I employee between 25-30 painters, most of them with tat's and piercings and never had a problem. I myself have 4 piercings in my ears and one in the nose, and a few tat's on my sholders. I think as long as your guys look proessional, with whites, and they behave and work in a good manor, tat's and piercings isn't an issue.

Do you find that the whites make a difference? I wonder sometimes if customers are as indifferent to whites as they seem to be to tats and piercings.

I used to have hair that was own to my belt line, I cut it off only for a young lady I met while driving bands on tour that had cancer and couldn't afford a wig, we had a wig maker there who shaved my head pretty much bald, I have done this 4 times since then. It never made the HO uncomfortable or my old boss, the only problem was when my hair would dip into oil based paints.

Hey No Problemo. Everyone has a different opinion, I just don't want any of the guys looking like they just came from the TV program California Ink. I also will never hire someone driving a noisy motorcycle.
