He didnt get fired he just teaches slightly older kids now. And I take expection at your grammar

He looks more like a circus freak than a teacher, anyway.

i am so smrt

It's his eyes that are terrifying. If he wore sunglasses, that would be ok. Otherwise, it's a nope from me.
 
2020-09-28 10:08:41 AM  
He said he hoped to show his pupils that they should accept people who are different from the norm.

His what?

Yes. I noticed that, too. It's all I could think about. Those eyes. Yuck.

I know, right? I mean, what kind of sick freak wants to teach kindergarteners?
 
2020-09-28 10:16:35 AM  
I hope he's not teaching how to make good life choices.

Never get face tattoos. Just don't. Ever. No matter what.
 
2020-09-28 10:18:18 AM  
In a stage of childhood development that is five and under, no I wouldn't advise him to teach. Because of what he did to his eyes, not the tattoos. Children are still learning cues from eyes and that would hinder their development.
 
2020-09-28 10:19:32 AM  
Anyone who would strike such a pose should not be allowed around children
 
2020-09-28 10:20:50 AM  
Maybe attention whoring isn't a vital lesson for children that age.
 
2020-09-28 10:20:56 AM  
Yeah I'm no early childhood development specialist, but I think that giving 5-year olds bed-wetting nightmare fuel may be detrimental to their development.  If I met the guy at Burning Man, I'd want to party with him, but teaching 5-year olds really shouldn't be his "thing"
 
2020-09-28 10:21:56 AM  
Parents complain he frightens children.

He admits he frightens children but thinks they they should get over it.

Dude, go teach edgy high school kids, they'll f**king love you.
 
2020-09-28 10:27:42 AM  
Tattoos are below the first layer of skin so technically it is inside you.
 
2020-09-28 10:28:04 AM  
Why not devote your life to tutoring carnival freaks, create your own act, make some cash on the side, get the attention and horrified reactions you crave. Boom.

I'm a problem solver.
 
2020-09-28 10:30:41 AM  
I will say those are some of the nicest face tattoos I've ever seen.

However I totally agree with Kirablue42 that the scleral tattoos make him a poor fit for teaching young children, the silly billy.

His scary eyes distract me from the face tattoos. And, I'm not looking again. I keep getting drawn to the eyes.
 
2020-09-28 10:36:28 AM  
I don't get how he got hired in the first place to teach a kindergarten class.  Surely their standards of appearance for teachers are the same as those for students.
 
2020-09-28 10:36:56 AM  
He should start his own school for kids that also freaks.

Sorry. Pet peeve.
 
2020-09-28 10:41:32 AM  
He's obviously not an English teacher because everyone knows a face tattoo says "Save me a spot in jail" not "I should work around small children".

I think this is a variation on Dave Chappelle's observation.

Pre-farking-cisely.

May be the best teacher in the world, but you've packaged yourself in a box labeled "rancid bongwater and used heroin needles" and I don't want that packaging near my kids.
 
2020-09-28 11:02:29 AM  
I'm heavily tattooed and have smaller, non-freak size gauges (everything is covered by long sleeves and pants except for a small finger tattoo because I'm in a very white collar job where appearance and professionalism matters). I'm all for individuality but this dude has went way overboard. I understand how he would scare a bunch of young kids. General rule of thumb, if you look like a freak expect to be treated like one.

2020-09-28 11:32:38 AM  
He started when he was 27? Twenty-seven. 9 times 3. Seems like he joined the party about ten years late. Usually by the time you hit your late 20s you're debating yourself on what you're about to do. Shoot, usually by your senior year in high school that starts to happen. Second thoughts have kept me out of numerous hospitals and completely tattoo-free, except for the time that one guy stabbed me in the thumb with a pencil and made a squiggle underneath my skin. You can still see it if you know where to look.

But that was an accident, I'm pretty sure - certainly not voluntary. It wasn't my freakin eye, either.

Holy s*** that would freak me the fark out. Can't imagine what it would do to a kid.

I wonder what percentage of the population has a piece of pencil graphite or ink from a pen permanently stuck under their skin, deposited from some childhood accident or quarrel. I have two--one mark on my palm from a pencil, and a little dot of ink where I accidentally stabbed myself.

I'm betting its actually a rare person who doesn't have something like that. Or maybe I was just a very klutzy kid.

That, more than the tattoos themselves, leads me to believe he is unqualified to mold young minds.

Wrong. I agree with the face/head part but forearms? They can be covered by long sleeves. I have a full sleeve and have had no problems gaining employment in my field (legal). My experience has been that as long as you present yourself as a professional, don't have anything distasteful tattooed on a visible body part that can't be covered, or look like a freak, you're probably okay. 20 years ago that would not have been the case, but times have changed.

Yup. He could teach high school. Other than some raised eyebrows the first time he walks in the highschoolers aren't generally going to have nightmares from him.

Exactly.  I've made some doozies in my life but at 66 I am tattoo free.

Although now that my skin is a little saggy/creepy a tatt wouldn't probably look too bad now...specially script.  Right?  lol

That's kinda where I'm at on this call.  If you have live spiders all over you, that's also a problem for teaching Kindergarten.  Even if they won't bite and never leave your skin.  It's distracting from what you're actually supposed to be doing there.

Surprise surprise, the FARK anti-tattoo brigade is out in force.

If I had kids, I wouldn't mind this guy teaching them (all else being equal). They'd learn to not judge a book by its cover, at the very least.

Then again I have extensive and visible branding, stretched ears, etc, and worked in the industry for a decade.

Now I own an architecture firm and guess what? Nobody I care about, cares about any of it. You only get one life, and I'm glad to see diversity of expression. Why the fark not? It's not like you're being forced to do it.

serious question- does a brand hold the shape you chose?  because i was told it would 'smear' over time.  not shopping, so much as i just think it's interesting that there are body mods for people who don't want to introduce any permanent foreign elements to the ol' carc.

Heh.
 
2020-09-28 4:05:17 PM  
No, thank you. I wouldn't want to deal with him at a parent-teacher conference, given his life choices are questionable (the *eyes*?)

But then, I was at Worldcon in '96, and there were some women who had a table in the dealers' room. They had some nice t-shirst, from what I could see... but the two of them had so many facial piercings that I couldn't deal with it. My problem... but they may have lost a sale or two.

slantsix: Surprise surprise, the FARK anti-tattoo brigade is out in force.


Most of the comments in this thread aren't anti-tattoo, per se. Nobody's saying this guy doesn't have the right to express himself... but many (myself included) seem to be in the camp of "express yourself, but don't be surprised if it has ramifications."

Would I be the parent to complain to the school about this guy's appearance? Probably not. But my preference would be a teacher who was equally qualified (and equally liked by students) without the need to express themselves in this manner (for me, personally, it's really the eyes that are the problem).

Generally speaking, one's workplace is not a place for personal expressions/statements. And if one's personal expression gets in the way of doing their job, they need to either find a different venue for expressing themselves or they need to find a more appropriate job. Since he can't really do the former, it only leaves the latter.

As others have mentioned, the dialog about this guy's situation could be very different if he was a high school teacher rather than an elementary teacher, as his personal expression could very well be accepted or even respected by older students.

I never minded the whole 'freak out the norms,' thing.  But when it becomes your entire point of existence, and then a few years later you realize you want to do something else ... it really gets in the way, if you did something permanent.

Actually it can be an occupation; I have a friend who is a professional freak (heavily tattooed and multiple other body mods). He performs at carnivals and fairs, hosts burlesque shows and fetish nights and promotes concerts. He's a nice guy who works hard and helps his friends out when they need it.

It's certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but it works for him.
