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.
