As an employee of Petsmart, I feel like I am not able to really express myself. We are not allowed to have any type of unnatural color in our hair, no visible tattoos and only two piercings in each ear. This is 2013 and the world has changed and so should Petsmart's dress code. Tattoos are part of a person, we get them for reasons and they are things we appreciate and love. As long as they are not vulgar we should be allowed to have them visible. I have a kitty tattoo on my left arm and customers compliment it all the time. Piercings should be allowed as long as they are not excessive. They aren't a big deal to customers anymore. Most of our clients have them! Lastly and my main concern, colorful hair. My hair is half purple and half blonde. I have gotten a ton of compliments from all our clients and not once has it made a customer uneasy. It is my personal form of expression, and part of my being unique and different. I love my job, but I need to be able to express myself! It's not bothering or hurting anyone. It's bringing culture and uniqueness to our salon. It makes the customers feel more relatable and at ease. People hair stylists are able, or encouraged to be more unique. Why can't pet stylists?

Allow employees to have colorful hair, visible tattoos and piercings.

      I have tattoos and i have no problem with them. More people with tattoos need jobs. Petsmart should allow people to be themselves.

      This is important to me because I had to take out my nose ring that was a staple to my personality. Everybody loves me in petsmart, I have gauges my boss never said anything to me about those. I want to get my nose re-pierced I loved that thing.

      My arms are covered in tattoos and I have several facial piercings. This is important to me because this is who I am and I should have the option of doing what I like to do despite the fact that I'm not what everyone wants me to be.

      So piercings and tattoos can now be visible but they still haven't mentioned anything about the fun hair colors! I'm a groomer and I'm constantly chalking and "tattoo"ing dogs, but I have to keep my pink ombre hidden in a bun.
