A man whose body, face and tongue are covered in tattoos said he was kept from teaching at a French kindergarten after a parent complained that his appearance frightened their child. It probably didn't help the he's also had the whites of his eyes surgically turned black.
But that isn't all. Slyvian Helaine, 35, still teaches kids 6 years-old and older despite his unusual look. He says the kids and parents that know him don't judge him. "All of my students and their parents were always cool with me because basically they knew me." He says tattooing is his passion and he has spent around 460 hours under the tattooist's needle.
Take a look and see if you'd want this guy teaching your five year-old.
