Meet Jesús Aceves, a 55-year-old man born with a condition called hypertrichosis, which means he has abnormal hair growth over his body, especially his face. Although married with kids, Jesús isn’t fully happy with his living conditions. He says he and his family suffer discrimination. In an interview, one of his kids mentioned, “People call me names, and they even tell their kids not to be my friends.”

He worked in the circus all his life, traveling through several cities. But now, he’s tired of being seen as a freak. As a consequence of years on the road, he’s been known as The Wolf Man.

Back home and not in the circus anymore, he’s facing another challenge: finding a “normal” job. He needs to support his family since his wife works in temporary jobs.

After several failed job interviews, he agreed to try something he had always avoided: shave his face. He relied on his family barber to transform him, even creating eyebrows and lashes.

The experience was difficult since the face is an extremely sensitive body area, but both he and his wife believed that simply by shaving, he would be able to find a job.

Jesús did several interviews, and it’s confident that now he’ll find somewhere to work besides the circus. If this happens, he must shave his face every 2 days.

Although rare, some conditions aren’t impossible to have. Luckily, people find a way to overcome the difficulties a rare condition brings and strive in life. Hannah Tyre, for example, was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, meaning that her bones break very easily. But her love for makeup made her an internet influencer, reaching millions of followers. We hope that, by reaching the mainstream media, people with genetic diseases won’t suffer more discrimination.

Dad With 240 Tattoos Faces Backlash As People Think He Is A Horrible Father – Then His Wife Reveals The Truth

Don’t judge a book by its cover is an old saying, but it never hurts to be reminded of it.

If a parent does not fit the usual mold of a parent, judging them simply on their appearance might be very unjust.

The tattoos on his face led others to accuse him of being a horrible father. His wife then revealed some unexpected information, which shocked everyone. Read on to find out more…

One of the pillars of individuality is self-expression. Since they allow people to express themselves visually, tattoos are a fantastic way of self-expression.

Richard Huff, 51, has over 240 tattoos on his body and utilizes them as a means of self-expression.

The ink junkie is raising five kids with his wife. To the dismay of the internet at large, his wife routinely posts on social media with him and his kids in it.

The 51-year-old Huff wants people to know that his family is “no different” from any other. But he has admitted that complete strangers regularly ridicule him online because of his appearance.

He described his beginnings. “It became an addiction, I started with my legs and worked my way up,” Huff said.

He said that 85 percent of his body was now covered in tattoos. Among his tattoos are the lips of his daughter and their names.

“I want to be 100% covered in tattoos probably within the next four years,” shared Richard. “I don’t know if it’s the pain or the artwork that you put on you, but it just becomes fascinating when you’re able to do this.”

He claimed that having so many tattoos had its own difficulties. He admitted that the kids at his kids’ school thought he was scary.

In her own words, his daughter has said, “They say, ’ah it’s a bit scary’ and I say ’no, my dad is not scary, he is good with tattoos.’”

Marita, Richard’s wife, admitted that she, too, was terrified of him. She admitted, “I did judge Richard based on his looks at first but as I got to know him a little bit, he is actually a big-hearted person.”

She frequently writes in her blog posts about how much her husband adores her. She continuously praises his qualities, calling him a devoted husband and loving father.

Marita has revealed to others that Richard is much more than a true father to his three children from previous marriages.

Richard said when questioned about his neighbourhood participation, “I participate in the PTA, I go to all my kids’ functions.”

Despite the fact that his kindness is well known, many still criticise him. One user commented on his facial tattoos and said, “I’m not against tattoos, but I mean honestly, does he really need tattoos on his face like that?”

However, Richard is not the only one who has supporters. “Everyone keeps talking about his face tattoo. He likes it. He got it. He’s a good father. Let him be.”

Richard responded to the critique by saying, “If somebody can make negative comments like that, there’s something wrong with them themselves that they would have to judge somebody else.” Adding, “This is what we did and we’re happy. We’ve been together six years our kids are happy and to us, that’s all that matters.”

Richard goes on to remark that no matter how much his family despises him or how much he despises them, he still loves them.. “Having tattoos does not scare my children, it does not make me a bad father, it makes my kids get a different perspective on life,” he said.

Some people find it hard to believe this is the same person after seeing him without all the tattoos!

Richard Huff appears to be a nice husband and father who is greatly loved by his family.
