A French man who is heavily tattooed said his passion for ink has cost him his job.
Sylvain Helaine is a 35-year-old school teacher. He’s also a body modification enthusiast. He’s spent over 450 hours getting tattoos that cover his body, face, and tongue. He’s also had the whites of his eyes surgically turned black.
Sylvain is an experienced primary school teacher. He was working as a kindergarten teacher in France last year when he experienced his first career problem related to his appearance. A set of parents complained that his appearance gave their child nightmares. As a result, he was told could no longer teach students under the age of 6.
It saddened Sylvain. He explained that in his experience, students embrace him after getting over the initial shock over his look. He says that little ones are often more accepting than their adult counterparts. When he teaches them about accepting others’ differences, he can only hope they take that home and impress it upon the adults in their lives.
