Remy reveals how he finances his tattoo transformation

According to the tattoo enthusiast, who recently had his eyelids tattooed as part of his ongoing transformation, people can't get as many tattoos and body mods as he has without a solid income.

"You can't look like I do without a good-paying job," he explained to his Instagram subs. "You can't look like I do without a good amount of money, you can't look like I do without an incredibly disciplined lifestyle."

"You just can't – go ahead and try! These things cost a [lot] of money and you're not getting there if you don't have a job that pays you pretty well."

Welfare won't pay enough for tattoos like Remy's

Remy's video was in response to many of his followers accusing him of having very little money and living off of government welfare. After hearing the criticism, he set forth to prove them wrong.

"It's so funny to me when people assume I don't have a job, or I am on welfare or all of that f***ing horses**t," he said.
