Dennis Avner is one of those people who have changed their body to the extreme. He was born in 1958 in Michigan. Dennis began to tattoo his body in the 1980s because of his affinity for tigers.

The first artist to paint Avner was Larry Hanks. But most of Avner’s body changes were made by Arizona artist Steve Haworth.
Avner suffered more than 14 changes. These include subdermal facial implants, which have changed the shape of the eyebrows, forehead and root of the nose.
Changes have been made to flatten the nose with septum relieving and silicone injections into the lips, cheeks and chin. He broke up his lip, stuffed his teeth, and put on a dental crown.
By surgical means, he gave a sharp shape to his ears and elongated his ear lobes. Avner has also installed transdermal implants on his forehead to facilitate wearing mustaches.
He used to wear green contact lenses with split iris and a robotic queue. On November 5, 2012, Dennis died alone in his garage.
