Pharrell Williams: ‘Gimme Some Skin!’

Now here’s an image that won’t help you keep down those hot dogs and hamburgers this July 4th weekend.

N.E.R.D. honcho Pharrell Williams is tired of his tats and plans to conceal them with skin that’s being grown for him, presumably in some top-secret lab that caters exclusively to vain rich folks.

“It’s basically like getting a skin graft, but you’re not taking skin from your ass or your legs. These guys actually grow the skin for you,” says the singer. “First you have to give them a sample of your skin, which they then replicate. Once that’s been done, they sew it on—and it’s seamless.”

Whoa—space age! And more than a little gross.
