  1. The boy is cute. I love his smile and besides being cute he has to have some major cojones.

  2. All the guys I've known who have extensive facial tattoos are all lookers. I'm glad people like Rick exist, I think his tattoos are great and I support what makes him happy, but I'll never get this. I can't help but marvel at why men who are perfectly fine-looking would do this to themselves.

  3. Talk about gilding the lily.

  4. This is an amazing ad.

  5. With or without the tattoos, I don't find this guy attractive at all. But that is a very impressive product. That kind of opacity while maintaining a natural look is remarkable.

  6. He is living art

    What he has had done to himself is so far beyond tattoos it is like comparing the sun to a firecracker.

    Tattoos are gross and a waste of good flesh, but what he has done is art. When he is dead it is art that will no longer exist which makes it even more amazing

    The reasoning behind why he did it all is touching. He thought he was dieing of cancer and his family kicked him out of the house.

    Each bit of tattooing on him blends and compliments the rest.

    Anyway; that is some damn impressive cover up make-up

  8. Cue the frigid queens who hate everyone different in three, two, one...

  11. I always wondered what he'd look like under all the ink. I never anticipated that I'd get to see! Honestly, I think he's hotter with the art. Decent looking guy in flesh tones, but mesmerizing as art.

  12. Tattoos are appalling, but this is a sad defilement of one's own body. More regretfully, it's a permanent one.

  13. The final effect is that of a corpse prepped for a funeral home viewing.

  14. Best. Ad. Ever!

  15. As a professional make-up artist for over twenty five years.... this is amazing!

  16. in a video, him/his art are great to look at on multiple levels. that said, there are a few insanity "tells" here on the streets of NYC., and top of the list/No.1: if someone's face is inked, 99% of the time, they're insane. No. 2 "tell": an African-American Republican.

  17. i wonder if he looks at the non-tattooed self and thinks "what did I do?"

  18. I love all the backhanded compliments. Who cares about your judgments. If I had a dollar for every time some gay man told me I'd be so attractive without all those tattoos...we're not here for your consumption.

  19. Does anyone know the music playing in the background???

  20. Cool. Looks great with our without.

  21. @Dev, having an unfavorable opinion doesn't make someone a frigid queen, so please knock off the annoying name-calling.

  22. I think he is beautiful, it's sad that so many gay men have a very narrow perception of beauty. It's even sadder that so many gay men conform to that narrow perception in order to be thought of as hot. Far too many clones.

    The song in the background is: There is hope by Zoo Brazil feat. Rasmus Kellerman.

  23. Music:
    "There is Hope"
    Zoo Brazil Feat. Rasmus Kellerman.

  24. Yes, it's certainly art. I'm fascinated by this guy, as I am with anyone who knows themselves intimately enough to make such changes to their body. (I feel the same kind of respect for trans folks.)

    But all I could think of was how his mom probably cried when they put that concealer on him. :)

  25. I'm not usually a fan of body canvas, but for some reason I make an exception for him, there's something about him...I just think he's cute.
