Face of the day

Today’s face of the day has a new job as a road worker.

Good on him. As his Mum said in a comment on a Facebook post he has proved all the haters wrong.

When?Cropp spoke with the?New Zealand Herald?previously, he said he wanted to get off the, dole, get a job and put food on the table for his family.

“I want to be able to put meat on the table – we want to live a normal life.”

He said he had visited job agencies appealing for work.

“One employment place said to me ‘I wouldn’t employ you with that on you face, I wouldn’t even take a second look at you’. I’ve had other people that just shrugged and laughed at me.”

Cropp found a job last year as a chicken chaser.

His job involved catching chickens on farms and putting them into “modules” before they are taken for slaughter. He worked between 12 and 14 hours a day and was paid $16 an hour for his labour.

Before getting the job as a chicken chaser, Cropp accepted an offer from Sacred Laser in Kingsland to have his DEVAST8 tattoo removed for free.

Herald Focus?went to Cropp’s first laser removal session, where a section of his tattoo was worked on and partly lasered off.

But Cropp’s girlfriend Taneia Ruki confirmed that he would not be having any further laser removal.
