A Colombian man who goes with the social media appellation, Kalaca Skull, has had his nose cut off, ears mutilated and eyes tattooed on his face in a bid to make his face look like a skull.
Kalaca Skull, whose real name is Eric Yeiner Hincapie Ramirez, has been undergoing extreme surgical procedures to make his face look like a skeleton for the last two years.
The 22-year-old, from Colombia, says he has always loved skulls ever since he was a child, but only started modifying his face after his mother died because she didn’t approve of it.
One of the first procedures Kalaca had was to remove the lower half of his nose and cut off his ear lobes.
He then had his tongue split in half and tattooed it to a blue-grey colour before tattooing large black eye-sockets around his eyes.
Large teeth and hollow space was shaded in ink around his mouth and his hair was shaved into a mow-hawk style to show off his head tattoos.
He told Rio Noticias website: “Body modifications are a personal decision and should not be judged.”
