I hate to put it like this but most job interviews are very big on your appearance and how you hold yourself than they should be on your answers and responses to the questions and your resume assuming you have one.

Nopre not hard at all. As long as you are applying at a cannibal butcher shop. (jk) Yes, most hiring directors are older folks to whom a visible tattoo is weird. Piecing and stretches in a serious job? Not likely
I used to work for a large company and one of my duties was to interview people for the art department. There was a quiet rule (not posted) about ear plugs, piercings, and tattoos: if they have any, interview with the short list. This means that if there were piercings and tattoos, we were to ask only a few questions and see them out. Hiring them was not possible because our clients were frequently in the department interacting with clients and having anti-social markings were considered unprofessional and unacceptable. Our clients were successful, middle-aged to older people who presented a professional appearance. We never told anybody that was way they weren't hired. If someone came in with equal qualifications, but no body art, we did the entire interview. There are lots of jobs where body art is fine, but they are limited, lower paying jobs (some retail shops, hairdressing for young people, tattoo parlour, etc.). I guess you just have to decide what you want.
