You know the saying “don’t be blue”? Well, Donnie Snider, a former forklift driver from Canada prefers to stay that way!

According to Jam Press, Snider has tattoted his entire body in blue ink, and he couldn’t be happier! “To be honest, I just like the look of it,” said Donnie Snider.“I was extremely miserable,” he said. “I decided to quit hiding, break myself out of stagnation and remake my life.”

“I’ve had many bizarre interactions,” he continued, from “smiles” to “gasps,” “free beers” to “flirting,” plus “hugs,” “fist bumps” and “thumbs up.” Some bold gawkers even go so far as tugging at his clothing “to peek underneath,” or “licking their thumbs and trying to rub the tattoo off.”

Now, he shares his adventures as a jewelry-maker living in a “clapped-out transit bus” on his Instagram account, @Trism_Driver.
