People will do weird things in the name of art. The latest? Australian artist and expressionist Illma Gore, plans to cover her entire body, from the neck down, with whatever your heart desires, for an art exhibition in Los Angeles.

Calling it a ‘social experiment’, for $10 you can have your name or a few words inked onto her skin. If that’s not enough, dropping $100 will get you a small picture on the skin of Gore.

“I think the tattoo on my forehead says it best ‘Life is art’. There is something absurd & beautiful about having an accumulation of absolute strangers names draped over my pale goth skin, even if half of them are ‘Penis Butt’,” says Gore, on her GoFundMe page.

So far she has exceeded her initial $6000 goal by over $400 in just three days, with over 250 pledging to the cause.

If you’d like to contribute yourself, you can do so via Illma’s GoFundMe page.
