Man with DEVAST8 face tatto can't get job

A New Zealand man with a large DEVAST8 face tattoo says it is preventing him from finding a job.
Mark Cropp got the tattoo - done by his brother - a few months ago when he was drunk on contraband homebrew in prison, but admits he now regrets the decision.
The 19-year-old told the New Zealand Herald that he has struggled to find work since his release from prison after contacting several recruitment agencies.
In a desperate attempt to find work, he posted a selfie on the Auckland Jobs Facebook group appealing for someone to give him a job.
“I’m keen as to work but have one thing that is stopping me and that’s my tattoo on my face,” he wrote.
“I don’t have a CV as of yet but have worked at NZ brick distributors before, also a scrap metal yard … Keen as on job or work place that will take me on.”
He told the New Zealand Herald: “One employment place said to me ‘I wouldn't employ you with that on your face, I wouldn’t even take a second look at you.’ I’ve had other people that just shrugged and laughed at me.
“I just want any job at the end of the day … I’m sick of being on the dole.”
Cropp pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery after pulling a knife on a tourist in 2015 and was given a two-year sentence.
The teen’s determination to find work has paid off and he has received job offers in scaffolding and construction since posting on Facebook.
A tattoo laser removal company has also offered to remove the DEVAST8 from his face for free.
