DEVIL MAY CARE: Columbian Tattoo Convention Freaks
The following article appeared in the Sun on July 15th
Tattoo Convention showcases the weird and the wonderful as freaks, vampires and
beautiful women descend on Medellin
The three day event celebrates the
weird and the wonderful
By Emma Gritt
THERE'S nothing like a tattoo
convention to bring the local freaks out of the shadows - and Colombia's Expo
Tattoo Fair was no exception.
The event - which is in its eighth
year - attracted plenty of colourful characters, including performance artist
Jacob Angel, who made a rather unnerving appearance yesterday.
Jacob, who performs under the stage
name The Angel of Death, made quite an impression at the event in Medellin.
Striding around the expo wearing
little more than a pair of leather wings, a bondage harness and some
height-boosting cloven hoof shoes, he really did look like he had come from
With his body painted white, and with
the addition of some black and white corpse-paint inspired veins running across
his bald head and upper body, he could have passed as a Cenobite from Clive
Barker's Hellraiser series, or a member of a little-known Norwegian black metal
Last year, he performed at the expo,
and gave fans a freaky show involving him being suspended on chains attached to
hooks that pierced through the skin on his back.
His reputation has even seen him
appear on national TV as a "real Colombian vampire."
While his presence was sure to have
excited convention-goers, he wasn't the only person there with an extreme look.
Carlos Dehaquiz showed off some painful and
strange looking bulbous lumps on his forehead, which matched small horns he had
on each of his temples.
The 'horns' - made from pieces of
medically safe plastic surgically inserted beneath the skin - were tattooed
around for extra effect.
However, it was Carlos' tattooed
EYEBALLS that really made him look demonic.
With the chocolate brown hue of his
iris barely noticeable against the black of his eyes, he looked like he had
been possessed, or had no eyeballs at all.
