— Curlykale has penis removed for not matching his tattooed body
A man who has had 90% of his body covered in black ink has now decided to have his genitals removed. Adam Curlykale, 32, from Kaliningrad in Russia, decided to start tattooing his body, including his eyeballs, with black ink after he was diagnosed with cancer 12 years ago. The 32-year-old, who also has albinism, says he started tattooing himself because he felt depressed by his pale skin.
And after getting almost 90% of his body covered, Adam felt that his penis ruined his look so he paid to undergo the extreme surgery. He has now shared pictures with his fans on social media after having his penis, nipples and testicles removed. Adam became famous in 2017 after taking part in the TV show ‘Second Face’ in Poland where he said he wanted the tattoos to cover the blemishes that were left behind by the cancer.
He eventually beat the cancer but while in recovery he had been left with a weakened immune system and was depressed by this and the fact that his skin looked sickly and pale. When doctors diagnosed him with albinism, he had started adding tattoos, and discovered a passion for the art once he saw the results. He said: ‘I always knew that I was different from the rest of society. My favourite colour for example has always have been grey, in different tones, and that’s why my current skin colour is graphite.’
With regards to the small section of skin still without tattoos, he said he is still planning. He said: ‘I design my tattoos because it’s my body. I have a specific vision for myself and I do it step by step. Life is so short that I stopped wondering what will happen tomorrow. Life is here and now.’ Local media reported that he had to travel to Jardines Hospital in Guadalajara in Mexico to have the operation to remove his nipples and private parts.
