Some local Starbucks workers are looking like they tangle with cats.

Theyâ??ve taken to putting bandages over piercings to meet the letter of Starbucksâ?? dress code, which minimizes the number of earrings and other piercings visible to customers.

Band-Aids beat the hassle of taking them out, the workers say.

And perhaps assert a dash of flinty individualism.

Is Starbucksâ?? dress code appropriate?
