I'll cop to a bit of "old school mentality" for sure.It is interesting how the same "old school mentality" that taught us things like "Dont judge a book by a cover" is quick to judge a human by his/her appearance.
If you show up for a job interview wearing so much hardware stuck in you and so much ink all over you that you look freaky I will probably take you at face value. I may not have anything against you but the job will go to an applicant who hasn't defaced himself.
You see the freedom swings both ways. You have the freedom to stick metal in your lips and your nose and I have the freedom to hire someone else.
Now if only more people would do that, it might leave more openings for the rest of us. LOL Then again, it might just redefine normal and that is a scary prospect.

I go away for the day and look what happens!
Number one...to who ever asked if I feel better now that I made fun of these two, the answer is yes, yes I do.
Number two...the point to the pictures is to illustrate how ridiculous it is to blame others (in this case big business) when you, in fact, are the reason you can't find a job because YOU have made yourself unmarketable.
Number three...the two in the pictures are obviously over the top with their piercings and tattoos. I can guarantee you they have severe emotional problems because of what they've done to themselves. This kind of body altering falls into "body mulitation". That is a mental disorder.
Number four...when people who do these things are discriminated against it's their fault. When someone shows up at a job looking like that it's hardly the same as a minority showing up and being discriminated against.
Number five...for you young whippersnappers (love that word)...I was a teen in the 60's and believe me, there's not one thing your generation has done that we didn't do first, and probably better.
The guy with the purple hair is in a rock band and makes millions and the other guy is in the guiness book of world records in which he has netted over 5 million in $$. I remember watching the pierced guy on tv a few years ago adding more hardware and ink to make the record even more unachieveavle.

People do these things because they like them and to make statements. Statements about the art they like, the people or things they care about, their beliefs, etc. It's their free choice to do so.
A business owner has the right to say no to hire them as well.
What I find interesting is that a lot of people who get a lot of tattoos or piercings, to make whatever statements they wish by the act, feel so discriminated against when others don't like it. It was your choice to do such and that's cool, but it also cool for others to disagree with your statements or the way you choose to display them.
