Most people prefer their art on their walls not as a permanent fixture of their bodies. But Eli Ink, a 27-year-old tattoo artist from Brighton, England, sees his body as a walking exhibition of his finest work.
He has spent the last ten years transforming himself. Tattooing most of his skin black with several coats of ink, dying his eyes and implanting stretchers in his nose and under his bottom lip. The process is far from finished, but the result is striking
Maybe he and Rachel Dolezal should get together.
Paging Dr. Freud...
Yep, mentally ill. Suicide in 4, 3, 2,...
And he is already wondering why he can’t get a loan...
I guess that was the only way to get a white girlfriend.
It’s my fault for looking but I have a gag-reflex reaction to these kinds of things. I do understand the personal expression / nature of art. It doesn’t mean it’s my cup-of-tea. Ugh.
That is one sick puppy.
Self-mutilation is a serious issue.
We just have to worry about an occasional gnat going up the nose... that dummy has to worry about cicadas
He looks like a Ubangi. That’s not a compliment.
Could have saved himself a lot of ink by just tattooing “I’m a moron” on his forehead.
That freak is a freak.
I agree with you. But, to him, it's a feature, not a bug.
He has the nose of a Cebus apella monkey and the eyes of a chimp. Mom must be proud.
[[You can easily see his obsession with the abstract on his own body. It’s a philosophy that guides the choices he makes.]]
Mental illness is now a ‘philosophy’?
As if the entire inked skin wasn’t enough, now he has what appears to be a ‘Soap holder disk’ lodged into his bottom lip. How does he talk or eat with that soap dish in there?
Some unkind person might even say it looks like the sanitizer disc found in Men’s Rooms.
Something, something must have rocked his world as a young person to sink this far into that inky black abyss.
Just as with people who keep getting more plastic surgery, his tattoos are never quite ‘enough’ to make him feel happy.
