  • Mark Cropp has revealed how his face looked before he had the'DEVAST8 tattoo

A TEEN dad with "DEVAST8" tattooed across half his face has decided not to remove his tattoo after all because he's "too busy with his new scaffolding job".

Mark Cropp, 19, made worldwide headlines last month after speaking out on social media about his difficulty finding a job.

But he has decided not to get rid of it.

Cropp's brother tattooed his face in jail during a night of heavy drinking.

"Once it was started, I thought, I can't go back on it now", Cropp told the Herald.

"Im keen as to work but have one thing that is stoping me and thats my tattoo on my face, [sic]" he said on Facebook in July after his release, prompting dozens of job offers and an offer for free laser tattoo removal by Auckland company Sacred Laser. Cropp was serving a two-year sentence for pulling a knife on a tourist after trying to sell them fake cannabis.

After initially saying he had hoped to keep the ink and for a potential employer to look past it, he changed his mind, and accepted an offer from a tattoo removal company to have it lasered for free.

However, on Thursday, when asked about his progress, Sacred Laser said Cropp had rejected their offer and wouldn't be having further sessions.

The parlour expressed disappointment, but said their offer to remove it for free still stood if Cropp were to change his mind.

Cropp has not responded to calls from Herald Focus today.

"We've all made bad choices, doesn't mean we are bad people", Herbert told the New Zealand Herald.

Speaking about the tattoo, Mark said: "It was only supposed to be a little tattoo down the side of my jaw but I got intoxicated".

He was jailed as a 17-year-old for aggravated robbery, claiming he needed money to support his pregnant girlfriend.

"I was quite angry at myself because".
