Artist puts his cut off nipples and bellybutton up for sale online
An artist is selling his pierced nipples and bellybutton online for £10,000 after having them surgically removed.
Karim Boumjimar posted the items for sale on his Instagram and Twitter account after having the body parts removed after he was inspired by the Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci - which shows her without eyelashes and eyebrows.
The 18-year-old from London, said: "It came to me - I could do the same thing with my body. As humans we all have the same anatomy and I decided to do what I want with mine."
He wrote on Twitter: "I got rid of my nipples and I'm selling them. My belly button necklace is coming soon :-)"
And to further support that the items were once attached to his body, he uploaded a picture of his bare chest and stomach which showed sceptics those features were missing.
On Instagram he priced his nipples at £10,000 and added: "No time wasters."
According to Dazed, Karim wants to get rid of the body parts because he "doesn't want to get attached to them".
