A REAL BAD ASS: THE TATTOOED SANTA

For the past 15 years, Vitor Martins has been dressing up as Santa Claus but it’s what under the cheerful red suit that has most people amazed – and others appaled. Beneath the Holiday fit of this 59 year old man, is a body suit of tattoos which take up about 95 percent of his body. While many are Christmas related, there are still those who are opposed.

Read into it: Nowadays with Google, there’s no reason to ever misspell anything. 
 

According to Vitor, “Some people seek me out to find out who this ‘tattooed Santa’ is. While others find out (I have tattoos) and all of a sudden they don’t want to work with me, and look for another Santa. It depends a lot on the individual.”
