Rapper Dan Sur has implanted gold chains to his head to become the first man to have ‘minted’ his hair. He says the chains are held by hooks that have been surgically implanted into his skull.
Dan Sur is a big fan of dramatic body modification and has become the first man to mint his hair.
After surgically implanting gold and diamond chains into his head, he said,
“I have it as a hook that is implanted in my head, and that hook has hooks, and they are all hooked in my skull, under my skin.”
The 23-year-old Mexican artist showed off his new look after replacing his natural brown hair with gold chains and a new set of diamond-encrusted teeth.
He also calls himself a pioneer of this intense sort of modification and says, “This is my hair. Golden hair. The first rapper to have gold hair implanted in human history.”
He has since sported the gold hair seemingly without complications which makes us wonder whether this type of body modification is sustainable or upkeep to be considered.
It brings to light the question of how his hair follicles would react if the hair were to still grow amid the gold chain and whether that would be a hindrance.
He has also responded to fan comments asking how he brushes his teeth.
People however were still concerned about the potential for injury. Some thought that perhaps this was not the best idea even if the rapper could have afforded it.
