Man tattoos his entire body black...

Black Monk

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.

Apparently, it depends on the ingredients in the ink.

It's blue black, It's iron.

Well that's like saying that transsexual people are mentally ill.

No, it's not the same thing at all.

To each his own. To me, that's crazy AF.

But if the dude is happy, who am I to really judge?

He pays his bills and taxes, does what he love in life.

While it wouldn't be my first choice to do such a thing, if he's happy then so be it.

That's the thing isn't it ?

It seems to me that he's actually 'unhappy' over something ... to resort to such needs to be happy ... very very unhappy

He won't regret that.  No way.  Good decision.  Hooray freedom of expression.

Ill?  Not necessarily.  Aberrant?  Absolutely.

I'm thinking he wanted that Pepe the frog, in Blackface, vibe   :w00t:

Speaking as a former MRI tech of about 15 years, I wouldn't put him in a scanner on a BET!  Dude would be jittering and jiving like a speed freak about 60 seconds into the typical pulse sequence.  He could even get burns, not to mention the image quality would be non-existent.

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
    Dark like me—
That is my dream!

To fling my arms wide
In the face of the sun,
Dance!  Whirl!  Whirl!
Till the quick day is done.
Rest at pale evening . . .
A tall, slim tree . . .
Night coming tenderly
    Black like me.
