While I don't believe having your face tattooed is actually a prerequisite for having the nickname "Mad Dog", I assume it can't hurt your odds of keeping the nickname for years to come.

The 27-year-old pictured here is "Mad Dog" Deon and yes, that is a real tattoo of a skull covering his face. That is not Sharpie you see there but actual ink that has been permanently etched into his skin.


Father of several children, Deon appeared with his girlfriend on a U.K. talk show, "The Jeremy Kyle Show", in a segment titled, "How could my boyfriend destroy his own face?"

The video below shows "Mad Dog" defending his facial art.
