No Ragrets!

Eh, okay maybe one.

Unemployed dad with enormous face tattoo can't get work

Mark Cropp just wants to to get a job and support his family, but something unique is holding him back.
A giant tattoo saying "DEVAST8" covers half of his face, and, perhaps not suprisingly, it's off-putting for potential employers.

The Oamaru-born teenager told the New Zealand Herald he had it inked a few months ago, while drunk on homebrew in a jail cell in Christchurch.

Why do I have the feeling that is not the only off putting thing about him in interviews for potential employers

Yeah, may have to do with were it was gotten and why he was there.

Do they have Tokyo Joe's in NZ? Seems he would fit right in at our local Tokyo Joe's, except maybe the convicted felon teen father part.

Nice story but really. The jail cell in Christchurch has a still in the back to make homebrew? Looks like that tattoo took many hours to do. Not something done in a few hours of free time in jail cell.

It shouldn't harm him, you can barely notice the tattoo...

You kinda have to appreciate the artistry, how the negative space in the A is split between the upper and lower lip, creating both a lip-tee and a Hitler 'stache. That was no accident.

Does the one over his left eyebrow say Lance Bass in cursive? I'm going to choose to believe that it does.

I was confused by that too.

 I suppose it does explain why I have never seen an episode of Locked Up Abroad from a New Zealand jail.

Who doesn't love a happy ending?

I guess the moral of the story is, if you're going to fuck up royally, do it to such extremes that the internet takes notice and pity.

A man with an overwhelming face tattoo who went viral by pleading for help getting a job has found a guardian angel with a laser. Mark Cropp, a 19-year-old man who had “DEVAST8” tattooed prominently across his face in prison, was inundated with job offers after revealing his employment troubles because of the ink, according to the Daily Mail. To offer even further help, a tattoo removalist offered up her services for free...

As far as those job offers, Cropp still hasn’t settled on one yet. 45 job offers have come in from throughout the country, but he says he’s waiting for “just the right one.”

Not surprisingly, this guy doesn't seem to want to work. He's had 45 job offers and hasn't accepted any. He's going to piss everyone off and in 3 months he will still be without a job. But, he'll have that awesome ink on his stupid head.

Shouldn't that be "DEVAST8-ing Jobstopper?"

As for the whole "Body Is A Temple" thing? Well, many ancient deities often enjoyed offerings of Sweets and Intoxicants
