Art that adorns the flesh…

Know anyone who has a portrait of you tattooed on their body?  I don’t, but depending on who the person is that has your mug on their flesh, I’d imagine that it can all be pretty flattering.  Why not, right?  Okay, now what if someone had two portraits of you tattooed on their body?  How about three, or four?  What if someone had five portraits of you?  Even if you happen to know the person, at this point it would sort of be getting kind of awkward, wouldn’t it?

That’s why I can’t imagine how it would feel to know that a complete stranger has 82 portraits of you tattooed on to them, and will continue to get more.  I think it would scare the hell out of me.  Well, I certainly don’t think that Miljenko Parserisas Bukovic, of Valparaiso city, Mexico is trying to scare Julia Roberts, but the 56-year-old newspaper vendor might want to consider that what he’s doing is just a teeny bit freaky.

After seeing the Julia Roberts film Erin Brokovich, Bukovic became well, obsessed with the Hollywood actress.  So obsessed in fact, that to date he has spent over a million Mexican pesos ($83,469 USD) on 82 tattoos of Julia Roberts.  Yikes.

‘The Roberts fanatic has said that he has plans to get more faces inked on his chest, back and arms.

As long as he has the space on his body and the money, his tattoo tribute will continue.’

Normally I would just say hey, if it makes him happy then good for him.  It’s just that this time around, with something of this nature I can’t help but feel that what he’s doing would considerably freak the shit out of Julia Roberts.  I know that it’s freaking the shit out of me.  The whole thing has kind of floated away from the concept of a tribute and landed in the murky seas of stalkerhood.  I’d wish Bukovic good luck with his hobby, except that I don’t want to because the whole thing is unsettling.
