Appearing as Pagan in Public

When you're out in public, would a stranger be able to tell that you were a Pagan? Do you wear pentacles or other Pagan symbols or "witchy" clothes? A lot of Pagans seem to gravitate towards the color black. If you wear a lot of black do others assume that you are a Pagan?

No, I do not appear Pagan in my dress or the items I decorate myself with.

With my Triple Goddess Tattoo on the back of my neck,and the pentacle ring I wear, if they know what they mean, strangers would pick me out pretty quick.

I often wear my pentacle, but otherwise I just look like a 43 year old school teacher and mother of 2 :-)

I have a pentacle necklace and I don't wear lots of black. I don't think my appearance screams Pagan at all.

I just wanted to respond to this - I don't wear a lot of obviously "Pagan" clothing or jewellery, but it is not because I'm afraid to be who I am, or am afraid of people judging me. I just don't care for over-stated jewellery or body art!

The university I went to had a club for Wiccans and one for Pagans other than Wiccan, although I am sure there Wiccans in that one too.
