Is this worse than getting a tattoo of yourself on your body?

Is this worse than getting a tattoo of yourself on your body?

http://www.football-italia.net/31264...statue-himself

Mario Balotelli has commissioned a life-size statue of himself to stand in his Brescia home. “He’ll be immortalised in the pose after a goal.”

The Milan and Italy striker has already become famous for his audacious style choices, including a camouflage Bentley.

“I received the commission, but have never actually met Balotelli, so I am working from photographs,” local artist Livio Scarpella told Il Giornale di Brescia newspaper.

“I presented various sketches, but Mario wanted to be immortalised in the pose after a goal: muscles in evidence and an expression to challenge the opponents.”

This seems to be the pose he adopted after scoring the second goal against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final.

“I imagined him as an athlete from ancient times. The statue will be between the classic and pop style, in platinum and coloured bronze with the eyes made of precious stones.”

This argument has stopped being relevent for Balotelli a long time ago, the guy is just plain dumb.

A statue can also be easily removed.
