Over the last seven years, Henry Rodriguez has been modifying his body in order to look like the Marvel supervillain, the Red Skull. If you’re not familiar with the Red Skull, he’s the arch-enemy of Captain America. He’s also a red-faced Nazi.
Some of Henry’s body modifications include his eyes being tattooed black, implants being inserted into his head to give his face skull-like features. Henry has even gone so far as to have his nose cut off!
This all started when Henry met Emilio Gonzalez, a medical school dropout with an interest in tattoos and body modifications, as well as extreme body surgery.
‘I wanted to turn myself into this amazing comic book character I’ve admired since I was little. I feel like there are similarities between this character and I regarding personality and attitude.’ Henry said.
However, Henry is very clear that though he wants to be similar to the Red Skull, he does not share the same feelings toward’s the character’s Nazi background. ‘The only thing I don’t have in common with him is his Nazi ideology.’
