A man has claimed that his tattoos and body modifications — which have cost over $200,000 (£160,000) — have helped enhance his love life.
Jeremy Schofield — who also goes by Remy — has been modifying himself with ink and non-surgical procedures for the last 15 years.
The tattoo artist from Canada claimed that his appearance has never stood in the way of him securing a date and that he's never been single.

He told NeedToKnow.co.uk: "Tattoos and piercings have only enhanced my love life — I’ve basically never been single."
He added that before marrying his wife Sarah — who he married four years ago and has been together with for seven — he had other long-term relationships as well.
Remy believes that no one has spent as much time as he has on getting tattooed, referring to his “body suit” ink, which has seen him cover his entire body.
He explained: "I have had most of my body tattooed between 10-25 times, and I believe strongly that I have been tattooed for longer than anyone who’s ever lived, this includes re-creating my whole body multiple times over.
"Most people believe I have had between three to five bodysuits, but really most of me has been tattooed many more times than that.

"Most of the work I am doing currently has widely been called impossible by 'experts' and I’m proving them wrong every day."
In addition to his tattoos, the dad-of-one has also pierced his body 136 times and has a split tongue, saying he never plans on stopping modifying his body.
He added: "For me, body modification is a creative outlet, and hobby or passion project.
"I often think of my body like an old man that spends his free time working on his car in the shed, it’s never meant to be finished — the point is the project itself, not the product.
"Currently I’ve been tattooed between 1,500-1,600 hours, but that number is increasing still steadily all the time.
"Not only do I have future plans for tattoos, I never truly plan to be finished working on my art, as far as I’m concerned."
