George Kosmetatos is a body piercer from Athens who openly admits his love for changing up his looks.

Not one to shy away from tattooing any part of his body, George noticeably has the word "freak" inked across his forehead along with other face tattoos, gauges, and numerous facial piercings. Additionally, he's dabbled in the art of eye-catching subdermal implants.

In an interview with The Outsiders on YouTube, George admitted, "I had [subdermal] horns [implanted], but I had problems with the police – they were giving me fines because I couldn’t wear a bike helmet."

Apparently, his since-removed subdermal horns impacted his ability to wear a helmet, forcing him to take them out or risk paying hefty fines from local police – or worse. "I miss them," George said. "And some time, I will put them back."

As for his tattoo dreams of the future, the professional piercer outlined his plans to have his eyeballs tattooed black, as well as getting subdermal horns that cover his head from front to back.

"I’d like to get silicon horns that go under the skin," he said. "I will put four to five on one side and four to five on the other side like a double [mohawk]. I’d like metallic horns but it’s still a long-term goal."

Tattoo and body modification fan silences his haters

Though George admitted that the haters used to irk him, the negative comments no longer phase him: "I even have fun with bullies bullying, negativity, swearing. I enjoy it and laugh and joke about it."

For those wondering if George regrets any of the tattoos in his expansive collection, the answer is unequivocally no.

"I haven’t regretted anything because when you are doing a project like this it’s not something you regret," he stated. "For ideological reasons I would never do laser, because I strongly believe that my job has nothing to do with lasers."

As for his thoughts on other people's opinions about his looks, George quipped, "I didn’t wake up one day and say 'I will tattoo my face to impress random people.'"

"I did it because I like it. Most people who don’t even have one tattoo cannot understand this," he concluded, and we couldn't agree more!
