Stuff: "If I get my eyes blacked in I’ll get my nose removed."

Over a Bizarre magazine's web site you can read an interview with "Rick," pictured above. Rick has dropped more than four grand and spent more than 24 hours under the needle to develop an elaborate zombie tattoo that covers most of the upper half of his body.

A couple of interview highlights:

How about your mum?
Well, I don’t think this is what my mother had in mind for me. When I got my hands done it broke her heart. She said, “You’ve got your hands tattooed like a skeleton! You’re never going to get a decent job!” But once she saw I was determined about it she was like, “If that’s what you want to do, make sure you go all the way. Don’t just start it and then change your mind. If you’re going to be sure enough to tattoo your fucking face like that, then you’ve got to be sure enough to do the whole fucking thing.”


Have you ever thought about having the tip of your nose removed?
Yes, and I’ve seen it before on TV. This guy had a flesh-eating disease and he was able to get his nose cut off because they gave him a prosthetic replacement. I was so jealous. I wanted it so bad. If I get my eyes blacked in I’ll get my nose removed.

And I thought boob jobs were ill-advised.

wow - sometimes its good to see someone who is so completely and utterly weird like that - just when you are walking around, talking to yourself saying "man I'm crazy and weird", you see someone like that and go "No I'm normal".

I'm kind of under the impression if you're going to walk around noseless you really should come by it honestly... If this guy was REALLY committed, he'd find a nice leper to make out with...

All that money, time, pain and social ostracism... when he would get the same results soon enough naturally.

ockerouac,

Perhaps I'm just a pushover when it comes to missing noses, but I feel any way one loses part of your nose counts. For me, the ends justify the means.

some people really should seek medical help before it is too late

Of course, this obsessed individual would read "really should seek medical help" and say, "I know, I know I should... but AFTER I have my eyes blacked out!"
