Well, There’s A Surprise

Would you give this twat a job?

A young man with a tattoo on his face reading ‘DEVAST8’ has said he is having difficulty finding work after being released from prison.

Mark Cropp, from New Zealand, had been inebriated when his cell mate – who is also his brother – gave him the tattoo, while he was completing a two-year sentence in prison for an aggravated robbery charge.

The tattoo was supposed to be small and go along his jawline, but after the pair drank an improvised alcoholic beverage made from fermented apples, sugar and bread, the mark turned out to be significantly larger.

That’ll be a “no” then.


  1. Looks more like a real tattoo than a gaol cell DIY tattoo.

    One above eyebrow may be a gaol cell DIY tattoo.

    Regardless, he looks vacant – night soil collector would be suitable employment in a country with vacancies.

  2. He’s the absolute personification of one of my original lines – “Tattoos: self-abuse which lasts a lifetime.

  3. There’s a long list of people I wouldn’t employ. Being a brexit voter would be the highest on the list, being an economic illiterate of the first order. Facial tattoos would be another. Anyone who watches Top Gear………
