You Can Get It If You Really Want


Tiger man wants fur graft
A San Diego computer programmer who has spent £100,000 on tattoos and plastic surgery to turn himself into a “tiger” wants a fur graft.

Dennis Smith is tattooed from head to toe with orange and black stripes and his teeth have been filed to needle point.

His fingernails have been crafted into sharp talons while his hands have tattooed markings like a tiger’s paws. He says he feels like a tiger.

The short back-and-sides he sported at the University Of California has been replaced with a long orange mane. He has also swapped his glasses for green contact lenses.

He has also had latex whiskers implanted and surgery to his lips so he has a permanent snarl.

He now wants a surgeon to graft tiger fur on to his skin, like a perma-wig.

Mr Smith, who has changed his name by deed poll to Cat Man, said: “I have a collection of old tiger pelts from the days of hunting. I want these grafted on to me. It will cost another $100,000 but will be worth it.

“When I have the coat of a tiger, I feel I will have reached my goal in life.”
