Caracas, Venezuela – How far would you go to look like your favorite childhood comic book hero or villain?

Most people would just put on a costume and face paint, but for married father Henry Damon, 37, that wasn’t enough.

According to, Damon has decided to go to extreme measures to look like his favorite childhood villain Red Skull.

Red Skull was a Nazi agent to his arch enemy, Marvel hero Captain America.

Damon met med-school drop out Emilio Gonzales, who has been trained in extreme body surgery and tattooing, and had him run several physical and psychological tests to make sure his body could with stand the procedure.

Damon started  the process by  getting his eyeballs tattooed black, then followed by getting sub-dermal implants in his forehead and eyebrows.

The next extreme step was Damon surgically getting half of his nose removed.

Gonazales says Damon plans on getting silicone implants in his cheeks, cheekbones and chin and finally finishing the process by tattooing his entire face red.
