A 19-year-old with a tattoo on half his face complains that he cannot find a job. Would you hire him?

A tattoo can be both a decoration and a curse.

The owners of tattooed names of significant others know that even though that person was supposed to be with them forever, they left those sad trails behind. These tattoos thus must be covered later. Inept artists do not necessarily know how to do it. The truth is also understood by those who have tattoos and infections, because they have chosen tattoos inadvertently and went to an unhygienic tattoo shop.

A tattoo usually stays with us for life, so you have to really think hard about the right design. The decision to have a tattoo cannot be made hastily, too young or under the influence of drugs, and certainly not in the case of a combination of all three.

19-year-old Mark Cropp was tattooed in prison, behind prison bars on Christchurch Island in New Zealand. Unfortunately, our main character was not fully aware of what he was doing and decided to etch his face with a huge inscription of “DEVAST8” (literally wiped out, ruined), which was his prison nickname.

As he sat under the needle, he was completely drunk off a prison moonshine. In a similar condition was his tattoo.

When the imprisoned artist finished the inscription, which ran along the jaw of the teenager, the eyes of a young boy appeared on his swollen face half covered with redness and half covered in fresh ink. But the young man was not yet aware of the consequences of this actions.

See what happened later on the next page.
