    Hey, my question is fairly simple: how do teachers react to piercings and tattoos? I have one industrial piercing and a back tattoo and I have been accepted to LSE, UCL, KCL and Manchester. Would you say there is a possibility that I would be slightly disadvantaged? The back tattoo is not visible, not even only with a T-Shirt on, so I'm in the clear on this one. But what about my piercing? Cheers.

    They're not going to let you in just because you have piercings and tattoos.
    It's not a job!

    An induatrial piercing is technically two piercings that are conected together with a bar from the to of the ear to the side. Hard to describe. Google it

    I applied for Management, so as I presume that teachers think it's a bit unusual or slightly outrageous for a future business employee to have such an appearance. Do you know any econ or management students that have piercings or tattoos and still be treated equally?

    They honestly won't care an ounce. A girl on my course (Classics) has tattoos on her hands and neck. My friend who does law at Durham has an industrial piercing, and a helix piercing on the other ear. It really, really isn't an issue.

    That's nut! You must have a really really really high pain threshold.

    I can just imagine you lying down in the operating theatre room, with the surgeons trying to stich you up, and then you just go (you obviously opted out of going to sleep!):give me the needle and thread, I don't need you!

    Out of interest, how did you make sure the holes lined up? I like to do my own piercings (I have 6) but I can't work out how to get an industrial right using only a safety pin

    Loads of my coursemates have visible piercings and tattoos. No one cares, it's uni - there's no 'dress' code.

    If you're gonna do that at least use a needle (sterilise it first of course!) - it's so much easier.

    Of course, a professional piercer would be even better...
