'Tape Face' Portraits By Photographer Wes Naman

f you think you are having trouble wrapping presents, check out these sticky tape portraits.

Photographer Wes Naman has created hilarious head shots of his friends using rolls of Scotch Tape to distort their features.

Wes, 37, from Albuquerque, originally got the idea after applying tape to himself to test a lighting rig set-up. But he was stuck on the idea of doing a series after being impressed by the zombie-like results.

And while we're all for the concept of suffering for one's art, we're glad we weren't around when he unwrapped them all again...
