A Captain America fan obsessed with comic book super villain Red Skull, has had part off his nose chopped off and implants put into his face just to look the spitting image of one of Marvel’s most popular bad guys.
Venezuelan man Henry Damon didn’t think twice about going under the surgeon’s blade and suffering buckets full of pain in his bid to transform his appearance to resemble that of IGN’s 14th greatest comic book villain of all time.
If mutilation floats your boat, then the Daily Mail reports that the 37-year-old boasts a history of quite impressive extreme body modification. The Captain America fan has already had several subdermal implants on his forehead, and had a section of his nose chopped off in order to rock the Marvel madman look.
Yet in order to fulfil his dream of strutting down the street and looking to all and sundry like Captain America’s arch enemy writ large, Henry is preparing himself for more drastic action and invasive surgery.
As well as having his nose sliced apart and his face filled with filler, the married father, who now only answers to the name of Red Skull, has also had his eyeballs tattooed black and had red and black tattoo shading added to his face in his ambition to look like Captain America’s nemesis. So the question remains how much more invasive or drastic can any further surgery be? Well, you’d be surprised.
The man responsible for Henry’s transformation into Red Skull is med-school dropout Emilio Gonzales. Emilio who is now a specialist in tattooing and extreme body surgery believes there’s only a few more procedures left before Henry becomes Red Skull for real.
“Next will be silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks.Then we will tattoo his entire face red and then he will be Red Skull.”
It has to be said, Red Skull is no looker, not even in a sort of charismatic pantomime villain way, so one has to wonder if Emilio is not being professionally negligent in transforming Henry into the Nazi agent arch-enemy of Captain America.
The “surgeon” insists that Henry underwent several physical and psychological tests before being turned into what to most people looks like the sort of hellish monster that Satan would only call upon when he was terribly out-gunned.
“Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person. He’s an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification. Most of my customers know that body modification is the last step of body art, everyone knows very well what they want and as well as Henry, many of them are waiting for me for many years to make their dreams a reality.”
