Just yesterday we brought to you the story of the ‘DEVAST8’d bloke from New Zealand who had a face tattoo and complained he couldn’t find work. Well the tides have changed.
Mark Cropp, the 19-year-old father who got the DEVAST8 face tattoo in prison to scare off other prisoners, has apparently been inundated with job offers after he went viral from a Facebook post where he begged for a job, reports Daily Mail.
In the post, Cropp claimed that his face tattoo was stopping him from finding a job anywhere and thus preventing him from changing his life around.
The tattoo was carried out in prison with a straightened out bed-spring for a needle and burnt plastic and water as ink. As if it couldn’t get any worse the tat was executed after a few hours of drinking homebrew alcohol
But things are looking up for Mark as thus far he’s apparently been offered countless jobs in construction and scaffolding – and it doesn’t stop there.
Mark has also been offered laser surgery to remove his massively regretable tattoo which will begin as soon as next week.
Speaking on the rapid change of events, Mark said:
I just wanted to get out of prison and work hard and do right by my family so I am really pleased about the job offers I’ve had.
Hopefully now Cropp can work towards changing his life for the better!
