In what looks like a challenge from America’s Next Top Model, 24-year-old Canadian model Vin Los has covered his face, neck and torso with dozens of permanently tattooed words.
Not only does he have his own name across his stomach, Vin’s face and arms are covered with random words like “iconic,” “sex bomb,” “fame,” and “guilty.”
Speaking to Vice, Vin explains: ‘Drawings don’t mean anything to me. It may sound like I have bad values or something, but my tattoos aren’t just for me. I want to be an image for people to look at, something that has an impact. Everybody who sees me is bound to ask questions: “Why fame? What’s his life like?”’
As far as where his choice words came from, he says they’re completely random.
‘It’s very superficial. I’ll go on YouTube and listen to all the big hits and I’ll just take words from these songs. For example, “Top of the World” is from the song by The Cataracs, but it’s also what I want.’
How does Vin feel about having these words on his face for the rest of his life?
‘A lot of people ask me if I’m scared I might regret it one day. If I was indecisive, I don’t think I would write on my face.’
*sigh* He’s a good looking guy — why couldn’t he just leave it at that? Check out some more photos of Vin below.
