Tatt's not fair! Man with inking on face says it's sad nobody will give him a job

Tatt's not fair! Man with inking on face says it's sad nobody will give him a job

 

 

 

Yusuf Kashif Hameed with facial tattoos
Ink about it ... Yusuf wishes he'd never had his tattoos done

But the 40-year-old from Batley, West Yorks, says the feedback is always the same — employers are turned off by his body art.

As well as the Buddhist symbol on his face, Yusuf has two Thai boxing designs and a yin yang symbol on the back of his head.

But he believes potential bosses should be more open-minded about his inkings.

Yusuf said: “It is really getting me down and it is so hard to think that these tattoos are such a strong barrier against me getting a job.

“I’ve been doing everything the job centre has told me and attended all my interviews but they take one look at my tattoos and won’t give me a chance.

“I can just see the person opposite me lose eye contact and focus on my tattoos.

Tattoo man can't get a job
Tatt's a shame ... Yusuf says his head tattoos put off employers

“I’m more than qualified for a lot of the jobs I have been for but they all tell me my tattoos do not fit the company image."

Yusuf got his first tattoo at the age of 14, but says he now wishes he had never had them done.

He added: “I used to hang around with a lot of lads older than me and they started getting them.

“I suppose it was peer pressure, but as a mature person I would not have got them, especially seeing the reaction from strangers."

However, Yusuf remains hopeful that an employer will eventually look past his body art and give him an opportunity.

He said: “People generalise and think I am not bothered about working and that I am a freeloader.

“I want employers to judge me on my skills and they will find out I’ve got lots to offer.

“Even if it is a week's trial, I just need that chance.”

Spot of bother ... Yusuf has a Buddhist symbol on his forehead

YO Yusuf....it's less the tattoos themselves than the placement of them coupled with your particular face which screams "Lunatic psychopath" to people.

Haven't thought of makeup to cover any of it, eh?

Somebody dumb enough to do this to themselves has lots of others problems that I suspect are why he is a turnoff. It ain’t the ink.

I am thankfully married to a beautiful woman and therefore don’t even have to think about the dating scene. Sorry, but a tat on a woman tells me all I want to know...and those things just aren’t pleasant.

As far as hiring a tat dude or dudette....fegettedabowdit!

Tattoos have always had a stigma attached to them. In Christian circles, tattooing is seen as mutilation. While it’s become socially acceptable to have tattoos and much more visible ones at that, it is NOT acceptable in most social nor in any Christian or professional circles to have visible tattoos from the neck up.

I know some guys who have tattoos on their neck and some on his head that are covered by hair, but ANY tattoos on the face will never be acceptable in the western world.

Poor Yusuf. He’s a mentally disturbed tattoo parlor simpleton who needs to find a tattoo eradicator, but first he’s going to have to find out what happened to his life.

Dumb decisions=dumb results. Then you blame everybody else. And, if you really want a tat on your forehead, at least get a real shop to do it for you. (Ever wonder how these down and out folks can afford all the tats they want plus multiple piercings? The real stuff ain’t cheap. Gotta love them HUGE holes in the earlobe. Guess the want to be individuals and not like everybody else. Not really working there is it sport.)

Tattoo - The Who

Me and my brother were talking to each other
‘Bout what makes a man a man
Was it brain or brawn, or the month you were born,
We just couldn’t understand

Our old man didn’t like our appearance
He said that only women wear long hair

So me and my brother borrowed money from Mother
We knew what we had to do
We went downstairs, past the barber and gymnasium
And got our arms tattooed

Welcome to my life, tattoo
I’m a man now, thanks to you
I expect I’ll regret you
But the skin graft man won’t get you
You’ll be there when I die
Tattoo

My dad beat me ‘cause mine said “Mother”
But my mother naturally liked it and beat my brother
‘Cause his tattoo was of a lady in the nude
And my mother thought that was extremely rude

Welcome to my life, tattoo
We’ve a long time together, me and you
I expect I’ll regret you
But the skin graft man won’t get you
You’ll be there when I die
Tattoo

Now I’m older, I’m tattooed all over
My wife is tattooed too
A rooty-toot-toot, A rooty-tooty-toot-toot
Rooty-toot-toot tattoo too
To you

Personally, I find the pseudo-Amish beard and the crazed axe-murderer eyes far more disconcerting than the ink.

But that’s just me.

I've told this story here before, so forgive me if you've heard it.

I was in line behind a face tatted, fully pierced, straggly young man at Target. Apparently my disgust wasn't well hidden and he decided to confront me with, “You shouldn't judge people by the way they look.”

That was just too ironic for me, so I gave him a reply he wasn't expecting, “I don't judge people by the way God made them, but God's not responsible for the way you look. You've spent a considerable amount of time and money precisely to be judged by the way you look. You're just unhappy with the judgment.”

I have a cousin whose daughter is covered head to toe in tats, except the face. She was a gorgeous gal and now all anyone sees are the tats.

Yep. Grow hair on the head to cover up some of the tattoos, and shave the beard or grow a more typical beard, and he won’t have a problem. He wants his tats and a job too - not likely.

Of course I wouldn’t hire a guy named “Yusuf” neither.

For a Buddhist, that’s an awfully Islamic name.

1. Doing permanent stupid crap when you are young can affect you negatively when you’re older. It pays to think first before doing stupid sh1t that is very hard and expensive to undo.

2. He looks way older than 40. That is either hard living partying or really bad genetics.

3. If this is the best the media can come up with to get us off the massive Obama scandals, it’s pretty sad.

I always tell my kids I LOVE face tatoos and big nose and face piercings!

Because it would be much harder to get the stupid people to stamp a big red ‘S’ on their forehead.

Cry me a river, Tatt-Man! Perhaps a tattoo parlor will hire you. I agree with one other poster, anyone sick enough to mark his face up that way has some not-so-savory things happening inside his head.

Has he tried applying at the IRS? Give the dude a gold badge and send him around to conservative groups to check compliance. He’d fit right in with Barry’s army.

We had a bartender at our American Legion who had humungous ta-ta’s. She was 50+ years old and fat. One hot summer day I walked in, ordered a Miller Lite and immediately got in a conversation with a guy to my left. The bartender apparently waited for a while for my money and leaned over the bar and said”You gonna pay for that?” I looked at her breast’s’ss’s while I got my wallet out and asked ‘What is that on your tit?” She said”It’s a butterfly!” I gave her my money and said “Looks like an eagle to me.” I didn’t get another beer.

My Niece’s daughter Just got out of the Air Force after 10 years. Filled with tattoo’s and queer as a $3.00 dollar bill. Pretty girl but nasty as cat feces.

Our military aint what it used to be.

Went to a wedding the other day a couple of the bridesmaids had dresses cut way down in back and backs filled with tattoos. Made me want to gag.

Take a beautiful body and screw it up with a cartoon.

They call this art? I guess it is if you call a drawing you color by numbers art. 99% of it is just that. A cartoon filled in by fill in the numbers colors. Colors that will one day just be a blue blotch.

Some of these girls have tattoos in places I would gladly fill in the numbers for them for free. I guess they forget that the tattoo guy likes holding their Boobs or privates while painting them.

says he now wishes he had never had them done

Simple enough to have the forehead one removed, grow hair on your head to cover that one and wear long sleeves to the interview. Either shave that weirdo looking beard or grow it out more natural rather than the freak style you've got going. Stupid on the outside is a huge indicator to prospective employers to stupid on the inside.
