A Russian bodybuilder who has 80 percent of his body including much of his face covered with tattoos says he now regrets having the body art done - and wants to have surgery to return to normal.
Denis Shalnykh, 26, became tattoo-obsessed in his late teenage years when he started dating his first love, a female tattoo artist identified by her first name as Margarita.
But the bodybuilder said he faced difficulties trying to find a job as no one wanted to hire a heavily-tattooed man.
He only recently managed to find a job as a physical education teacher in a school and Denis, who is also a dedicated bodybuilder, now teaches middle-school pupils.
But the young man, who is the son of famous Russian actress Elena Yakovleva, 56, says that now he is trying to live a regular life he regrets having the tattoos done and plans to get rid of them.
He told local media:
"I could not find a job for a long time. I think people refused to hire me because of my tattoos.
“I regret having them on my body. I plan to remove them all in the future."
Dozens of tattoos of different sizes cover Denis's body and he used to share pictures of his heavily-inked body with his social media followers.

Justin Bieber Still Has a Massive Tattoo For Selena Gomez and is Engaged to another girl wtf! See it here!!!!!!
Today in slightly awkward news, it appears as though Justin Bieber is still sporting an arm tattoo of his ex-girlfriend despite being engaged to Hailey Baldwin. And that ex-girlfriend is Selena Gomez.
The tattoo in question is of Selena's face, and is located on Justin's lower arm—mere inches from where his wedding ring will be. You can see the tat pretty clearly in recent photos of the Biebs hanging with Hailey post-engagement in NYC:
Should Justin Get This Removed?
Take a look for your self!
WHETHER it's a ex's name, a holiday mistake or a trend that's gone way out of fashion, plenty of people have tattoos they regret.
Obviously, the best thing to do is think very carefully before committing to getting inked - but it's easy to say that in hindsight. So, if you've got a tattoo that has just got to go, here are the top methods for getting rid from laser removal to surgery...
Laser tattoo removalLaser tattoo removal is the most recommended and most popular method of permanent tattoo removal. It works by breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo, which are then removed by the immune system.
How many sessions you'll need depends on the size and age of the tattoo and the colour - as some generally lighter-coloured, inks are more difficult to remove than others. Usually, results won't be absolutely immediate - with fading occurring gradually over the 2 month healing period between each treatment.
Tattoos can be faded ready for a cover up inking.
Laser removal can be uncomfortable, expensive, and in some cases leave scarring - but it's the most non-invasive permanent option, and it's completely safe.
Make upThere are a number of heavy-duty make-up products, such as Dermablend (£29.75) specifically designed for covering up tattoos - but there are plenty of high street brands which can be just as effective. The trick is to use a thicker, lighter-coloured concealer, then cover with a shade of foundation that matches your skin and set with powder for a natural look.
SurgeryDepending on the size of your tattoo, surgery to cut out the inked section of skin could be an option. Surgery is a quicker option - and sometimes gives good results as the scar fades. However, it can also cause unsightly scarring, and if the incisions made aren't deep enough the tattoo may not be totally removed. So, surgical removal isn't suitable for all types of tattoo, meaning it's crucial to seek a detailed consultation before making a decision.
What NOT to doThere are other, often outdated, tattoo removal methods you may come across while researching tattoo removal. Methods such as dermabrasion and salabrasion, which involve effectively sanding away the skin, are extremely painful, cause and put you at risk of infection. Meanwhile, cryotherapy, which freeze-burns the skin, can damage the skin outside of the tattooed area. Generally, methods which target the skin itself are best left alone.
Are tattoos really addictive?
Some people theorize that the pain that comes along with getting tattooed might be addictive, a type of euphoric rush. There have even been television shows based entirely on the psychological effects of tattoos, like Spike TV's "Ink Shrinks." Others say that tattooed people like the attention they get from new ink.
Tattoos idealize youth and fertility by drawing eyes to youthful skin and often erotic parts of the body, Kirby Farrell, Ph.D.,"We're social animals. It's how we're built... We rely on social behavior — attention — to substantiate us and make us feel real."
Tattoos promise to make you attractive, as if you have a personal force akin to gravity. Notice me, Dr. Farrell continues. "The more attraction you command, the more attention you get, and the more life you have — as we see in the public's devotion to celebrities and leaders."
I think that the short answer is that we don’t know. We don’t know whether it’s a real thing or not. And most people who study it suggest that it’s too early in terms of the research where tattoos specifically are a form of addiction,” More research needs to be done because there isn't enough evidence to show that addiction is driving people to get tattoos. If you give people a list of possible motivations for getting tattoos, addiction is one of the most poorly rated.
Tattoos are no new fad. Humans have been marking their skin for thousands of years with the reasoning behind tattoos varying from tribal allegiance and life history to decorative, whimsical or works of art.
The Maori, an indigenous people of New Zealand, carved designs into the flesh with bone chisels. Once they cut the designs into the skin, they dipped the chisel in ink and put it into the open gashes, The process of tattooing was considered sacred to the Maori, with the head being the most sacred part of the body, according to Zealand Tattoo. For this reason, facial tattoos were very popular among them.
Why the frequency?
Ultimately, there’s no single, definitive reason why people get lots of tattoos and others don’t, If you’re seeing more tattoos, it might actually be because tattoos are more socially acceptable in our society than they used to be. So we personally think no tattoos are not addictive there just cool!
David Beckham Head tattoo!
It seems David Beckham marks every life stage with a tattoo: a name for each of his four children, a rose for his 10 year anniversary with Vicky, and now a solar system to the head to mark... erm, turning 43 this week?
At a charity event in Macau, the former England captain debuted his brand new ink - another significant piece to a 40-deep tattoo collection.
Revealed by a classic short back and sides, galactic motif is relatively discreet - for an above the neck tattoo, anyway.And if he has to cover it up for any reason - a job interview, for example - he can just grow his curtains back. Sorted.
