just sort of a random question , wondering would you care if employers knew you had a piercing or tattoo? these days a lot of young people have hidden piercings and tattoo's. girls often have pierced belly button's that are hidden from view and some other piercings are popular as well. tattoo's are also very common and well hidden from view.
would you care if an employer or potential one knew you had something pierced or inked that was not visible during work? mean if you were trying to come across as the " good girl " to get the job would them knowing you had something pierced/inked make you come across as more wild / bad girl type?

It depends on the job. I was a nanny for two families. One was very religious and strict, the other was easy going and a bit hippie. With the former I covered my tats, with the latter I didn't feel like I needed to.
I should probably note that I have my entire back done with an evil medusa-like design, so it's not like I'm covering a butterfly on my ankle or a heart on my shoulder lol.
I've just finished my law degree so I would definitely cover up my tattoos for any potential employer. While I love them and don't regret them in the least, I do understand they aren't professional.2
