Bizarre Photos | Anorexic Keira Knightley


Bizarre Photos

Keira Knightley has been accused of being anorexic by the media, along with other actresses, and actually fought and won a settlement in a lawsuit which implied her slender body may have been the cause of a teenage girl who died from anorexia.

Anyway, a contest was conducted a while back that had contestants photoshop actresses and make them look anorexic, to see what they would look like if they were.

Of course with all the negative publicity around Keira Knightley being anorexic, many images and photos came in showing her that way. Here are a couple of them which look very weird, so say the least.

Bizarre Tattoos | The Grim Reaper


Bizarre Tattoos

Now we have the Grim Reaper starring in his own tattoo, with his harvested souls behind him looking to see who's next in line.

Also when you look down his robe, near the bottom you see more souls that aren't as easy to pick out. It's like he's in a soul harvesting mode and he's getting a whole bunch at once.

But as far as the tattoo goes, this is really well done, as many Grim Reaper tattoos surprisingly are. As an overall group, they're among the best I've seen; as far as each individual tattoo and its quality.

See a nice batch of Grim Reaper tattoos here.

Bizarre Behavior | Man Rollerskating Down Roller Coaster



Bizarre Behavior and Action

Now this is a first for me, and looking at this guy roller skating down a roller coaster makes me a little queasy.

But if you've got the stomach for it, this would be a blast, and I bet the speeds he attains are extraordinary.

No matter, you won't find me following in his footsteps, but it would be a lot of fun to watch, as he would be moving in a way that would be really entertaining to see.

Tattoos | Weird Skull Neck Tattoo



Tattoos

This skull tattoo on the neck is one of the more stranger I've come across, and it really is done very good, if you can think of it in that way.

My first thought was how painful that sensitive area had to be to get that tattoo.

As far as the tattoo itself, my favorite part is the elongated look below the teeth of the skull, which make it look like his neck is stretching out. Pretty effective.

I do wonder what this looks like when he holds his neck down.

Tattoos | Katy Perry's Newest Tattoo



Tattoos

Katy Perry showed off her latest tattoo recently, and surprisingly, it is very tame, being a strawberry with a smiley face.

While Katy likes to try to look outrageous at times, it shows concerning permanent ink, her better judgement prevailed, and she did something she could live with over a long period of time.

I wonder if Katy will do as other celebrity females have done and add a tattoo at intervals in order to keep the spotlight on her?

Bizarre Art | Macabre Pin-up Girls


Bizarre Art

Rue Morgue's graphic designer Justin Erickson has created horror pin-up collection that is very macabre and dark, while trying to retain something of beauty in the midst of the ghoulish presentation.

Rue Morgue, for those no familiar with it, is a horror magazine with a rabid fan base of core followers.



Erickson's work almost always combines a sense of vintage mixed with monsters to create some interesting combinations.

As you can see from these photos and video, he is anything but conventional.

Weird Behavior | Psycho Cyborgs



Bizarre Behavior

The Psycho Cyborgs, with Samppa Von Cyborg is one of the most bizarre group of people and entertainers I've ever seen. They take things to the absolute limit in their so-called performance, and everything you see is done.

Included with their act are electric currents, needles, screw and hooks, among other things, and it's as weird and strange as it sounds, as you can see from the photos, which are tame in comparison to some of the others you can see here.

Evidently the goal of the group is to recreate the feel of a brutal slasher film, giving it a look or reality to the audience.

People have quit the troupe because of the actual pain needed to endure their hard core tricks.

Bizarre Tattoos | Tattoo Wedding Rings


Bizarre Tattoos

I was surprised when looking around at wedding ring tattoos at how many there are out there. My thought was I would find a few, but the number of them was amazing.

Anyway, here's a couple of them that look pretty good, although the time people spend together seems to be less and less, and the general permanency of a tattoo doesn't seem to go with that idea.

But you can get rid of a tattoo of course, although it's not cheap, and the area of the finger can be a somewhat painful and sensitive spot to be tattooed in, or to have it removed.

It seems like the people getting these have faith in lasting a long time, and that's a good thing.

Bizarre Celebrations | Zombie Wedding


Bizarre Celebrations

This zombie wedding celebration is just plain strange, but it is interesting.

I like all the bridesmaids and best man and the others entering into the zombie spirit and playing their parts as well.

I wonder what inspires a morbid wedding of this sort? You would think the opposite of death would be the theme, but you never know when it comes to what makes people tick.

Evidently this couple are fans of zombie stories and themes, or they're just waaay out there. Either way, they definitely got attention from their zombie nuptials.

Bizarre Modern Toilet Restaurant

Bizarre Restaurants




I know some of you have probably seen the photos of the Modern Toilet restaurant in
Taiwan, but it's always funny to see it and how they present their food.

The seating involves sitting on a toilet-shaped seat, and bowls for food come in the form of urinals.

You can picture that: could I have some ice cream in my urinal please? Coming right up. Would you like that in banana color? Hehe.

Richard Michaud Illustration Tribute to Ending of Resident Evil



Art Trends - Video Game Art

Now that the Resident Evil video game franchise is evidently coming to its end, illustrator and artist Richard Michaud put together a collection of images to pay tribute to the popular video gaming and film franchise.

Probably my favorite character in the series - Jill Valentine - is getting some great pics of her, and Sheva and Chris Redfield are also part of the Resident Evil art collection.

But I think we all know that if a new film came out that had a new twist to it, right behind it would be the next Resident Evil video game. But until and unless that happens, it looks like for now we won't be seeing any more new games in the franchise again.



As far as the illustrations, they are very nicely done and look great.

Extreme Tattoos | Woman with Tiger Stripe Tattoos



Extreme Tattoos

This is an amazing tattoo set on this woman, as she's covered from head to toe (including her face) with tiger stripes.

I have seen people with medical conditions do stuff like this with different tattoo designs, but this woman actually looks like she's attractive, and had no need to do it other than her own personal reasons.

Odd, but obviously she must have financial means to look like this, otherwise she wouldn't have been able to do it.

I would like to hear her story some time.

Extreme Tattoos | Horror Tattoos from Major Films


Extreme Tattoos

Here's an interesting sleeve tattoo of some of the more notorious film horror stars, and they're done very well by the tattoo artist.

I wish I could have seen several different views of the tattoos, as they each look like they're really cool.

But as you can see from the photo, Chuck looks very realisitic, and the tattoo designer and artists captured the evil connected to him.

Tattoos of Carey Hart


Tattoos

Not too long ago Carey Hart was photographed at his legendary Hart and Huntington Tattoo Company, where it made its way on the web, showing all the great body art on his chest and arms.

I like that car with the Hart license plate on his stomach. Very cool.

The viva Las Vegas is also nice at the bottom of his stomach, where his tattoo is located within the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in sin city.

Body Suspension in Forest


Extreme Forest Suspension

Hey, I thought when you asked if I wanted to hang around with you it meant something a little different than like a piece of meat in a cooler.

Yet some choose to take part of their summer and go to the forest to hang from the trees in what is touted as a more 'spiritual' experience.

Enough with this spiritual experience hype; you're hanging from hooks ripped through you skin, so what type of spiritual you talking about.

Just admit you're doing it to get attention and the shock factor, don't hide behind the term spiritual to justify your behavior. Geesh.

This lady being suspended claims "She’s about to leave the UK to go travelling for a long time, and wanted to be suspended to clear her head of worries about the trip and feel brave enough to fully embrace the adventure."

How about relaxing with soft music in the background next time, that would seem to make more sense.

Twisting Alice in Wonderland



Weird Photos

Alice in Wonderland seems to be the focus of a lot of artists and photographers who like to take the story and twist it to their interpretation or liking.

That's what has happened with the latest foray into this field, as Marcela Abal Acosta has taken Alice and turned her into a goth looking character who doesn't look at all too friendly.

This is a creative look for Alice, but this seems to be getting repetitious, and creative people maybe need some new material to work from.

But I still wonder what it is about Alice in Wonderland that makes the story such a favorite to draw material from.

Bizarre Photos 'Clowning Around'


Bizarre photos from Tim Engle Photo Shoot 'Clowning Around'

The 'Clowing Around' photo collection from Tim Engle maybe gives some insight into why many people are afraid of clowns, as the disturbing photos show eerie, dark and bloody experiences.

While the photo shoot was done in a way to display the story good, looking like they were in a abandoned institution of some sort, the material itself is freaky and creepy, and makes you wonder what it was Engle is attempting to say through them, other than the shock value.

Tim Engle has pushed the envelope before, and you can see more from the Clowning Around photo shoot here, along with other photo galleries.

Horror Gothic Zombie Photos



Horror Gothic Fashion Photo Shoot

Here are some pretty interesting and dark photos from a fashion shoot which was evidently made for horror fans.

It displays a woman who seems to be battling zombies and/or the undead for herself and her soul.

The pale skin cover of the male zombie models is very effective and the look of the woman under attack is fantastic as well.

This was done by fashion photographer Jean-Fran├žois Campos for Flair Magazine near the end of 2008.

Appropriately the photo spread was named 'Gotica.' For more goth fashion zombie photos go here.

No Eyebrow Celebrities



With the recession in full swing, fashion looks for something unique not related to the clothing or accessories itself in order to make a statement, and this year one of the bizarre fashion trends is to go with the no eyebrow look.

But as you can see from the photos here, that's a trend that's not going to last long.

The top photo includes what Angelina Jolie would look like if she was without eyebrows, and the bottom photo is of Catherine Zeta Jones if she went without her eye hair.

And the bottom pic is none other than Simon Cowell. So whether you're male or female, it's just not something that works.

No thanks! It think I'll keep my eyebrows. Go to see more celebrities without eyebrows here.

Strange Jedi Trainer Toy


Strange Toy

This new toy is very cool, and can help you mess with the minds of your friends or family when you show them you have accessed the power of the force to move a ping pong ball up a tube with nothing but the power of your mind.

Along with a headset, the Jedi Trainer comes with a tube and ping pong ball you place at the bottom of the tube to move up. It also includes a wireless connection.

The Jedi Trainer will be available sometime in August starting in the UK at play.com.

Dog Peeing Flame Thrower

This is a great video you have to see of a dog peeing like a flame thrower, underscoring the need to get answers to your pet's problems by going to WebVet.com online.

The look of the dog after he pees is hilarious, as he gazes back at his owner with a look of "What just happend?".

Very funny!

Bizarre Demon Corset Tattoo



Bizarre Extreme Tattoos

This tattoo of an alien opening up a corset and looking to come out is really well done. While it's creepy, it's still powerful and sends a few chills down the spine.

The way the corset is being opened, the loosening of the strings closest to the demon's hands and tightening as they are farther up on the back are very realistic and convincing.

I bet quite a few kids looking at this tattoo received a scare or two.

While the artwork is great, where do you go in a social situation and show it? Most places people wouldn't appreciate it too much. Anyway, it's a good tattoo even though the theme is somewhat limiting.

Kim Kardashian as Goth


Goth Trends

Cited as saying on her website, that "Since vampires are all the rage right now, [makeup artist] Troy Jensen and I thought it would be cool to try out a more gothic, almost sinister look! This look was inspired by Prada's fall 2009 runway show and it is so unlike anything I've ever done!"

Now having seen it, I wish I hadn't. Is this a young version of Marilyn Manson? hehe!

Kim Kardashian is going to have to come to grips that she has absolutely no talent in any way, and I don't really think anyone cares that she put on makeup to look like a goth.

I agree with several writers that she should just gracefully fade away. Her 15 minutes of fame are over, she just needs to take the money and enjoy life, without us having to hear about it.

Freya Lingerie's Bowling Alley Photos


Bizarre Fashion Photos

This is a little weird but fun, as the pin-up look of women in lingerie at a retro-looking setting of a bowling alley is pretty cool.

Called the "Let 'em Roll' campaign, the models are featured against backgrounds of bowling shoes, lanes and 40s signage.

They also wear the look from that era with the retro hair styles, makeup and dark lighting we asssociate with the times.

Now about this bottom photo, is that a strike or a score?

Bizarre Photo Collection of Agata Maria Stansz


Bizarre Art

Here's some bizarre and creepy photos from Agata Maria Stansz, who may need to go into therapy.

This strange photo collection included a model decked out in fur, tulle and lace seemingly lying on the floor, in most cases, looking completely dead, while being surrounded with religious icons.

An odd addition to her collection, which you can view here, is the an image where cats suddenly appear out of nowhere and become part of the story. Strange.

Extreme Tattoos | Breast Implants


EXtreme Tattoos

This is a wild one. Who thinks of breast implants and then having a woman inked on your body with them? Somebody does, as that's what this guy did on his calf.

Breast implant part of the tattoo aside, I actually like the hat covering her head and the mysterious covering of her eyes.

I know, you're more interested in the bottom and middle of breast implant tattoo, but the overall effect of it as a whole is pretty cool.

Naughty Trends | Bizarre Fetish Nuns in Latex and Gas Masks


Naughty Trends

Many people love their fetishes, and among some in the fetish community there are those that want nothing but nuns to do their cosplay with.

Add a gas mask, rubber and a gun, and you have a lethal fetish that captures the imaginations of those looking for new thrills.

Some of the latest nun fetishes involve latex or leather uniforms, mixed with in some cases gas masks and the nun holding a gun.

Changing a nun from a virtuous figure to a scandalous parody has always been a part of the underground fetish culture, and they're always thinking of new ways to twist our perceptions.

Freaky Photography of Daikichi Amano


Bizarre Art Trends

The photography of Daikichi Amano has always been freaky, but this one of some type of sensuous licking of frogs by a model is gross, to say the least.

Amano has to be a little sick, as most of his other photos include models in suggestive and grotesque photos with octopi or squid.

As with this photo, he's always stretching the limit and creating very disturbing images.

I'm not sure what his motivation or reasoning is behind it, but Amano's a little unstable in my view.

Tattoos | Armpit Tattoos


Bizarre Tattoos

Now this is a little gross to me: standalone armpit tattoos. Usually you'll see them as part of a tattoo sleeve if they go under the armpit, but standing by themselves - not that great to me.

The thing that makes me wonder about why this is done is who can see your tattoo? You are forced to lift your arms up like this woman does or it does no good. You can't even enjoy the tattoo yourself unless you lift them up and look in a mirror.

A waste of good ink if you ask me, and who wants to look at someone lift their arms up to show you their tattoo?

Hammertime with Darth Vader Stormtroopers

Here's a really funny Hammertime dance featuring Darth Vader and his Stormtrooper buddies moving to the music 'U Can't Touch This. Very cool!

This is following in the footsteps of another Hammertime video where a flashmob invaded several areas of LA in anticipation of M.C. Hammer's new show on A&E.

Now that Darth is looking cool, I'm wondering if he'll do more to entice people to the dark side?

Zombie Elvis Sword Tattoo


Bizarre Tattoos

Now there are all sorts of themes running through this zombie tattoo, the first obviously the zombie evidently just finishing up feeding.

The second is the sword he's carrying on his back, which seemingly was part of acquiring his meal, if he needed it.

But the funny one and easy to miss theme is the Elvis look. See that hair? Who has a caricature of hair like that other than Elvis? But then look at that set of curled up lips and you know this is an zombie killer Elvis.

That's all we need loose, a zombie Elvis carrying a sword feeding on his helpless fans.

Amazing Werewolf Tattoo



Bizarre Tattoos

This is one of the better detailed werewolf tattoos I've seen. The detail is extraordinary, and the popping out or pulsating veins are done really well.

Not only that, but the wolf head is really compelling, and you can almost feel the ferocity of the changing man to a wolf, or is the wolf being changed back to a man?

Either way, it's powerful tattoo, and really a good one.

Zombie Fashion from Ivan Hidalgo


Bizarre Fashion Trends

Nothing other than strange could describe this zombie fashion collection from photographer Ivan Hidalgo, where he displays the undead in a way that you probably have never seen before.

There is definitely a gothic undertone to these photos, and they're not the zombies we're used to looking at in their torn and ragged clothing, but I guess, want to be seen a fashionable even though they're no longer alive.

Pretty creepy but interesting look at zombies from a different perspective. These dead just don't give you the scare you want.

Gothic Environment | 'Batman: Arkham Asylum?'



Bizarre Art Trends

I really like the greenish/yellow colors incorporated into the latest action adventure for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 'Batman: Arkham Asylum?.' If the environment reflects the gaming experience, it will be a good one.

The look hast that gothic feel with iron gates and overgrown shrubs in a dreary but compelling backdrop, which oozes potential. And that moon in the background, How cool is that?

Now the character depicting Batman wasn't as interesting to me, as he had the usual square jawed look you'd expect, and didn't really resonate much. But that will be seen whether it's a negative or positive in the overall game.

Even so, the moonlit lighting and gothic environment gives the type of creepy and interesting look a gamer is looking for, and if it's an indication of the game, it could be good news for us.

Here's a cool look at what you can do with the new Mug Shooter screensaver.
