Adam Curlykale, 32, from the city of Kaliningrad in the western Russian exclave of Kaliningrad Oblast, started tattooing himself to cover up skin blemishes after being treated for cancer.
He had been depressed by his sickly and pale appearance and decided to start covering his skin with tattoos, discovering a passion for the art once he saw the results.
That resulted in him spending the next 12 years tattooing 90 percent of his body, including his eyeballs, with grey ink before deciding that he was still not happy with his appearance because his genitals and nipples looked out of place. So he decided to have them removed.
He reportedly travelled to Jardines Hospital in the city of Guadalajara in western Mexico to have the operation to remove his nipples and private parts.
Curlykale has now shared pictures with his followers on social media which show him showing off his body in the artsy snaps which were posted online with London as the location.
He added a series of cryptic captions with the photos, such as: “With my every breath I loose faith that salvation is close…”
Posing with a golden cup, Curlykale wrote: “This is the price of being immortal – a body of blood…”
He became famous in 2017 after taking part in Poland’s ‘Second Face’ TV show in which he said he wanted the tattoos to cover the blemishes left behind from cancer.
He said: “I belong to a type of people called ‘nullo’ which means that I’m an agamic person, but asexual doesn’t mean that I don’t have a sex drive.
“People from the ‘nullo’ community don’t want to have body parts like nipples, a belly button or genitals which determine if you’re a man or a woman.”
