One Instagram user and aspiring model named Vin Los, who hails from Canada, has apparently decided that his greatest chance at gaining a modeling contract is by making himself stand out.
How is he doing that? Well, by getting tattoos all over his body…including on his head and face!
Los (24), who currently works at a grocery store, tells Vice that he got his first tattoo (the Le Coq Sportif logo) when he was “about 16 or 17 years old,” but nowadays, he says he stays away from images and sticks to words that he thinks have a message.
Some of those words include ‘Fame’ across his forehead, ‘Guilty’ in between his eyebrows, ‘Scream My Name’ on his right cheek and ‘World’ on his throat.
“It may sound like I have bad values or something, but my tattoos aren’t just for me,” Los explains to Vice. “I want to be an image for people to look at, something that has an impact. Everybody who sees me is bound to ask questions: ‘Why fame? What’s his life like?’”
So how does Vin Los choose the words that he will tattoo on his body? Well, through YouTube, of course!
“It’s very superficial,” he explains. “I’ll go on YouTube and listen to all the big hits and I’ll just take words from these songs. For example, ‘Top of the World’ is from the song by The Cataracs, but it’s also what I want. I want to rule the world.”
As of now, Vin, who has over 20 tattoos on his face alone, is hoping to break into the entertainment industry and says that he hopes to “create celebrities one day,” as well as his own major media outlet.
Sadly, Vin Los says that he has yet to gain a modeling contract, despite doing a lot of press, and has stopped speaking to his parents because they disapprove of his image.
