The art of tattooing bananas
An artist has been recreating some of the world's most iconic paintings using only a push-pin and a banana.
Phil Hansen uses the pin to make a series of small punctures in the banana's skin.
As the fruit naturally turns brown in those areas, the image appears, reports LA Weekly.
Mr Hansen has uploaded a video of him using the technique to create uncanny replicas of famous works from Vincent Van Gogh, Andro Botticelli, and even Michelangelo's The Creation Of Adam.
The clip, which has attracted 100,000 hits, coincides with the release of his book, entitled Tattoo A Banana: And Other Ways To Turn Anything And Everything Into Art.
