Among all the excitement and ‘literal’ buzzing of the tattoo needle guns during the first ever San Pedro Belize International Tattoo Expo, one man stood out in the crowd for obvious reasons. Victer Max is tattooed from head to toe, has a slit tongue, modified ears, sharpened teeth, pierced all over, has silicone implants on his arms and boasts a couple horns!
Yup! He is a bit out of the ordinary, maybe normal in some circles, but he was the main attraction at the international tattoo expo that took place over the weekend in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. Cameras flashed his direction as he made his way through the crowded venue as people were excited to meet him, see his tattoo-covered body and touch his implanted horns.
In his Freak Show he breathes fire, eats glass and breaks light bulbs on his body, but his most impressive act is being levitated 15 feet in the air on hooks that pierced eight points of his body. The crowd watched in awe as Victer channeled the pain of hooks inserted on his back, legs and ankles and was elevated by pulley. He ‘flew’ in the air like superman, swinging above the crowd to the amazement of everybody.
It was an impressive show that helped make the first ever tattoo expo a major success in Belize. More coverage of the Expo coming up on iTravel Belize.
