Melissa Sloan, the mother of two, recently hit the headlines as she was banned from her children’s school. As her two daughters were taking part in the Christmas play of their school, Sloan was rejected from entering to the school, due to her tattooed looks.
As she explained, this is not the first time that a location is rejecting her entry, as she was banned from the local bars. Sloan stated that people have prejudice against her, just because she is obsessed with tattoos.
And the worst part of the outcome of her obsession is that she can’t find any job, and she is suffering from unemployement. She once was cleaning toilets, but she currently has no job.
As she is stressed from unemployement, Sloan stated, “I can’t get a job. They won’t have me. The first job I had was cleaning ages ago, cleaning toilets. People have said I have never have had a job in my life, I have had one once and it didn’t last long.”
Sloan currently receiving support from her unemployement benefits and she is taking care of her family with that. She wants to work, but no one hires her due to her look.
Sloan has more than 800 tattoos on her, and also on her face. Sloan said, “I applied for a job cleaning toilets where I live and they won’t have me because of my tattoos.”
And as she explained she gets a new tattoo every once in a week. And she is having problem with the local tattoo artists, as they started to reject her.
Her partner, Luke is giving her new tattoos, in their home. Sloan had said, “They won’t do it because I’m beyond help – because I’ve gone too far.”
She had received many comments online, as many people stated that she is gone too far with her obsession.
An online user had commented, “Actions have consequences. Of course you won’t get hired with all these tattoos. You should open your own [tattoo] shop or work for one to advertise your art on your face. But you can’t expect everyone to accept it.”
“This is why they make at home call center jobs. She needs to accept a career that won’t scare someone off at first glance.”
“Feel sorry for her kids…she seems very concerned with her ink and not on how this impacts them.”
“Poor decisions have consequences.”
“Well it was your decision don’t expect other people to bend themselves for you ….”
Were some other comments.
For the comments, Sloan had stated, “I’m addicted to tattoos, I get three a week and I’ll never stop – if I make it to 70 I’ll still be getting them.”
