One comic book fan went to extremes to look like his favorite Captain America character, Red Skull, and the results of his transformation are shocking.
Henry Damon, 37, of Caracas, Venezuela has been a fan of comic books for most of his life, and now, he’s undergone a number of procedures to fulfill his lifelong dream of look like Captain America villain Red Skull.
“He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it,” 38-year-old Pablo Hernandez, Damon’s friend, explained. “Then he met up with a brilliant surgeon who specializes in extreme body modifications and just knew that this was his opportunity.”
Damon first had several subdermal implants placed in his forehead, and recently, he had his nose shaved down to look like the Marvel villain. Damon took his transformation to new levels by having his eyes blackened and getting red and black face tattoos.
The procedures were reportedly performed by a “surgeon” named Emilio Gonzalez. Reports say Gonzalez is a medical school dropout and specializes in body modification and tattooing.
“Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person,” Gonzalez said of the rigorous physical and psychological testing that Damon had to undergo before getting the work done. “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.”
While it may seem like Damon has had enough done already, Gonzalez says there are still other procedures he will need before he can look like Red Skull.
“Next will be silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks,” Gonzalez said. “Then we will tattoo his entire face red and then he will be Red Skull.”
