Tattooed teacher teaches tolerance
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.
From UNM teacher uses ink in expression… “‘I have had very few negative reactions,’ he said. ‘People have been amazingly supportive.’ Potts said he hasn’t had trouble getting a job, because success is all about how one presents him or herself and doesn’t solely depend on appearance.”

“Whoa! He reminds me of Mr. Christianson, my highschool english teacher! He was covered in Star Wars and mythology tattoos and would talk to you about everything, from comic books, to politics and social economics.”
“I think the coolest part is people that will label him a freak or whatever and jump to conclusions about him would never guess he was a teacher.”
“i just love how genuinely happy he looks.”
