ADAM CURLYKALE STARTED TATTOOING HIS ENTIRE BODY AFTER HE SURVIVED CANCER

As far as weird news go, Adam Curlykale can make only that. He got his first tattoo when he was 20-years-old. It was a small two-word, three-letter message on his arm: “I am.” But Curlykale, now 32, has undergone a major transformation.

In the 12 years since that first tattoo, he’s tattooed almost his entire body (at least 90 percent of it) – including his face and eyeballs – with jet black ink. He has several body piercings as well.

But that still wasn’t enough to satisfy him. Feeling that they were interfering with the aesthetic of his look, Curlykale had his nipples, penis, and testicles surgically removed on July 14.

A resident of Kaliningrad, Russia, Curlykale traveled to Jardines Hospital in Guadalajara, Mexico to have the operation.

“I’ve just had a nullification surgery, had a lot of bleeding but luckily no need for a blood transfusion,” he wrote post-surgery.

At 22-years-old, Adam Curlykale was diagnosed with colon cancer. He was lucky to survive, but months of radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments severely weakened his immune system. As a result, he developed several skin conditions including albinism, whereby part of the skin’s pigmentation disappears.

That’s when he started tattooing his whole body. He saw the tattoos as a refuge from the deep depression he felt. “I did not accept myself and others did not accept me,” Curlykale said, and he suffered from eating disorders and even attempted suicide. “Tattoos allowed me to discover myself again, I became beautiful to myself,” he said.

Though people looking at him differently can be a deterrent, it clearly hasn’t altered the way he makes choices. In fact, Adam Curlykale already has plans for the small portion of his body that’s not yet tattooed.

After he continues tattooing his armpits and buttocks black, Curlykale wants to finish off the project by tattooing mandalas (a traditional figure in Hinduism and Buddhism) on the palms of his hands and soles of his feet. We’ll stay tuned for the weird news of his finished product to hit the headlines.
