A man in Venezuela has gone to extremes in order to look like Captain America’s arch nemesis Red Skull. Making his 2011 big screen debut in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, Red Skull is notable for being the beneficiary of a flawed scientific experiment, one that left him with superhuman strength but also without a nose and looking as red as a spring breaker who passed out in the sand.
Some of you may say that the obsessions with Red Skull by Henry Damon (37) of Venezuela is unhealthy, but who are we to judge? If a man wants to get subdermal implants into his forehead, cut off his nose, and get full facial tattoos all to look like a comic book character, well dammit that’s his right! Also, as weird as he looks, he DEFINITELY looks better than that cat lady from the 90’s.
A Venezuelan man has taken body modification to the extreme in a bid to make himself look like comic book super villain Red Skull.
Henry Damon, 37, had already had several subdermal implants on his forehead before having part of his nose removed in order to achieve the right Marvel madman look.
Despite the drastic surgery, Mr Damon, from Caracas, Venezuela, is getting ready to take it even further to fulfill his dream.
The married father, who now calls himself Red Skull, also tattooed his eyeballs black before adding red and back face tattoos to look like the comic book villain.
After meeting up with med-school dropout Emilio Gonzalez, who specialises in tattooing and extreme body surgery, Mr Damon ‘knew that this was his opportunity,’ a friend said.
‘He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it,’ friend Pablo Hernandez said.
Before the surgery, Mr Damon underwent several physical and psychological tests, according to his ‘surgeon’ Mr Gonzalez.
Oh, so someone tested him to make sure he was sane before stuffing his forehead full of implants and tattooing his face red. Well, that’s good.
‘Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person,’ Mr Gonzalez 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.’
Mr Gonzalez added that Mr Damon is not done with his transformation, and is about to take it even further.
How the hell is there a ‘but wait, there’s more….’ moment when it comes to body modification?!? You already look as disfigured as any man could ever hope to achieve, what possibly could you do to go further?!
Has anyone bothered to tell this guy there were ‘Captain America’ sequels? Sequels without villains who looked like sunburnt aliens?
Here’s a video of his transformation…WARNING: There’s obviously some gross parts in this video, including a severed nose, so watch at your own risk:
