A teen father with a massive face tattoo posted a message to Facebook complaining that he can’t seem to find a job.
Mark Cropp, 19, got the tattoo while serving two years in prison for armed robbery, the Daily Mail reports.
Now that he’s out, he can’t seem to find a job to provide for his baby daughter.
“Hey im keen as to work but have one thing that is stoping me and thats my tattoo on my face,” Cropp wrote on Facebook. “Keen as on job or work place that will take me on.”
Cropp told the NZ Herald that he’s had people “that just shrugged and laughed at me.”
“I wouldn’t employ you with that on your face, I wouldn’t even take a second look at you,” he says on prospective employer told him.
“I was over people judging for my facial tattoo… that’s why I made the decision to put that photo on Facebook, to turn around and say ‘I am just a normal human being, you do not have to judge me because of the way I look,’” he said.
