You could say that Henry Damon is a fan of Marvel Comic’s Red Skull character, but that would be kind of like saying that the ocean is wet.
Damon (who also now goes by the name Red Skull), a 37 year-old Venezuelan father and husband, has recently finished a series of cosmetic procedures
to make him look like Captain America’s nemesis, including, but not limited to, tattooing his eyeballs and having parts of his nose surgically removed.
According to Pablo Fernandez, a long time friend of Damon’s, “He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got round to doing it.” His favorite character was, obviously, Red Skull, the Nazi antagonist to Captain America who debuted in 1941. He started by getting a number of subdermal implants in his forehead and red cheek tattoos
, but decided to take it to the next level upon meeting Emilio Gonzalez, a tattoo artist, body modification specialist and med school dropout.
Gonzalez insisted that Damon underwent a series of physical and psychological tests before agreeing to the procedures, including getting his eyeballs tattooed black and having part of his nose removed
. Gonzalez stated that “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.”
Gonzalez continued “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.”
Damon is next planning on getting silicone implants in his cheeks and getting his entire face tattooed red to complete the look.
