Daniel Mauermann‘s “Cuba People” photoset on Flickr includes many striking images, but none more striking than this. As Daniel explains in an e-mail:
The pierced guy is a poor handicapped who once decided to make good money putting as much needles in his head as possible. Every day he is standing in Calle Obispo, the main tourist street in Havana, and claims one dollar per photo. He is quite famous – guess why. I don't know his name.
My sister asks: “How does he sleep?”
Oh my GOD!!!
How does he live???
How does his ears not like start to hang b/c he has so much weight on them with all the earings. It is an easy way to make money but VERY painful!!
one word. ew. how does he like eat? and i bet he has never been in a relationship. I mean, how would you kiss?
