A man who has had 90 per cent of his body covered in black ink decided to have his genitals removed after they ‘interfered with the aesthetic enjoyment’ of his blackened physique.
Adam Curlykale, 32, from Kaliningrad in Russia decided to begin to tattoo his body after he was diagnosed with cancer.
Adam, who even has his eyeballs tattooed, also has albinism and felt depressed by his pale skin.
After getting getting to a whopping 90 per cent tattoo coverage, he felt that his penis ruined his look so he paid to undergo the extreme surgery.
Adam shared pictures with his fans on social media after he had his penis, nipples and testicles removed.
He became famous in 2017 after taking part in the TV show “Second Face” in Poland where he said he wanted the tattoos to cover the blemishes that were left behind by the cancer.
He eventually beat the cancer but while in recovery he had been left with a weakened immune system and was depressed by this and the fact that his skin looked sickly and pale.
When doctors diagnosed him with albinism, he had started adding tattoos, and discovered a passion for the art once he saw the results.
He said: “I always knew that I was different from the rest of society.
“My favourite colour for example has always have been grey, in different tones, and that’s why my current skin colour is graphite.”
With regards to the small section of skin still without tattoos he said he is still planning.
He said: “I design my tattoos because it’s my body. I have a specific vision for myself and I do it step by step. Life is so short that I stopped wondering what will happen tomorrow. Life is here and now.”
Local media reported that he had to travel to Jardines Hospital in Guadalajara in Mexico to have the operation to remove his nipples and private parts.
