Man gets his ears chopped to make his head look like a skull

A tattoo addict in Germany got his ear removed last year and kept it in a jar to make his head resemble a skull.

This was not the first time 39-year-old Sandro had grabbed eyeballs for his bizarre body art. Known as Mr Skull Face on social media, the social media sensation has spent more than £6,000 on body modifications.

Sandro, a resident of Finsterwalde has had forehead and back-of-the-hand implants and also has tattoos covering his face. He is now planning to have the tip of his nose removed and his eyeballs tattooed.

Sandro’s interest in extreme body modifications developed in 2007 when he saw someone on TV who had spikes implanted in their head.

He accepts that making such extreme changes to his appearance has had effects on his job and relationships. Sandro said that his friends and family consider him a “sick freak”, but he does not care. He wants people to accept him for who he is and not just the way he looks.
