BRITAIN’s most tattooed guy has revealed a previous supervisor hid him from firm bosses due to his dramatic overall look.
Matthew Whelen, who also goes by King Physique Artwork, has various tattoos covering 90 per cent of his overall body.
The 42-year-old was working at a call centre when he claims he was concealed away from administration in an obvious ‘office reshuffle’.
He informed The Everyday Star: “I got shuffled all over from 1 office to one more when I was performing in a phone centre.”
Matthew reported he was confident the “final constraints” were positioned on him thanks to his greatly-inked visual appeal.
“The managers have been coming up so they made the decision to have a go all over in the place of work. The person they obtained to go was me,” he explained.
“I received shifted from one particular conclusion of the business office down to the base when the administrators came up.”
Nevertheless, office woes aren’t the only time Matthew explained he has confronted discrimination because of to his different decisions.
He previously stated HSBC would not allow him open up a bank account since of his new name.
Matthew statements the financial institution would not make it possible for him to change providers to theirs simply because the identify on his bills does not match his passport.
He previously improved his identify to King Of Inkland King Body Artwork The Severe Ink-ite in 2008.
“I’ve had a few issues along the way because it really is quite one of a kind, pretty whacky but it is my legal name,” Matthew claimed.
“I am trying to swap to HSBC from TSB and they’ve rejected me. They are discriminating versus me mainly because of my id.
“I’ve obtained a financial institution – I am just unsatisfied with them. Anybody else if they are unsatisfied with their bank’s provider they can very easily change.”
In 2013, he was also refused a passport after officials claiming his abnormal identify would not healthy their policies.
On the other hand, he effectively challenged the Authorities and got a passport in 2014.
Matthew claimed he grew to become fascinated by body artwork when he was 9 yrs outdated and had his first inking aged 16.
