London, Oct 23 (ANI): A man in the US, who has been dubbed as the Human Chequerboard for the many tattoos he sports on his body, has now even tattooed his eyes, making one green and one blue.

Matt Gone, 40, who boasts that 98 percent of his body is covered in tattoos, was warned by doctors that he could pick up a serious infection or even go blind from the extreme stunt.

"I had to take the risk. I patch-tested it and was successful. I've done that a lot of times before. I'm not crazy. I'm trained," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

"I have a lot of experience. I picked different colours for my eyes because I like mutations as I have birth defects," he added.

Gone, of Portland, Oregon, says he began tattooing his body 20 years ago to disguise physical deformities. (ANI)
