"I'm an avid collector and appreciator of tattoos, so I tend to run into news that revolves around that culture quite often. That's how I came to know about Billy Gibby -- also known as Billy the Human Billboard -- an amateur boxer out of Alaska who is living his dream of being a fighter and paying the bills by selling spots on his body for permanent tattoos featuring the logos of corporate sponsors.
As with everyone else who encounters Billy the Human Billboard for the first time, the thoughts that went through my head were "[vulgar expletive], what is he thinking?" followed by a quick feeling that there's no way this could be for real, followed by the realization that it had to be real. It's just too weird not to be."
