piercings at work....

does anyone know where i can work that wont sack me if i get my lip pierced. at the moment i work on a deli counter in a supermarket, and my boss said that if i get it done he'll sack me. something about it being a health and hygiene hazard? anyway, i was just wondering if there is any truth in what he says, and if there is, where can i work that will let me have a lip piercing? i'm 16.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    If u think about it it is a hazard. U drop that baby in the food and someone`s gonna have to have a ring-ectome.
    Can`t u just take it out at work and wear it outside of work.

    Working with food or in a factory, they don't like piercings.
    Maybe an art shop or a book shop; somewhere less formal that allows you to be yourself rather than wear a crappy uniform.

    I work in a book shop and I've got dark blue hair & will be getting my eyebrow pierced, so not all places are the same.

    Some offices may let you work for them, but probably not if you are client-facing (serving customers). They generally want a clean-cut image portrayed. I had to shave my beard when I asked to serve customers. (Admittedly it was scruffy!)
    I think there are hygeine issues involved too. There should be some info on the 'net somewhere <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;


    End of $0.02 ;)

    If you get your lip pierced, you're gonna have to wait for a while before you can take it out. My advice is not to wear the stud on the end of it, so you can suck it in so peeps can't see it - that's what i do.

    due to insufficient funding, the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off.
