We've seen a lot of cool body paint work over the years, but this has to be the most ferocious piece of body art in recent memory. Take a really ripped dude, get a lot of black paint and be a little patient, and you've got a badass Venom.

This awesome superhero creation comes form Georgette of Devious Body Art in West Palm Beach, Fla., and though she definitely put the work in for this creation, Georgette credits a similar piece done by Wiser Oner: Body Graffiti as her inspiration.

What makes it seem so authentic is, in part, the model, who's definitely got the muscle to convince us he's a savage supervillain possessed by an alien symbiote. But Georgette does the rest. The key, obviously, is the mouth, especially that tongue and all the extremely convincing green slime oozing from it. Peter Parker definitely doesn't want to cross this guy.
