Stupid person can't get a job due to tattoo

Recommended Posts

It's a seriously stupid thing to have done. Why not on his back or chest where he can cover it up?

my cousin is tattooed from head to foot. Literally. Lucky for him, he is self employed as the local tattoo artist. He would never get a job otherwise. Even though he is a very nice bloke.

I was on a holiday with an ex and there was this guy who was the same, including tattoos on his bald or shaved head.  He stood out like a sore thumb and was basically avoided; I don't think people were scared of him because he wasn't big and muscled, just didn't like the look of him.

As it happened we ended up sat next to them at a table in the bar one night and had a fun evening playing cards; the guy was quiet, soft spoken, and perfectly nice.

Which left me even more baffled as to why he would turn himself into a circus freakshow that people routinely avoided.  The people avoiding him were just reacting normally to someone who looked like a loon; appearances do matter as that is all most people have on which to assess you.

Yep, sounds just like my cousin. My personal take on my cousin was that a hard upbringing by a single alcoholic mother might have had something to do with it

What a chod.

That said, the tattoo artist wants to have a word with himself, prominently tattooing a very young guy with shite like that.

Ultimately, the decision was matey boys and he'll have to suck it up unless he spends a painful fortune on removal. Might be his best option though, I wouldn't hire him and I'm not exactly Alan Sugar.

Sounds like a perfect way for people to not talk to you if you're somewhat of an introvert

He can't get a job because he lacks wisdom, and the tattoo is merely a very obvious indicator of that.  I wouldn't call him stupid, as I believe being stupid is the inability to learn, and I think he's probably  learned what a mistake it was.

What he lacks is the ability to consider his actions and the possible consequences of them.  What will be the next unwise thing he does?

Who in their right mind would employ someone like that when there are so many other people to choose from with enough wisdom NOT to get a huge tattoo on their necks?

Having watched the video I'm not entirely sure he has learned what a mistake it was.

On the other hand, I do wonder if he has a bit of a point - when policemen are now allowed visible arm tattoos, it perhaps sends a signal that the government think that they are perfectly acceptable. Add to that the fact that a significant proportion of kids his age also have visible ones, and I can start to see why he might feel that he was being discriminated against, even though I can totally see why people don't want to give him a job.

Perhaps he could carve out a niche career modelling scarves

Very good point.

Someone with a big neck tattoo shows ill judgement.... no use moaning about it after the event.

Looks like a rather expensive trip to the tattoo removal chair!

Some of the comments on the original article were quite amusing, along the lines of 'grow a bead, be a hipster'

Not above the collar or below the cuff.

Mates dad was seaside tatooust. Those were his unbreakable rules.

Apply for Big Brother.  It encourages a lot of the "be yourself" stuff .  It does sound discriminatory but I don't think there's any affirmative action in favour of people with tattoos.
