This is especially the case where the tattoo is visible, and many employers won’t touch you with a six-foot pole.

So, yeah, the word DEVAST8 across your mug isn’t going to play well in the job market.

To be fair, Mark does have an entirely legitimate excuse for his predicament. I mean – who among us hasn’t gotten of their head on homebrew in their prison cell and got a huge facial tattoo?

This would be a good look:

But wait… there’s a (yay!) happy ending:
