Body Painter Transforms Hunks Into Real-Life ‘Tom Of Finland’ Characters


A professional body painter has used his incredible skills to turn two bodybuilders into living Tom of Finland leather hunks.

Michael Mejia posted the results of his art project with gym junkies Anthony McDonough and Christopher Glebatsas to his Instagram, and the two men look like they’ve just stepped out of the artist’s scenes.

For the uninitiated, Tom of Finland was a queer European artist who was known for his hypermasculine, erotic images of gay men.

A biopic about Tom, whose real name was Touko Laaksonen, will be released in cinemas in Sydney and Melbourne next month.
