where you live and what type of job you are looking for as well as where your tats are.

That's discrimination! By judging someone by their appearance rather then their education, work related experience, ability to communicate with people and so on, you are not only hurting that person but yourself also. You are taking the chance of passing up on someone that could have the potential to be an outstanding employee, because their appearance is not the same as your. That is not only a bad way to run your business but your also setting yourself up for a lawsuit.

Although I think that if you know the profession you are going into, you should take that into consideration and get the tattoos in places that are easily covered up by clothing. I have two. One on my foot and one on my back ;)

I dissagree. I don't care how well the person works, if it was up to me to hire someone and they showed with a bunch of tats visible I wouldn't hire them. But that would only apply to what their job discription was. If they were working in the back and the customers wouldn't see them then I wouldn't care how they looked. It also has to do with the business. Programing and net type stuff is a different ballgame. I think people kinda expect to see long hair, tats and even a nerdy kinda of appearence. In fact I was commenting on it at the convention. I saw a few people at various booths in suits. While I appreciated their devotion to a proffesional appearance I avoided them. To me it screamed newbie or anal retentive. If I wanted an lawyer I expect a suit. If I have questions about porn I look for the more casual appearance because they're mostly likely to be the ones who've been doing this the longest.

I completely see both sides I just don't think it's open and shut. In most cases I would have well groomed and clean cut looking people in positions that delt with the public. Long hair, tats and piercings shouldn't be dealing with the public. For example I used to go to Blockbuster a lot. Then they hired some kid that had his lip pierced. It just looked annoying on him and I just wanted to slap him and pull it out. I didn't care how good he was at his job if he was at all. I just found it annoying and dissrespectful so I just don't go there any more. I mean have a little respect for your job, not everyone cares that you're just sooo cool with your tats and piercings.

However, porn as I said is an example of how the same look to me says they know what they're doing. As I recall most of the Extreme people have either tats or piercings and my first impression of them was nothing but professionalism all the way. But if I walked in to the video store and saw one of them working, I'd turn around and walk out. (Assuming I didn't know them.)

There's just something I accept and some I don't. However, I do think that an employer has the right to hire whomever they want. I don't care why they hired them, if they only hire white people or only hire black people, I don't care. It's their business. But, as a customer I do business with whom I feel comfortable with end of story.

And on a side note, after meeting lazzlo I have a feeling he fully aware of his look and has a pretty fair idea of what's appropriate and what isn't. I don't think he'd walk in to an average customer service job wearing jeans and a Megadeath tshirt. I think he would dress for the job he was applying for and would probably get it.

I just hate the concept of "You have to accept for who I am". No, I don't. I can like you or not like you for any reason I want. If a person doesn't respect their job or the customers then why should I respect them.

And for the record to the tat haters, I would not show up to a job interview in a fucking t-shirt! Nor do I ever want to be a watch salesman. Plus the fact I have had a solid job as a pressman at a big Toronto newspaper since I was 16 and I am 33 now! And I still like it. I'm an old fashioned blue colla brawla! I don't get shit tats, all are original and wacky and I like them and I have a cool girlfriend. So there! Don't hire me.

Hey, you asked if you are GQ, if that's not an invitation to make commends about your appearance, I don't know what is. GQ models don't have tats, that was my point.

You had something to say to me in Vegas that you didn't? Or is that code for you wanted to hit me? Cause I would have let you hit me, no problem. I'm always happy to help a Canadian get arrested, deported and banned from entering the United States for a decade. My advice is make it a good punch so it's worth it. :)

Nope. Dress codes are legal and include any type of body work. I used to have to take out my piercings at every job I ever held due to company dress codes. Tats are the same thing...although if you cover them for your interview and keep them covered while at work, you'd be fine. But if you have some that can't be hidden, you're screwed. It's perfectly legal for a company to make a dress code that says no visible tattoos as it's a body modification, no one is born with them. It's not like saying we won't hire black people or something.

You never mentioned anything about a dress code in your initial post. Yes I know a dress code can be enforced and your employee held accountable to that standard. But your comment was if you see someone with tattoos come in and apply for a job you won't even consider them for employment and that is just plain wrong. You never mentioned anything about an interview or post hiring. Which leads me to believe if I walk into your store and asked for an application and you saw a tattoo on my arm you would throw that application out. Not even giving any consideration to what I would or would not wear to an interview.

Bullet, your comments seem to contradict themselves. You decided that you liked the people from Extreme because you knew us before hand, but you did not know our appearance. That appearance did not matter to you because you when you met us you knew you liked us for who we are. Now if we worked at BlockBuster and you walked in and did not know us, you say you would leave? How would you then find out if you liked us or not?

Your discriminating because of looks! Yet if you can't see that person and get to know them first and like their personality its ok what they look like when you do meet. Don't you think by walking out of BlockBuster based on someones appearance and nothing more that is not the best descion you could make? Just because two people don't look or dress alike doesn't mean they don't have things in common or mutual interests.

You also said that you avoided people that dressed proffesional on the convention floor. How do you know that a person in a suit is not someone who you can do business with? Maybe the guy in the suit spent 20 working a mainstream business where a suit was required and he still feels that is the proper way to dress. How do you know that the guy in the suit wasn't looking to hire a designer and willing to pay 100k a year? And that job could have been yours because you spoke to him and he liked what you had to say.

Judging people by the way they dress, the color of their hair, and tattoos is distrimination. Just like judging someone because of their ethnic background, skin color, or religion. Each and every person is different and why would anyone want to avoid someone for those reasons? No one said you had to wear a suit because your friends with someone who does.

I do not judge people by looks. That is fucked. My pic was a joke about being GQ, I am the complete opposite. But I guess some people, a very small percentage I may add, just have to post negative stuff, and if its about my appearence, so be it, its a free world to do so I guess. At least I know where not to apply for jobs here. Thanks for the heads up!

I'm a walking contradiction. :)



Ok, I don't walk in to blockbuster looking for friends. I want someone there I feel I can approach and not someone who looks like he's just trying to get back at his parents. It's really as simple as that. I have lots of friends who dress in all different kinds of ways. I even went through my Sid & Nancy phase were every night was just another slam dance and I had blue hair. I just think some jobs it's ok to look like a punk rocker and some jobs it's not. It has to do with style and class. Seems some have too much of one and not enough of the other.


It has nothing to do with discrimination. It has to do with people feeling that their opinion and desire to be different actually matters and that people care. People don't see someone with a shit load of tats and piercings and think, "Ohhh! He's so cool! He must be very unique." They tend to think, not trustworthy, bad hygiene, intimidating, immature. It's basic psychology. Whether we want to admit it or not we all make first impressions and we all have them. It's only human nature. What separates us is how we deal with them. Now, when I walk in to Blockbuster and see some kid in there looking like an idiot with 8 different tats and even piercings I'm going to think as most would that it's unprofessional for this kind of business. In my case I'm not gonna deal with them because I am the customer. I am the very reason they should be there. And if they don't care enough about their appearance at work then they don't need my business. But, it doesn't mean I would like shun the kid and think he's not worth while and not worth being my friend. I just wouldn't do business with him. But if he wants to hang out after work and have a beer that's fine.

I just think we have become so arrogant that we expect that every one should respect the way we choose to live, dress, who we date, our religion and so on. It's bullshit. I tolerate a lot of things. It doesn't mean I give a shit, I care, or respect the way others may choose to live. I don't think I have to. All I have to do is tolerate it. We're talking about jobs, not dating and making friends. I would agree that if someone refused to get to know someone just because of the way they look then it's that person's loss. I don't think it makes me a bad person if I expect my employees to look and act professional. But, it gets harder every year for employers now because every fucking thing gets turned in to some kind of discrimination. It's not what discrimination was intended to be. But everyone has to respect the way I want to live. Well, if that is the case then we might as well start letting all the rapists and killers go, because is it really so wrong to judge them because they happen to believe in a different way of life. Just because most of us value life doesn't mean that we all should does it? I mean if someone wants to start killing people because it's who they are, shouldn't we let them? Who are we to dictate to them how to live and what's appropriate and what's not?

The simple fact is that the end game of any civilization is total destruction. Because, eventually people will realize that there is no right or wrong, there is only opinion. Society fails when they forget that. Every society is based on the opinions of the many, not the few. Once that isn't the case any more then there is only anarchy left.

Most definitely discrimination sucks. I also love South Florida for it's diverse culture. But I still think Lazzlo could pass for GQ. BTW, Many of those models just have their tats photoshopped out :2cents:

Just because he is a hot male model and he shaves his body does not make him gay.

You never mentioned anything about a dress code in your initial post. Yes I know a dress code can be enforced and your employee held accountable to that standard. But your comment was if you see someone with tattoos come in and apply for a job you won't even consider them for employment and that is just plain wrong. You never mentioned anything about an interview or post hiring. Which leads me to believe if I walk into your store and asked for an application and you saw a tattoo on my arm you would throw that application out. Not even giving any consideration to what I would or would not wear to an interview.

Of course I'd throw it out. You need to come dressed up to get your application just as you need to be dressed up when you go to your interview. Your interview isn't your first impression. I'll also throw out your application if you can't use proper English, you dress like a thug, act like a thug, seem the least bit shady, or do anything else that would make me uncomfortable leaving you alone with $100,000 worth of cash and product every day. It all depends on the job though. If I was hiring for a music store, I'd probably be looking for trendy employees that I thought could relate to my customer base. The nerds that come into our stores need non-threatening fellow nerds to serve them. Our best manager is this chubby gay guy with a soft, friendly voice and demeanor. Everyone loves him. I'm probably the worst employee in the company right now as I'm not a nice person and don't try to be.

Chris, come on...customer service position in the most conservative state in the Midwest...it's just a reality of life that people are going to have this attitude. It has nothing to do with my personal feelings...the dude I mentioned earlier that's getting tattoos removed from his hands and head is a buddy of mine but I still couldn't hire him to work in my store. He's a scary looking guy...he's got tattoos all over his body, face, head, and he's bald. He'd scare the hell out of the soccer moms that bring their kids in here every day. He knows it too, which is why he's getting his tattoos removed...he's tired of working in the back room at a donut shop and wants to get a real job at an office somewhere.

He's a straight edge punk and we have a similar anti-drug philosophy on life but he's a bit more hardcore about it than I am. He thinks people that smoke weed should get the death penalty...heh. But because of the way he looks, he gets pulled over constantly and has his car searched for drugs.

I understand where your coming from when you talk about first appearances. But I've learn over the years that good employees are hard to find. So I'm not going to over look someone because of their tattoos. Now if your specifically going to talk about someone with tats on their face and head or people that do not keep a good appearance that's once thing. But someone who is dressed clean and does have tattoos showing should not be overlooked. Once you interview them and decided to hire that person you can tell them they must keep the tattoos covered. But your not even getting to that point, you already disqualified them.

I was manager for Home Depot for many years so I've worked with and hired all different types of people. So I'm not just talking out of my ass here, I do have experience to back my opinion. But maybe the fact the your in the Midwest and I worked in NYC and Long Island we are coming from two completely different worlds. But people are people, no matter where you live and if everyone uses location as an excuse discrimination will never end.
