    I have the following that I hide or are hidden:

    Lip (leave stalk in - take ball off)
    X 2 microdermals in collar bone (usually hidden with clothes)
    Nape (covered with clothes)
    Nipple (hidden)
    Tongue
    Navel

    I have added as I have gone along have worked here for 13 years so just gradually added along the years, never had anything said to me but think if I put my lip piercing in or had anymore I think they would start moaning....

    Not sure where we all stand with human rights on this issue????

    I really dont see what the problem is as long as its small and descret??
    Rook (left ear)
    Tragus (right ear)

    Tongue
    Nipple (right)

    Please excuse my ignorance lol...but what would be an offensive hairstyle then? and whats unnaturally coloured? do you mean bright pink or something like that? because although my hairs not bright pink its got quite chunky highlights. browns and blonde/golden e.t.c...

    Oh my god thats so sad :( I would hate to have to give up my piercings. I hate taking them out for even a minute lol. Or even change my hair.

    Although i understand where your coming from i would hate to change myself for anyone or anything, thats why i'm grateful that i can please myself.

    Haha thats not my wording "Offensive" hairstyle would be anything slightly out of the ordinary, shaved bits, mohawks, dreadlocks etc. Yeah unnatural colours, basically anything other than blonde/brown/black/auburn. You could get away with chunky highlights, but anything green/blue/pink/purple/etc is out of the question!

    Thats true but i'd rather that, because if someone thinks its acceptable to dislike you based on a piercing i'd rather not know them anyway.

    i suppose it depends on the circumstances but i don't think i would readily give up my freedom for a job.

    i noticed someone posted about human rights - well sadly piercings are not classed as that sort of freedom - in fact in the US in 2006 the government passed a law which meant it was completely legal for an employer to demand its female employees wear makeup! seriously! how sexist and archaic is that?! but only passed a couple years ago. crazy eh?

    Heh I have a couple of weeks off at the minute and have blue hair! Making the most of freedom. I would kill for dreads at some point too, but it aint happening anytime soon. I can see dreadlocks causing a major stir, mainly I would think because people associate dreadlocks with being dirty, and with the whole infection control thing.. Doesn't look great on the NHS!

    I rambled

    But thats what annoys me, things like that, why do people associate dreadlocks with being dirty? or look at people with tattoos and piercings differently? Grrrr annoys the hell out of me lol.

    Its just bad stereotyping isnt it, people associate them with not washing etc. But its complete bull, there are plenty of FAR dirtier people working for the NHS

    Its like people always look at me like I'm about to mug them/rob them, I was in the bank today and I got the filthiest looks ever. I swear they thought when I walked up to the desk I was going to get a knife out my trousers! Um no, I'm just cashing a cheque!

    when i was little (many years ago lol) my dad had long hair and used to wear a biker jacket (he was a large bloke too), he would take me to the park and to the swimming, back then silly old ladies would cross the street to avoid him, or clutch their handbags tightly when walking round him - i couldnt understand why anyone would think my dad would hurt them when he was so gentle. you would think that times have changed but really when i read that i doubt it. :(
