    People regard and think about what you ‘put in the shop window’, and PC complaints about this fact is just more hypocrisy.

    A putative NCIS lab tech with tats and piercings could be simultaneously cute and capable in very limited contexts. (Intimate friends would be, ah, ‘demotivated’ by seeing her back with a giant Celtic cross tat.) Yet such tattoos would show up hugely at any company picnic or other ‘team-building’ outing, wouldn’t it?

    In former times, tattoos and scarification indicated either attainment as a warrior (met the enemy hand-to-hand and survived) or societal status (chief wife etc.). Nowadays in the West such marks can signal a self-indulgence like unto that of the obese.
