Tattooed Freak?

This guy brings a whole new meaning to the term "tattooed freak." Believe it or not, this guy teaches college. Meet Mr. Potts:



What do you think about this? (No it is not a joke -- it's real). Do you think tattoos detract from professional appearance? Not just blatant ones like this guy, what about tattoos on peoples' arms or hands? Just wondering...

I guess you would get used to him after a while. I wonder if he's married.

I don't know if he's married or not, but I do know:

Bruce Potts is a teacher of Public Speaking at the University of New Mexico and has a full tribal face tattoo. He has a straight forward attitude and imparts a cool vibe of acceptance. We’ll bet his students get an extra edge on using demeanor and attitude in public speaking. And a life long lesson on not judging books by their covers. Either that or they study really hard because they’re afraid he’ll eat them.

Wow, what a great photo. I have no desire to have a tattoo, especially on my face. But, I sure don't mind if he has all these physical logos provided he doesn't get an attitude when people stare.

I find it funny when people choose to do things that are out of the norm, like this guy, and then get an attitude when people notice. Wasn't that the point? Didn't they want attention for being different?

Great point, Steve. I'm sure this guy doesn't mind, since he does public speaking about it and such. But I feel what you mean when it comes to tattooed, pierced, crazy looking hair folks who wonder why we stare... That IS the point!
