Larry Da Leopard

A Texas tattoo artist’s obsession with leopard spots may have caused a rift with his loved ones, but he believes it has brought him one step closer to becoming a true ‘manimal’ with cat-like reflexes. Born Lance Brieschke, Larry Da Leopard has covered every inch of his body with more than a thousand spots to become half man, half big-cat. The 40-year-old is a well-known character in Austin, prowling the streets in little more than a loincloth as part of his outrageous leopard act. Larry, who refers to himself as a ‘manimal’ – half man, half animal – has no regrets about his choice of body art. ‘My leopard tattoos have given me special leopard powers like seeing in the dark, running really fast and hunting at night,’ he said.
