Even though it clearly states in header of my blog that I am a professional body piercer, I will address this question.
You are right, if I tried to get a job at McDonald’s right now I wouldn’t have a chance. But that is why I waited until I had a Career as a professional body piercer to get my face worked on. I honestly have never had trouble getting jobs in the past as my resume is impressive as hell. I also have a college degrees from Umass boston. I have been a personal trainer, a soldier, a bouncer, and even on the corporate side of the snapple corporation. I really hate questions like this because just because someone is highly modified doesn’t mean they don’t have there shit together. Which no matter how nice you ask it is still implied.
So no I have never had trouble getting a job. But that doesn’t mean you should go out and get your face tattoo’d without having a career or being finically stable.

Major in musical theory and composition, and a degree in graphic design. I also used to co-own and manage a recording label back in the late 90’s/ early 2000’s.
Why, glad you like it!
No I don’t feel that it’s too expensive. If anything it’s pretty affordable to have a hand polished piece of jewelry with a lifetime warranty.
In regards to the entirety of the pricing, you’re also paying for a service. That payment is both feeding a piercer and the business that employs them, to keep food on their table and also profit towards a small business.
You don’t need that piercing, you want that piercing. I want a lot of things, I also work hard to make money to pay for the things I want. If college is your top priority, then do college for now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. If you want extra money to pay for things, get a second job, maybe tutor an underclassman, sell some things you don’t use anymore.
I mean absolutely no offense saying this. But as a piecer, I care about doing my job right, not what your income situation is. That means properly executing a piercing and using quality jewelry that is properly suited for your body.
