NSFW: This Teen Had His Nipples And Belly Button Removed And Is Selling Them As Art

18-year-old Karim Boumjimar is a London-based artist who has had his nipples and belly button surgically removed. He shared onto Instagram, photos of his bare, nipple-free chest and also his nipples which he’s made into earrings. Dazed touched base with the artist to ask the big question  – why?

“I wanted to alter my body. You know the painting Mona Lisa? Well, she has no eyebrows or eyelashes. It’s really interesting how da Vinci meticulously paid attention to every single detail but chose not to give her eyebrows or the eyelashes. And then it came to me – I could do the same thing with my body. We are all born with the same anatomy, and we all have the basic human structure, I just think that it’s really interesting how we all absorb that and play with the idea of how our bodies should look, we are all given the same materials (our bodies) and decide whether we want to alter or modify what we are given. Our bodies are our representations of how we are as humans. It’s like when you are in a lesson, and people start off with same objects but each one of them makes something different. They started off with the same object at the beginning but at the end, everyone has a different outcome, so as humans we all have the same anatomy and I decided to do what I want with mine.”

Talking about how he got this done, Boumjimar told Dazed,  “I don’t know, it wasn’t really done legally, I mean it was legal, but not so legal. They just gave me so many drugs and at the end they gave me my nipples.”
