I have to disagree with Jerry Milburn in regards to his complaint that people are being discriminated against because of their tattoos. Apparently, he did not realize that many people, like myself, do not care one bit for tattoos, and whether it is fair or not, people do judge you by appearance. To me, a tattoo or piercing anything other than your earlobes is unsightly and unprofessional. If I were to do business with someone such as a state park ranger, I would not want to see a flaming skull or pentagram on his or her forearm. I also would not want to see them with a piercing of their eyelid.
To even compare characteristics such as skin or hair color, race, or gender to what you put on your body by choice is absurd.
