A man says Home Depot fired him for having ISIS tattooed in his mouth.


Kirk Soccorso said that he and his ex-girlfriend, named ISIS, decided to get their names tattooed on each other’s lips.

But when he showed the tattoo to his co-workers, well, they apparently interpreted it a different way and he says that got him fired.

Home Depot has denied the tattoo was the sole reason he was let go.

    Tattooing your partner’s name any where on your body is a dumb idea since many relationships don’t last.

    Also, I doubt that’s the only reason he got fired, since it wasn’t a visible tattoo.

      I think they’re a bad idea for lots of reasons. But yes–tattooing your current lover’s name on your body is definitely one of the dumbest ones.

    ISIS is also an Egyptian goddess.

    Maybe it was for al-Sisi, the current president of Egypt. He has all kinds of friends at Home Depot.

    home depot had it right – it wasn’t the tattoo, it was the missing IQ.

      smiles ;), I’m wondering why he would have it done but WHY go around showing how stupid he is obviously he wasn’t working.

        If he wasn’t bright enough to figure out what could happen…

            You’re in my thoughts. 😉

            Any better???

            My voice isn’t shaky as before but my hands are. I have a doctor’s appointment on the 6th and am still hoping that this is just side effects of the last 2 chemo drugs since my voice doesn’t seem to be as bad. I’m keeping my hopes up! 😉

    If you insist on tattooing someone’s name on your body, why inside your lip? How often do you get a chance to show it off?
