Man spends 10 years tattooing himself black
A tattoo artist has spent the last decade coloring his skin black.
BRIGHTON, UK — A body modification artist has spent the last ten-years transforming himself and now sports almost entirely black skin, dyed eyeballs and implant stretchers in his nose and lip.
Eli Ink is a 27-year-old tattoo artist from Brighton England who became obsessed with body mods at a young age after seeing his uncle's tribal tattoo.
Inspired by Picasso and abstract painting, the body modification artist wanted to look like an abstract character in one of Picasso's paintings, so he covered most of the outside of his body with layers of black ink, and he has also tattooed the inside of his mouth and his eyeballs.
Besides the ink, the tattoo artist has A LOT of piercings and massive stretchers in either side of his nose and bottom lip.
However, the artist's girlfriend said that the artist's body is still a work in progress that he is gonna spend his whole life to 'perfecting his work'.
