my oldest girl (16) wants to get a lip and another ear pirceings and maybe even a tounge pirceing after she moves out, ( I'm very open to pirceings) but im worried about her job. She is a nanny and loves what she does and is good at it, but i wanted to know would you let a girl with a lip pirceing ect. babysit your kids?
please tell me the reason you would or would not.

  • Depends on how many and whether i knew her or had recommendations from others about her. But i'd be like that for anyone....piercings or not.

  • I wouldn't because it sets a bad example. Excessive and odd piercings, whether you agree with it or not, do limit job opportunities.

  • Bad idea

  • I wouldnt mind. Plus she can get a clear retainer so noone could see it when shes working. But she will have to wait a couple weeks so it can heal.

  • I work in the early childcare field and as long as she does get tons of awkward face piercings and as long as those piercings are flat and not hoops or other things kids can grab on then she should still be able to find a job.

  • Not a big deal considering you cant spell piercing. J/K
    seriously though I would leave it up to her. Her life and she can always take them out. They arent a tattoo.

  • depends on her recommendations. I try not to judge a person by looks.

  • of course I would let someone with pericing be a nanny at my house. some of the worst people in the world wear a suit and tie.and if someone doesnt want to hire her because of her looks then she prolly wouldnt want to work for them anyways.

  • When she graduates from college and starts looking for a different type of job, the piercings may very well be a liability.
