Eli Ink, a 27-year-old tattoo addict from Brighton underwent a 10-year transformation to turn himself into a walking exhibition of his tats, by going through ink-redible lengths to cover his entire body in black tattoos; including his eyeballs and the inside of his lips.
The tattoo addict reportedly dyed his eyes to complete the striking look, used several coats of black colouring to permanently blacken his skin and implanted huge stretchers in his nose and under his bottom lip as part of his body-modification process.
“In my opinion, the only person who will only ever understand my transition properly is me. I don’t attempt to describe it to anyone,” he told the Mail Online.“I’ve always been blown away by art itself. Picasso is a huge childhood inspiration to me, especially abstract art, but I do like all forms of art. Body art was just the next local step for me growing up.“I wanted to look like an abstract character in one of Picasso’s paintings. I love the abstract look, no thought , just pure expression” he said.
