I dont even wanna look. I do know body modifications are becoming more common. The one I typically see are the ear lobes. Even those look ridiculous. Some people get too obsessed with characters to the point of wanting to look like them. Crazy!

But he's so employable!

Weirdly, this guy might have a niche in the film business in his future....

And yet, he has severely limited his options and choice. Unwise--to say the least!

Secondly, no plastic surgeon should have agreed to do this. That in itself is malpractice. (Oh, nm. I just read his friend, a medical school dropout, did the nose removal). Some people who are really into body mods do subdermal implants, and even though they look gross, they are safe to insert and keep under the skin. And what about future employment? For posters who ask people with tattoos about their concerns about future employment, this guy takes the cake. There have to be some psychological issues going on.
I wondered that same thing. I'm a lifelong sufferer of sinus problems and headaches, ugh - I sure would think this would have medical implications down the road. Your nose filters, warms and adds humidity to the air you breath - I think you'd end up breathing in irritants with half your nose gone.

Also - what if you need an oxygen tank with tubes, an oxygen mask, or nasal feeding tube down the road?

Also - I noticed the article mentioned (and the pictures show) that he had tattooed his eyes so they were black. How the heck does one even do that and what are the long term medical ramifications?

What's wrong with his face isn't nearly as bad as what's wrong with his brain.

So... The guy tattoos his face and eyeballs, gets face implants, and cuts off his nose to look like Red Skull, but he won't shave his head or facial hair?

Once you cut off your nose, you need to fully commit to the character. Of that means shaving your head, you shave your head.

Jeez, he should have gotten in touch with Michael Jackson's surgeon, the results would have been much closer to the look he was aiming for.
