As children, many of us have fantasized about being someone else; a movie character, a hero, or even a villain. Halloween was always the special moment to impersonate that character. For this Venezuelan man called Henry Damon, things went a little farther. He became completely obsessed with Red Skull, the super villain from Captain America. Henry Damon decided to literally become Red Skull. Take a look at the pictures below. It’s really unbealievable.
This is Henry before the transformation started.
He started by inserting implants in his forehead.
Then, he had his nose removed. This is a picture taken right before the surgery.
After his nose healed, this is what he looked like.
But removing the nose wasn’t enough. He also tattooed his eyeballs black and the rest of his face red in order to look just like Red Skull.
Before beginning this huge transition, Damon had to go through physical and psychological tests to ensure he was healthy.
Emilio Gonzalez, the man who performed the surgeries, said: “Henry aka Red Skull is physically and intellectually healthy. 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,” says Gonzalez. As you may see, Damon hasn’t achieve Red Skull’s exact appearance, but he is getting there.
This is the villain, Red Skull.
Here’s a video that summarizes the transformation. If you’re susceptible and sensitive towards graphic images, don’t watch it. After all, he had his nose removed.
