Protect from Employment Discrimination on the Basis of Tattoos and Piercings.

This petition had 125 supporters

Employment is often difficult for those who chose to adorn visible tattoos and piercings. This is discrimination against a citizens free-will and personal beliefs. If someone chooses to be Christian and wear a cross, they cannot be withheld employment on that basis solely. If they are a registered voter with a certain party, that cannot be held against them for employment. Both are a citizens free choice. Yet, tattoos and to a lesser degree piercings, are still discriminated against, openly, in the workplace, particularly in professional and government areas. No law or court ruling to date, in any U.S. state or territory, protects the right to employment regardless of bearing body art. This lack of protection allows employers to use their own personal "image" beliefs to negatively judge someone who may be overly qualified for a position, yet not be considered on the grounds of visible tattoo(s) and/or piercing(s). 

If we are to live a free county, where a citizens right to free-will and right to chose individual  identity is a fundamental cornerstone without hindrance, how can we not protect the right to body art without discrimination?
