HP – Five years ago, Gordon, a 58-year-old office administrator in London decided to get as much of his body tattooed as possible, according to Barcroft TV. He’s been subjected to so much gawking in public that he’s interested in advocating for other misfits. “I would like to be a spokesperson for anyone suffering any persecution of any type for being body modified or having a different point of view then the norm,” he told HuffPost by email. The saga started in his teens, when Gordon first got a lot of tattoos, but he’s spent more than $25,000 to have the tats removed so he could get a respectable office job, according to the Metro. Five years ago, Gordon decided he wanted to re-ink those tats and get a few more to boot. He blames his fixation on obsessive-compulsive disorder, which he was diagnosed with 13 years ago. “OCD has completely ruled my life. I’m very obsessional,” he said. “Once I get started on something I just get carried away. A lot of people look at me aggressively. They look almost saddened and angry but I don’t understand why – it’s me who’s looking like this, not them. “But I love the attention. I love being different and I love showing people that it is okay to be different.” Gordon’s wife, Lisa, 43, says she married her husband for love 13 years ago, but admits she never thought the phrase “for better or worse” applied to extreme facial tattoos. “I never would have married him if he looked like this when I met him,” she said, according to Orange News. “I feel embarrassed when we are out and everyone stares. But he’s a good husband and a good father and I persevere.” Despite his wife’s objections, Gordon is planning to get even more ink, including a giant tattoo that spans the whole of his back. He admits his look makes him stick out in the staid office environment so he’s hoping his outrageous look will get him cast in TV and movie roles. “I’ve had them done now so I may as well try and make them work for me,” he told Barcroft TV.

Well what can you really say? Some people have to do things in even numbers, some people have to wash their hands nonstop, and some people have to get their bodies covered in tattoos. Just the luck of the draw, and he got the short stick. What sucks though is the tattoos he got 13 years ago that he got removed for nothing. You can take the tattoo off the guy but you can’t take the guy’s insane tattoo obsession off the face. Classic proverb.

And how about his wife huh? Not beating around the bush. What’s there to be embarrassed about? Guys rocks the look. She should be dripping like she just got out of the wave pool, not ashamed to be seen with him. He should be divorcing her ass so quick and upgrading. Smokes will line up to bang his tattooed face off. It’s how the world works.

Like come on. This guy:
