A Colombian man has had his nose cut off, ears mutilated and eyes tattooed on his face so his head can look like a skull.
Tattoo artist Kalaca Skull, real name Eric Yeiner Hincapié Ramírez, has been undergoing extreme surgical procedures to make his face look like a skeleton for the last two years.
The 22-year-old says he had been fascinated by skulls ever since he was a child, but only started making his face look like a skeleton after his mother’s death because she did not approve of the extreme body modification.
During the painful procedures Kalaca had the lower half of his nose removed and most of his ear lobes cut off.
After splitting his tongue in half and tattooing it to a blue-grey colour, he then had large black eye-sockets tattooed around his eyes.
Large teeth and even the hollow space between the mandible and maxilla was then shaded in ink
around his mouth.
He also shaved his hair into a mow-hawk style to show off his head tattoos
