Terrifying pictures have been released of a tattoo addict that completed his entire body tattoo by tattooing his eyeballs and interior of his mouth.
His whole body is now tattooed completely with black ink, with barely any original skin color showing.
After 10 years, he has finished his entire body, he says that his plan is to use the black as a dark canvas for more tattoos over it.
Eli, the tattoo addict, describes himself as a body-modification enthusiast. He told Mirror, that he wants his body to mimic a Picasso painting. The famous painter is one of his biggest inspirations.
"I’ve always been blown away by art itself. Picasso is a huge childhood inspiration to me, especially abstract art, but I do like all forms of art. Body art was just the next local step for me growing up," Eli said.
By tattooing his eyeballs, he underwent huge risks. This procedure involves carefully injecting ink between two layers of the eye, ouch.
Aside from the tattoos, Eli has also has huge stretchers implanted into his nose and lower lip. This is part of his body-modification, as he is trying to stretch his skin in different shapes.
He explained that he doesn't expect others to understand his look, he does it for himself.
He even has a girlfriend that fully supports his body-modification.
He seems to look at his body as a piece of art that will continue to change and grow. He hopes to see more abstract artists in the tattoo industry in the near future, so he can connect and relate to other body-modification enthusiasts.
For now, he will continue to experiment with his extreme looks, and evolve them even further.
