18-year-old Karim Boumjimar decided he had no use for his nipples and belly button, so naturally he had them illegally removed to make them into jewelry he plans to sell.
Uhhh, ok. This is seriously some Ed Gein/Buffalo Bill/Leatherface scary kind of shit to me.
I got rid of my nipples and I’m selling them. My belly button necklace is coming soon too :-) pic.twitter.com/9YmcgQ8xG5

I mean, I realize that they’re all pretty much completely useless to men, but I like having my nips. And my belly button, but that’s apparently not the case for Boumjimar. He says he was inspired to have his nipples and belly button illegally surgically removed by Leonardo DaVinci’s “Mona Lisa.” He told Dazed:
[The “Mona Lisa”] has no eyebrows or eyelashes. It’s really interesting how da Vinci meticulously paid attention to every single detail but chose not to give her eyebrows or the eyelashes.
