Most companies today do not have policies around tattoos and/or piercings, other than their impact on safety in the workplace (i.e. piercings would generally not be allowed in a production environment). Regarding other aspects of an employment search, as long as you present yourself in a professional manner, tattoos or piercings should have no impact your ability to obtain a job. Your qualifications for the position is what is most impactful.
