A comic book fan has gone to extreme lengths to make himself look like a super villain – by cutting off his nose.
Henry Damon already had bumps put on his forehead and arms in a bid to look like Red Skull from Captain America.
But it obviously wasn’t enough for the 37-year-old dad of two from Venezuelan capital Caracas, who is now planning even more work on his face.
The surgeon Henry went to was Emilio Gonzalez – a medical school drop-out who wanted to follow his passion of tattooing and extreme body surgery.
He said: ‘Henry aka Red Skull is a physically and intellectually healthy person.
‘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.’
But he admitted that chopping off Henry’s nose was only the first step towards changing him into Red Skull.
Emilio added: ‘Next will be silicone implants on the cheekbones, chin and cheeks.
‘Then we will dye his face read and then he will be Red Skull.’
Pal Pablo Hernandez, 38, said of the happily married dad: ‘He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it.’
Ranked as the 14th greatest comic book villain of all time, Red Skull first appeared in 1947 as the arch-enemy of comic book hero Captain America.
He was most recently portrayed by Hugo Weaving in the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger.
