I bet the Chinese could find a tattooed man/corpse for sale much quicker and faster than waiting till the end of leopard mans life. Isn't that a place where kids/people - go missing due to the huge black-market trade in things like kidneys/cornea's?

Urghhh, eyes in jars are for the likes of Gosnell and Dahmer.

I notice it is "collection in person, " from Blackpool....bit far for me, will ask if they do liver. ...sorry, meant deliver.

If you’re planning to redecorate your house in time for summer then you may want to consider buying a human skin rug for your living room.Well, at least that's what tattoo fanatic Artur Mrozowski seems to think will be going through shoppers' minds.

The 41-year-old has 90 per cent of his body covered in jaguar print and is now selling his 'leather' on eBay.

I'm willing to bet this "sale" will have legal issues - as he cannot claim 'ownership' of his skin after his own death to sell it. His descendents/immediate relatives will have 'ownership'.

Well that kinda grosses me out. I have heard stories of people having their tattooed skin be kept by family as a way to remember them. It was a tradition in some Asian country (maybe japan?) I think. They were warriors who had the tattoos and it was some kind of honorable thing. Wish I could remember more of the details...

Great....

"You have been left no money, but you are left the skin, you will have to decide if you would like it to remain on ebay or change the listing to "ended".
