As if pre-empting this reporter, who wondered how she gets around at her age despite the pervading insurgency and other dangers that dot the terrains, she swore that she is not afraid.

Actress Zoe Saldana has always been a non-conformist, but it seems she may have met her match in her husband Marco Perego. Cos Zoe revealed in a new interview with InStyle magazine that her 36 year old Italian artist hubby decided to take her last name after they wed in 2013.

The mother of six-month-old twins said:
"I tried to talk him out of it. I told him, ‘If you use my name, you’re going to be emasculated by your community of artists, by your Latin community of men, by the world. But Marco looks up at me and says, ‘Ah, Zoe, I don’t give a s**t.'"

OMG! Man Hangs Himself from Meat Hooks plus Terrifying Tattoos from the Israeli Body Art Convention

From a tattoo fanatic with his eyes inked black to a piercing fan with meat hooks embedded in his arms - these images would not seem out of place in most people's nightmares. In fact they are terrifyingly real, and are currently on display at the second annual tattoo convention being held in Tel Aviv, in the heart of conservative Israel yesterday.

Fans of body art flocked from all over the world to get tattoos from some of Israel's leading artists, including 'Magneto', pictured above, - a German tattoo model whose entire face is covered in inkings, including his eyeballs. Israeli men were pictured having intricate artworks painstakingly added to their thighs and necks during the convention, while another woman had a huge drawing etched into her chest.

Elsewhere, Israel's first 'suspension crew' - nicknamed the Suicide Team - used painful looking metal hooks and bars inserted through their skin to dangle themselves from wires high above the crowd.
One man was pictured crying out in pain while the suspension bars were inserted into his thighs, before being lifted up using meat hooks inserted through his forearms and forehead. Scroll down after the cut to see the pics.

'Why should I believe you?" asked detective Alero.
'Because I can't kill an ordinary ant. I'm too fragile to kill such not to talk of a human being. It is too much."
'But you threatened to slit her throat so don't pretend.' said I, Ross.
'Who told you that?' he asked angrily.
