Goth with chains and green hair gets makeover – before turning down job offer

An unemployed goth who moaned about not being able to find work has turned down a job offer.

Novak Daniels has applied for roles as a waiter, lawn mower, welder and boiler maker.

The 18-year-old, from Queensland in Australia, was offered a job in regional Victoria.

However, A Current affair host Tracy Grimshaw said he is “hoping for something a little closer to home”.

On the programme, Mr Daniels got rid of his chains, green hair and black make-up.

He said: “People stare at me, look at me as if I'm going to hurt them… I'm not going to hurt anyone.

“People say they don't want me in front of customers. Some days it can be like everyone's against me. It's crazy.”

Mr Daniels told Daily Mail Australia he is a “good employee” with a top CV.

He added: “I do have work experience and qualifications and certificates, I am a hard worker, my references say good things – it's simply because there's a picture there and I look a bit different.”

Mr Daniels’ work experience includes an office job and three months in his dad’s cafe as a barista.

While the teen dropped out of high school two years ago, he claims the Centrelink job agency said he is the best applicant they have.

Mr Daniels' dad Murray Ball also said he is “very proud” of his son and told employers to “give ‘em a go”.

Last month, a tattoo fanatic said he had been prevented from teaching young children terrified of his inkings.

Sylvain Helaine taught kindergarteners at the Docteur Morere Elementary School in Palaiseau, a suburb of Paris, until the mum of one pupil complained to his boss that Sylvain’s tattoos were “scaring” her three-year-old.

Sylvain, who even has tattoos on his tongue, says that while they might be shocked by his extreme body modification at first, most kids learn to “see past” his appearance.

“All of my students and their parents were always cool with me because basically, they knew me,” he said.

He added: “It’s only when people see me from far away that they can assume the worst.”

Sylvain told Reuters that after the parents of one very small child complained about his unusual appearance, he was told he could no longer teach the youngest age groups, because his extensive tattooing and surgically blackened eyeballs could frighten them.

However, he still teaches kids from the age of six up.
