Sylvain Helaine, 33, has worked as a school teacher in the UK for the past decade. He’s also a former martial arts coach, model, and aspiring comedian.
Sylvain also teaches people not to judge a book by its cover… or in his case, a person by his tattoos.
For the past six years — ever since Sylvain got his first tattoo in his late twenties — Sylvain has been on a journey through body modification that has taken on a life of its own.
Today, Sylvain is covered head-to-toe in tattoos — even on his gums!
At first, Sylvain says his outward appearance can make parents and fellow teachers skeptical or uncomfortable.
And though he says he has spent over $45,000 on all the ink, he has no plans of stopping.
“I will keep covering myself layer after layer, ending up black,” he told Barcroft TV. “Not necessarily because I want to but because the more you cover the darker you get.”
Meet Sylvain in the clip below and see his stunning transformation.
