Last summer, Augustin “Tin” Rodriguez, 23, was badly burned in an accident. Over 60% of his body was covered in burns. Rodriguez also had several tattoos. One was a cat’s head; another was a pair of shadow puppets; he also had a scythe on his chest. Since the accident, though, those tattoos are either gone or have moved to other locations on his body after doctors performed skin grafts.
“They used skin grafts from my right bicep and my back,” Rodriguez says. “I have a tattoo of Squidward from ‘SpongeBob’ on my left hand now.”
