If you think about it, this may be the next body modification trend... Maybe, if explored properly, scientists could reproduce the effect with other colors and also modifications only visible in black lights or some other type of situation... This guy may some day be remembered as a pioneer of a new era in body modifcation.

In my opinion, this guy is certainly unique and isn't that what all of us truly desire?

One last set of question. Could this skin condition be passed on genetically? I mean if Mr. Karasan and his girlfriend decide to have kids, would the blueish tint be hereditary but at lower levels?

I don't care if you are blue! Now you know what it is like to be colored in some places.

If he really believes he turned blue naturally, he deserves to be blue. Not to be picked on, but to be blue.
How the fuck can you turn blue and still think it has nothing to do with the silver you're practically drinking..

Not at all. It's not a genetic change, but an environmental/dietary one. Just like iron oxide embedded in the skin makes a basic tattoo, he has a form of silver deposited in his skin, effectively tattooing it from the inside. It would no more pass on to children than a standard tattoo would.

Other metals may produce different colors, but many metals would poison the person too, like mercury, lead, and arsenic. Copper might be safer. It may produce green, like it does when oxidized or burned, but I still wouldn't recommend experimenting with it.

If I met the guy, the Papa Smurf comment would pass through my mind, if not my mouth. As long as he's good-humored enough to laugh that off, I wouldn't treat him any differently beyond the surprise of that first meeting.

As to the body modification subject, I suppose it's an option. If you want to be blue just because you like blue, then go for it. If you're considering it just for the sake of standing out, then that's pathetically desperate for attention. If being blue is the only thing unique about you, then you wouldn't be more interesting, you'd just be a boring or stupid blue person. The same goes for tattoos and piercings; wear one if you think it's a pretty decoration, not as a substitute for personality or intellect.
