Question: I’m interested in pursuing a career in astronomy and was wondering if, in the field of professional scientists, it is acceptable to have piercings or tattoos? I know in many professional settings it is not, so I’d like to be sure. Thanks in advance for your answer. – Emily
Answer: Astronomy is a pretty “laid-back” field. Few of us dress up in suits or even blazers for regular work day attire, and the dress code is considered “relaxed”. Piercings, tattoos, inventive hair styles, etc. are all welcomed.
