A 32-year-old man whose body is 90 per cent covered in tattoo has now gotten rid of his genitals.
The Russian, Adam Curlykale, says his penis was ruining his look, and paid to undergo a surgery to remove the organ.
Mr Curlykale from Kaliningrad started tattooing his body, including his eyeballs, with black ink after he was diagnosed with cancer 12 years ago, The Metro says.
The tattoo-mania, who also has albinism, says he started drawing ink on himself because he felt depressed by his pale skin.
He has now shared pictures with his fans on social media after having his penis, nipples and testicles removed.
Adam became famous in 2017 after taking part in the TV show ‘Second Face’ in Poland where he said he wanted the tattoos to cover the blemishes that were left behind by the cancer.
He eventually beat the cancer but while in recovery he had been left with a weakened immune system and was depressed by this and the fact that his skin looked sickly and pale.
When doctors diagnosed him with albinism, he had started adding tattoos, and discovered a passion for the art once he saw the results.
Local media reported that he had to travel to Jardines Hospital in Guadalajara in Mexico to have the operation to remove his nipples and private parts.
