A comicbook fan who dreamed of looking like Captain America’s archnemesis Red Skull has had his nose removed (!!!), ridges implanted under his skin, and the whites of his eyes and face tattooed. Whether or not you choose to click over to the reveal is entirely up to you, but I must warn you: It’s definitely A LOOK YOU WON’T SOON FORGET.
“Henry, aka Red Skull, is a physically and intellectually healthy person,’ Emilio Gonzalez, the man who performed the operation, said. “He’s an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification. Most of my customers know that body modification is the last step of body art, everyone knows very well what they want and as well as Henry, many of them are waiting for me for many years to make their dreams a reality.”
And while I’m all for living the dream, and making your outsides match your insides etc etc, I am a BIT put off by this. I mean – not to get too pedantic or grandmotherly about it – but your nose is shaped the way it is for a reason, and with just the two holes in your head it’s not going to filter out foreign bodies the way it should. Also, when you blow it, it’s just going to shoot mucous everywhere, isn’t it?
Wither the Hippocratic Oath, Emilio Gonzalez? What about “First do no harm?”
Also: After all that, he doesn’t even really look like Red Skull, so, um, what’s up with THAT?
