In a recent interview with the press, a local pizza owner said that there were some people he hadn't hired, because they had too many tattoos, visible body rings, and the like. The interviewer said that she didn't believe that was possible, given the average number of visible tattoos on the employees of that pizza parlor -- four ear rings, a nose ring, and at least one arm covered with tattoos. The pizza owner responded that it was, unfortunately, true. He felt sorry for those people he couldn't hire due to their appearance, because his business was usually their last chance of getting a job anywhere.
