Extreme Comic Book Nerd Cuts Off Nose To Look Like Red Skull
You know that comic book fans can really overdo it when it comes to expressing their love for their favorite heroes. Just go to any Comic Con and you’ll see what we mean. But some people don’t stop at merely wearing ridiculous costumes in inappropriate situations. Some are just more dedicated and true in their love than others.
Henry Damon is definitely one of those super-fans. In fact, he might be the ultimate comic book fan. This 37-year old man from Caracas, Venezuela, is going through a series of body modification procedures in order to look exactly like Red Skull, the villain from the Captain America comic books.
Damon started with subdermal implants under the skin in his forehead. He then went on to have the tip of his nose surgically removed. This surely gave him the look he wanted – his head now looks like a meatless skull of a disintegrating corpse. He also kind of looks like Michael Jackson, but that’s a whole different story.
This man’s goal is to insert implants underneath his cheeks, his cheekbones and chin, and finally to get a permanent red tattoo all over his face, which will give him a red complexion.
So far, the man just looks creepy as hell. Maybe he does look like Red Skull, but for the majority of people who are not into comics, he just looks scary.
His surgeon, on the other hand, sees no problem with Damon’s transformation. He says the man is completely healthy, both physically and intellectually (sic), and also a good son, father and husband.
