Meet The English Man Who Decides To Tattoo Himself Black

Most people prefer their art on their walls not as a permanent fixture of their bodies. But Eli Ink, a 27-year-old tattoo artist from Brighton, England, sees his body as a walking exhibition of his finest work.

He has spent the last ten years transforming himself. Tattooing most of his skin black with several coats of ink, dying his eyes and implanting stretchers in his nose and under his bottom lip. The process is far from finished, but the result is striking.

Eli’s obsession with body modification started from a young age after his uncle came back from Spain with a huge tribal tattoo.

‘In my opinion, the only person who will only ever understand my transition properly is me. I don’t attempt to describe it to anyone,’ he told MailOnline.

‘I’ve always been blown away by art itself. Picasso is a huge childhood inspiration to me, especially abstract art, but I do like all forms of art. Body art was just the next local step for me growing up.’

You can easily see his obsession with the ab…

Photos Of How People Will Look Like in 2100

Scientists have discovered how people will look like in 2100.



A company has created a 3D model of a future human, based on some of these scientific predictions - and the result is truly horrifying.

Dubbed "Mindy", the human of 2100 has a hunched back, caused by hours sitting in front of a computer monitor at the office and craning her neck to look at smartphones.

"The way we hold our phones can cause strain in certain points of contact – causing 'text claw' and '90-degree elbow' also known as the cubital tunnel syndrome," said Dr Nikola Djordjevic from Med Alert Help.

"This syndrome is caused by pressure or the stretching of the ulnar nerve which runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.



"This causes numbness or a tingling sensation in the ring and little fingers, forearm pain, and weakness in the hands - keeping the elbow bent for a long time."

Mindy's final physical change is possibly her most outlandish - she has a secon…

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…

Man Stops Drinking Alcohol, Narrates How Much Sobriety Changed Him In 3 Years

Giving up your vices and guilty pleasures can lead to a happier and healthier life that’s full of purpose. Even though you might not see the changes day-to-day when you give up drinking alcohol, they’re very apparent to others. One of the things that can keep you motivated is documenting the changes and looking at the photos side by side.

Well, one man has made the phrase ‘one day at a time’ fit both his fight with alcoholism and documenting his journey through sobriety. These last three years, Kenny D. has taken snaps of how he looked when he quit alcohol at key stages in his journey of sobriety. The changes within the first month are already huge and he is almost unrecognizable in the final pictures.

Kenny went sober three years ago. When he took his first photo, he was feeling awful.

“I took a picture of myself the day I got my first sobriety coin, 24 hours sober. I felt so ill and I looked so bad, I wanted to remember it so I wouldn’t forget. The day I got my 30-day coin, I though…

Single Dad Adopted A Baby Girl Rejected By 20 Families

Single Dad Adopted A Baby Girl With Down Syndrome Who Was Rejected By 20 Families.

Luca Trapanese – a 41-year-old single man from Italy – adopted Alba when she was merely 13 days old. The little girl has Down’s Syndrome and was given up for adoption by her mother because of it. It wasn’t easy to find a new family for baby Alba – 20 families rejected the newborn because of her condition. But fortunately, Luca turned up and Alba’s life changed forever.
Ever since Luca was 14, he had been working and volunteering for organizations focused on children with special needs. He also always wanted to become a father, however, this posed certain struggles, as he was (and still is) single. Fortunately, in 2017 he was finally given permission to adopt under one condition.
Luca was told that he could only adopt a baby with special needs who had been previously rejected by traditional families. Luca was in 7th heaven – he knew he was finally bound to become a father, just like he always dreamed. “…

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA a question asked by a Quora Community User: The question goes like this:

"If USA is wealthier than Canada, why does Canada feel more developed (far cleaner cities, a lot less crime, fewer homeless people, significantly higher life expectancy)?"

Kelly Meilleur Has the best answer:

Dual citizen here (CDN/USA).

I will try to explain Canada.

There is an entirely different sense of right and wrong in Canada. Canadians are democratic. (Not just a democracy; there’s a difference.)

That means they are happy to pay taxes - big taxes - so that they have the resources they need in their neighbourhoods. They don’t need to earn big money to be able to afford a house in a good school district or private school tuition in order to ensure a good k-12 foundation for their kids.

Their children do not need to take on hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt for an undergraduate or professional degree at a good school. Some Americans think that th…

Teenager Has 29 Metal Balls Removed After Putting Them Up His Penis



Doctor in southeastern China has removed 29 magnetic beads from a teenager’s bladder, three months after shoving them up his penis ‘out of curiosity.’
According to Chinese media reports, the ‘curious’ schoolboy, named Lin, 13-year-old, had dozens of magnetic balls removed from his penis by surgeons at Xi’an Children’s Hospital in the capital of China.
Remarkably, the teenager suffered intense abdominal pain for three months but was embarrassed to talk to his parents about it.
After Lin was performed an X-ray scan, the analysis revealed the magnetic beads had formed a tight cluster under his bladder.


The young teen told doctors that he had inserted the string of metallic balls into his urethra ‘out of curiosity.’
According to reports, the young boy is now recovering from the surgery and has already been discharged to continue recuperation at home.

Parents Shocked After Giving Birth To A Blond Baby Girl With Light Skin

Mexican-American Parents Are Shocked After Giving Birth To A Blond Baby Girl With Light Skin.

Someone once said that every person is a miracle. And while it’s true that we all come in different shapes and sizes, it’s a common belief that genetics isn’t Russian roulette. 
Therefore, most parents expect their babies to look like them but well, some of those miracles are more surprising than others and leave their parents in shock only seconds after screaming their hello to this new world. 
This was exactly the case of the Mexican-American couple, Edith and Raul Garcia. And while their baby girl is not the first albino beauty, her story is truly special!
‘She is a blond?’ is what I asked, in total confusion.
Neither my sister, my best friend, nor husband said a single word.
‘Uhhh….is anyone seeing this?!’ I asked again, and finally one of the nurses answered after seeing how baffled I must have been said, ‘Well, if she has blue eyes, then she might be albino.’ She explained to my husband…

Man's Proposal To His Girlfriend In KFC Goes Viral As Journalist Tried To Shame Him

Journalist Tries To Shame Man For Proposing In KFC, It Backfires Hilariously As The Biggest Companies Are Offering To Fund Their Wedding.

True love doesn’t care about money. When you really love someone, it doesn’t matter where they take you to eat, what salary they earn, or what kind of education they have. Love is above all tangible things, assets, and extra zeros in the bank account.

However, not everyone is on the same page. Recently, one man in South Africa proposed to his girlfriend at a KFC chain restaurant. For most, it was a heartwarming moment worth capturing on video (we’re glad they did), while some saw an opportunity to drag the man down for being ‘broke.’ Well, the joke’s on this person who tried to roast the man in love, because the internet has come together to make sure the couple has the loveliest and fanciest wedding.

The heartwarming moment was captured by a passer-by who spotted the man kneeling down on one knee at the KFC restaurant in Vaal, South Africa. In the …
