He's covered in over 200 tattoos, has a pink mohawk, stretched ears, a hole in his nose big enough to stick his own finger through and he nearly died on stage while swallowing a lit neon tube... His name is Hannibal Hellmurto from the Circus of Horrors

I went to meet the sword swallower Hannibal Hellmurto at the Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage. Recently he tore his oesophagus on stage in front of a packed audience and ended up in intensive care... But that hasn't stopped him and he is back performing. #stevenage
