A teen dad who's face is splashed with 'DEVAST8' after a drunken night behind bars says he's 'waiting for the right job offer' after launching a desperate plea for work.
Kiwi guy Mark Cropp's plea went viral last week, after he revealed he'd been turned down from several job interviews since walking free from jail.. all because of his poor choice of tatt.
The 19 year old's now revealed he 'stopped counting' at 45 job offers, but has turned down every one of them.
He has clarified that some of the jobs required him to have his own car, which he doesn't.
Meantime, he has accepted an offer to have the ink removed via laser treatment.
'I am just working out a date to get it taken off - which sucks because it is going to hurt,' he said.
'And because, you know, this tattoo means something to me and my brother did it for me so it is hard to make the decision to get rid of it.
'But I know it is the best thing for my future - and I want to be a person my family can look to for support.'
