King of Ink Land King Body Art The Extreme Ink-Ite is fighting to keep his arm after his latest bodywork was rejected by his body. He had the implant in 2015 to ‘reflect his days as a fighter’, but his skin has now split and he must undergo surgery to save his arm. The 37-year-old from Birmingham, formerly known as Matthew Whelan, has more than 300 tattoos, he has dyed both his eyes black, removed his nipples to make room for more tattoos, carved ‘teeth marks’ into his ears and split his tongue in half. King of Ink changed his name in 2008 and has spent more than £40,000 on modifying his body.
Isn’t that weird?
