French Teacher Who Covered His Body In Tattoos Banned From School (Graphic Pix) by jumia1: 1:36am On Sep 29
French primary school teacher who spent $45,000 covering his body in tattoos and turning the whites of his eyes black is banned from kindergarten because he gives children nightmares

*Sylvain Helaine was teaching at Docteur Morere Elementary School in Palaiseau
*Parents of a three-year-old complained he had given the child nightmares
*It was ruled that Helaine, 35, could now only teach children over the age of six


A schoolteacher, whose body is covered in tattoos and who has had the whites of his eyes surgically turned black, said he was prevented from teaching at a French kindergarten after a parent complained he scared their child.

Sylvain Helaine was teaching at the Docteur Morere Elementary School in Palaiseau, a suburb of Paris, last year when the parents of a three-year-old complained to educational authorities.

They said their son, who was not taught by Helaine, had nightmares after seeing him.

It was ruled that the 35-year-old, who is considered to be France's most tattooed man, could continue teaching but only for children over the age of six.

Helaine, who was born in Paris, got his first ink when he was 27 and has since spent over £35,000 and around 460 hours under the tattooists' needle.

He said that in the months following the complaint the school authorities informed him he would no longer teach kindergarten children.

I think the decision they took was quite sad,' said Helaine, before claiming that pupils can see past his appearance after the initial shock.

'All of my students and their parents were always cool with me because basically they knew me,' he added.

'It's only when people see me from far away that they can assume the worst.'

A spokesman for the local education authority said an agreement was reached with Helaine to move him away from teaching kindergarten.

Pupils under six 'could be frightened by his appearance', the spokesman said.

Helaine said he would stick with his chosen career despite the setbacks. 'I'm a primary school teacher... I love my job.'

He said he started getting tattoos when, while teaching at a private school in London, he had an 'existential crisis'.

Since then, he said that getting tattoos had become a passion.

Helaine, whose alias is Freaky Hoody, said he hoped to show his pupils that they should accept people who are different from the norm.

Best believe, he has sympathizers who will take to the streets soonest, to protest his sack, and seek for total inclusiveness in the system — LGTB started thus.

Saw this yesterday and I found myself asking what has become of the noble profession.

It seems it is no longer what it used to be. Sad.

This fellow should never be allowed anywhere near a classroom. His antics show that he is clearly not sound of mind. Or what more proof does the school authority need to convince them any further on that?

Next time he should teach high school students instead. The tattoos are his armour against the world. The guy must have esteem issues.
