Tattooed and Pierced Babysitter

I just wanted to get some opinions on what you ladies think about having a babysitter with piercings and tattoos. My babysitter has a lip piercing and is heavily tattooed but she is always wearing jeans and a long sleeved shirt so you cannot see her tattoos.
she is amazing she loves the kids and my kids love her. Im just wondering, If you were to interview some one who had tattoos and piercings would you hire them?

I would have agreed, but we had the best nanny of all time when my daughters were young. She dressed like a Latina prostitute, and had several tattoos, but she was THE nicest and most giving babysitter ever. We absolutely loved her. My husband is no longer with us, but I still stay in touch with her. One of the most warm-hearted, caring, loving souls on the planet.

I'm more concerned about whether that person, male or female, is a good babysitter than whether they have colors or holes in their skin.
I look pretty conservative. I don't show a lot of skin, my typical outfit is jeans and a baggy t-shirt. I don't have any tattoos and I only have my ears pierced once.
But my sister has about half a dozen piercings and 4 (I think) tattoos :P It doesn't bother me at all. I've personally found that the *out of the norm* type of people, funky hair, tattoos, piercings, etc, tend to be more laid back and fun anyways :P (not saying that those without are *boring* in any way. Just been my experiences)

What matters most? The fact she is good with your children or that she has tatooes and piercings that make her look weird to others? I think that if she has excellent references from others she has worked for, has a great relationship with your children, and you are satisfied with her then why worry about the outward appearences? I would hire her in a heartbeat if she came with those good references and had a great work history with other families and my kids liked her.

I am heavily tattooed,took all my piercings out though.I actualy tattoo.If she is great with the kids and your kids love her then what are you worried about?Why do people always think that tattooed people are bad,evil,or junkies?I dont do drugs,i am polite and i care alot about other people.It doesnt matter how a person looks on the outside.Its the inside what counts!And i hate it when people judge me because of my tattoos.I know alot of tattoo artists that are great with kids,even better and more fun then lots of people that arent tattooed.And i find alot of kids think the tattoos are cool. When it comes to hire a babysitter the important thing is that the person takes good care of the kids,and that the kids like the matter tattooed or not.Black or not.Fat or not. Its like the saying "dont judge a book by its cover".
