fleshy coin purse is sending shivers down the spine of the internet

japanese DJ and artist shishido mazafaka — aka doooo — is sending shivers down the spine of the internet with his hyper-realistic body artwork that doubles as a coin purse. the flesh-like pouch mimics the face and mouth of a human man, and can be pulled open or closed to reveal a small space to deposit and store coins. a video of doooo pulling the clutch ajar uncovers a shining set of super-realistic teeth hiding inside.

the fleshy coin purse isn’t doooo’s first foray into fleshy functional objects. previously, the artist covered his DJ soundboard in a material mimicking human skin, and wrapped an iPhone case and portable charger in the tissue-like substance.

 

in other body art news, last year publicist simon huck and his storytelling brand society of spectacle questioned if the future of fashion could be skin-deep — literally — through a capsule collection of biological heels and bejeweled neck barnacles.
