A man who describes himself as a 'beautiful monster' says he has covered 95 percent of his body in tattoos.
Victor Hugo Peralta Rodriguez, who was born in Uruguay and now lives in Argentina, has spared no body parts in his pursuit of total tattooage - even inking his tongue, eyeballs and the tip of his old chap.
The 50-year-old got his first tattoo when he was 13 - 'f*ck' across his knuckles. A classic.
Now, more than 80 tattoo artists across the world have had a go on him, and he has also had a whole host of body modifications done, including: subdermal implants, tongue splits, scarifications, micro-dermal piercings, metal teeth, ear incisions and a lobe expansion.
When you've had so many alternative cosmetic treatments, it's quite tricky to pick a favourite, but Victor likes the ones on his mush the most.
He said: "My favourite tattoos are the ones on my face, but I have been changing them to feel more comfortable with my aesthetics. I tattooed the whole of my face.
"Today I do not have so many piercings, I had around 40 on the face a long time ago, but my favourite is the septum."
But more pressingly, which was the most painful tattoo of all? Remarkably, his todger tats don't take top spot, though they're right up there.
He said: "The most painful tattoos I got were on the head of the penis, the face and ears - but they do not compare with the pain of the pigmentation of the tongue. It was very painful and difficult to breathe for a few hours."
All of the agony was worth it though for Victor, whose loved ones have supported his transformation from the start.
He said: "My friends and family are used to seeing me like this and they like it, they are even aware of my evolutions and they encourage me.
"Logically, there are many people who do not agree with this style of life and criticise me for not understanding the taste of others - those people are generally very old and still have prejudices, and maybe religious people who abuse their faith."
He continued: "But I don't pay attention to them. I am unique, I do not want to look like anyone, they are my ideas and designs executed by friends.
"There are many with tattooed faces and many make their faces like skulls, although those tattoos are beautiful, I am not interested in looking like others.
"Today, I am a beautiful monster."
