    I commented to this once already.. wth.

    Creativity is on a downslide. He`s not a bad artist, though, and now that the caption reads differently, more props to it than the first time I saw this.

    That was pretty cool. I like the way he peeled it off at the end - I wasn`t sure what type of paint he was using and wondered about how he would remove it all after he finished.
    Nice paint work ^^

    He probably used latex paint. That paints off easily. And yeah Gh4z, I agree. It had to be difficult painting at such an odd angle.

    Pretty impressive. It must have taken forever to do that in real time. I thought it was very symbolic at the end when he took the dried layers of paint and cut out the silhouettes of his head. It`s as if all of those influences are "in his head" physically.

    I think the sunflower was meant to be representative of Vincent Van Gough.

    Did anybody else notice that his belly button disappeared when he put on the first layer? If he filled it in then he`d have a hell of a time trying to empty it again.

    Watch the whole thing before you comment ;).

    Anyway, that was really good. It made me laugh when he brought out a hairdryer to dry the paint, he must have gotten pretty tired of standing up and drawing on himself.

    For the people who say the things about the objects, and for the people who say he loves hitler;

    "30 different people that influenced my life were painted one on top of another on my torso. I either painted a picture of the person or an object that represents the person.

    To see photos of the work and some brief details about a few check it out at.
    www.philinthecircle.com/influe nce

    Music is by Elephine. Check `em out at www.myspace.com/elephine
    They Rock!

    Many people are asking about Hitler and how he could be an influence. He has had an impact on the entire world and changed how society deals with hate. Obviously he is not a influence in a positive way except for the positive changes that have occured to society since his existence.

    People are also wondering how long it took. I spent 20 hours painting and I had the piece on me for about 30 hours. I slept with it on and it was aweful! "

    that was on his youtube page.

    Interesting skills, I`m sure not everyone could paint on their own bodies like that.
    I just recognized a few of the people he painted... Hitler, Mel Gibson and Stephen Hawkings for sure, and one of them was the Mythbusters guy?

    I was wondering how would he remove that thick, thick layer of paint off his body. In the end I liked how he did.

    Still, kinda pointless; I wonder why would he do all that. I guess some get entertainment more easily than others :P

    Hitler influenced the entire world. Remember, it said INFLUENCED, not ROLE MODEL. Besides, do you need to agree with someone to have them influence you?

    Pople should not comment without watching the whole video and reading all of the comments. He probably used latex body paint. You can buy it for like twenty bucks for 16oz. The Hitler thing is no surprise seeing as how Hitler`s influences on people are so far stretched, and some good did come of Hitler, he led to a whole new level of tollerance. By people seeing other peoples in such a bad situation, they realized there`s not much difference from one person to the next. And NO some of them were not images of people, but the REPRESENTED people. Also, for anyone wondering how long it took him to clean it, watch the video, he peels it off at the end.

    and all the people that sit there and whine about how stupoid this are just annoying and most likely jealous because they can`t do anything like it.
    you know hitler can be a cool influence, if you get past the whole mass genocide thing, he was great leader. i mean he did get a hella big amount of people to follow him and his ideas. so yea. dont flip out on something someone does. get over it @__@

    yup, latex paint. pretty much the same paint i used to paint my walls

    and he never said that they all had positive influences on him. maybe hitler had a positive effect in a way, maybe he had a negative effect on his life. maybe his parents were in the holocaust, it could`ve been anything. think before you call him racist.

    "this is what people do nowadays to get attention!?"
    I don`t think it was just a tactic to get attention. It was a work of art. The reason he had to make a video of it is because it was a layered process, and he couldn`t have shown that any other way.

    Do people even read the other comments before they post or is it just me? Every question asked after page one and maybe half way through page two has been answered atleast 5 times.

    I`m glad he finally got that off of his chest.
    Haha puns...

    Oh and Hitler has influenced MANY lives. Most people don`t realise that all influences aren`t good influences.
