Donnie Snider, a former forklift driver in Canada, says that he made the decision to tattoo himself head to toe blue after years of feeling trapped by conformity and a “lack of confidence.” “I was extremely miserable,” he said. “I decided to quit hiding, break myself out of stagnation and remake my life.”
It took three years to complete the transformation and it all started when he asked his sister to ink a portion of his leg and foot with a bright turquoise hue. He really loves the way it looks and decided that he was going to keep going with it.
Now, he shares his adventures as a jewelry-maker living in a “clapped-out transit bus” on his Instagram account.
