A tatto freak known as the Human Chequerboard has taken his obsession to an agonising new level by having ink injected into the whites of his eyes.
Matt Gone, from Portland, Oregon, boasts that 98 per cent of his body is now covered in tattoos.
The bizarre chequerboard pattern covers his head and face. Now his eyes are permanently coloured - one blue, the other green.

And he carried out the risky operation by himself at his home, according to the website Nine News.
Mr Gone told the US television station Fox12: 'I patch-tested it and was successful. I had to take the risk. I've done that a lot of times before.
'I'm not crazy. I'm trained. I have a lot of experience. I picked different colours because I like mutations because I have birth defects.'
