I Got Pretty Close


We’ve featured this particular beefcake before, and I mistakenly identified him as having been carved out of granite by Jesus. This was false, and I apologize for this mischaracterization. In fact, he was installed at the bottom of the sea over 60,000 years ago, by aliens, and occasionally surfaces to assert his dominance over killer whales and giant squid and underwater volcanoes and the like. He is literally standing in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in this picture, on top of a shark that had been alive since the Cretaceous period, which he killed just by looking at it. When asked for comment, he kindly shooed us away, as his mouth was full of Loch Ness Monster meat and he didn’t want to be rude.

  1. Best intro to date! lol mouth full of lockness monster! i would have guessed killer whale penis but hey tomato thomato…

  2. Actually it looks like he’s kneeling. You can see his right heel just under the water. :P Plus, wouldn’t it be difficult to keep your balance standing with legs that far apart in the current? /nitpick

  3. blaaaargh!!!!! he is the kracken, risen from the sea!!!
    sexy, but a kracken nonetheless.
    yar.

  4. i think it’s pretty obvious he’s standing on a prehistoric shark in the middle of the ocean.
    and seriously, you’re insulting? wow. good job guys.

    i think he’s ridiculously amazing looking, but i will say, not my type?
    that looks like a whole lot of hard work there.

  5. I definitely thought this was Buck Angel at first glance, too.. those shadows are mysterious

  6. RE Photoshopping the image: The image is as it was sent to us. The “shadow” you see on his shoulder is as a result of either the photographer or the model being a little heavy with the Burn Tool in photoshop. i have seen other images of this fellow and i can assure you that he him self is not Photoshopped and really is that much of a hunking hulk of hulk of man.

  7. p.s.

    people really suck for hating on his tattoos. I’m not the biggest fan of tribal either but as long as it’s well done and has good lines, what does it matter. He also has worked really hard (obviously) at those guns (another body modification) and I think that it’s bull shit for calling him ugly. It’s straight up mod-snobbery. ’nuff said.

  8. He’s terrifying, his arms are bigger than my waist.

    No opinion on his tattoo though, if he likes it, it’s chill, but the body intimidates me.

  9. It looks like the burn tool might have been used to make the tattoos stand out against his flesh more. The rest of the picture doesn’t appear ‘shopped to me, just a flash bulb used against existing natural lighting which always makes photographs look a tad strange.

    That said, the net effect is of dark energy emanating from his arm muscles. :O

  10. “It’s straight up mod-snobbery. ’nuff said.” LMMFAO TOO funny…

    But yeah… pretty pretty….not a huge fan of bulky men and the tattoo is painfully cliche.. but it’s still fun to look at and enjoyably aesthetic.

    As for the photoshopping… lighten up…. don’t tell me you honestly believe there isn’t some airbrushing on some of the incredibly beautiful women posted on here too?

  11. It’s not photoshop at all. It’s time and space bending around those hulking friggin’ muscles. Just when I was getting over feeling inadequate of seeing him the last time, you have to show him off again. Damn you, BME!

    But I think this is a better picture for him. And it’s not because he can pound me into the ground like a nail with his fist.

  12. .. Oh yeah. Another thing. We didn’t get to see the other arm last time around, iirc, nice to see a bit more work on him and that he preserves some of his older tattoos.

  13. shes.a.star. – Yeah, and all the other people who post pictures of themselves and their mods aren’t? You don’t know the guy at all, just shut your trap.

    The photo looks cool although I liked the last one more. I have huge respect for him for working probably years upon years to achieve a body like that (and what are a few moments of pain and maybe few months of healing a piercing compared to that?), although I hope he hasn’t endangered his health by taking steroids or anything.

  14. so it’s fine to get interesting tattoos and piercings (thanks to someone else’s hard work and discipline, I might add) in order to enhance and decorate your body, but when it comes to working your actual ass off like crazy and having what must be a fuckload of self-discipline to enhance your body, you’re a self-absorbed douchebag?

    come on, that’s like the worst kind of hypocrisy right there. step it up, modbloggers.

  15. what the fuck are you looking at….. your nipple?..
    or your fantasizing about your reflection in the water….

  16. I don’t even know what to say……….you look kinnda silly,……..GET TO THA CHOPPA!!!!! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  19. he looks like a fun guy to hang around with.
    y’know. eating a whole cow as opposed to a steak and what not.
    He looks like he might actually be able to literally crush me to death just with his hand.
