Man With ‘DEVAST8’ Tattooed Across His Face Struggles To Find Work [VIDEO]

 Man With ‘DEVAST8’ Tattooed Across His Face Struggles To Find Work [VIDEO]

A father who had half of his face tattooed with the word ‘DEVAST8’ to scare off prison inmates has revealed his struggles to get a job.

19-year-old, Mark Cropp, recently spent two years in prison where he was serving a sentence for pulling out a knife on a tourist during a drug deal where Cropp was trying to sell fake cannabis.

Weirdly, in jail Cropp found himself in a cell with his brother who convinced him to get the ‘DEVAST8’ tattoo so that other prisoners would not pick on him, according to the New Zealand Herald.

But after serving his two-year sentence for armed robbery, Cropp has found the ink to be a stain on his job prospects in the free world.

Eventually after drinking a lot of homebrew, Mark decided to go ahead with the idea. And who would’ve thought? Now it’s hindering his chances of finding a job.

“Before I knew it I had this on my face… It was swollen like a bloody pumpkin.”

Mark took to social media this week in the hope of finding a job to provide for his baby daughter.

“Hey I’m keen as to work but have one thing that is stopping me and that’s my tattoo on my face” he wrote on the Auckland job Facebook page.

“Keen as on job or work place that will take me on”

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 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’.

Cropp’s plea for work has been met with praises and suggestions on Facebook, but it is still unknown if that turns to be a full-time job.
