Comic book fan chops off half his nose to look like Marvel's Red Skull

6 February 2015 / 1 year 8 months ago

Some would think chopping off your nose in the name of being a "superfan" is going too far. 

37-year-old Henry Damon of Caracas, Venezuela, certainly doesn’t seem to think so.

According to Paste Magazine, he enlisted the help of former medical-student-turned-body-modification-artist Emilio Gonzalez to turn him into Captain America nemesis the Red Skull.

Damon had implants put into his forehead to give it a ridged look before committing to the most drastic change in his appearance – cutting off a large portion of his nose.

Gonzalez made sure that Damon was completely healthy before consenting to the procedure.

”I asked for a tomography of the nose and sinuses to assure me that it was OK for surgery. Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person,” Gonzalez said.

“He’s an excellent son, husband and father, who has an extreme taste for body modification.”

Damon now only goes by the moniker “Red Skull” and has begun tattooing his face red and black to complete his transformation.
