Ambitwistor: There is no working in the red zone.

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.

Magorn: 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"


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

crozzo: 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.

Yea, I'd fire him. I want the kids to focus on everything except him. He wants the opposite.

This is Fark -- that Cracked.jpg, butthole girl, "my name is Kelly", Mr. Cool Ice and No Ragrets  are trotted out in every tattoo thread as an easy way to score some smart/funnies.

Leave my Gramma outta this! She never taught in France, she was still getting her degree with financial help  from strangers.

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.

Sometimes the cautionary tales are the best lessons.

Because "circus freak" is an occupation?
It's kinda like calling someone "junior account execution."

Never mind kids under 6 being frightened.  I'm 47 and that dude's eyes weird me out.

That's quite the Freudian slip you've got going there. Typos are sometimes so telling ...

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.

his pupils see past his appearance.

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.

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.

Could be worse. Your kindergarten teacher could be in Gorgoroth.
