I'm at the beginning of my developer career and one question kinda haunts me: does the look of the developer matters in his or her chances to get the job?
I'm talking about tattoos and piercings, the most common, evident and "hated" body modifications the companies tend to not like at all.
I personally care about my look and about what I'm wearing, but even if my tattoos aren't directly visible with a normal shirt on, my piercings (lip, ear and a nose bridge) are very evident.
What's your opinion about this? Have you had any experiences either as a recruiter or as an employee?
