Man cuts off half his nose and his ears so he can look like a living skull

The tattoo artist says he has been obsessed with skulls since childhood – but he got really serious about looking like one when his mum died.

His gruesome procedures include having the bottom half of his nose removed and his ear lobes cut off.

He split his tongue in two and dyed it grey, then had dark eye sockets permanently inked onto his face.

Kalaca Skull had skeletal teeth shaded around his mouth.
