(Newser) – Yes, Ethan Bramble looks unusual. He also posts unusual messages for Australian police while they seek him on an assault charge, the BBC reports. "Nananana you'll never catch me," the 23-year-old posted on Facebook with a pic of him eating ice cream, per Australia's News Network. "Cream on brothers." The fact that Bramble is 98% covered in tattoos (including his eyes), has a forked tongue, and a silicon spider under his skin has already drawn media attention. Now there's the alleged assault. "He is described as caucasian, with a thin build," say police, who also note his tattoos "and gauges approximately 10cm in diameter in both earlobes."

Bramble told his 200,000-plus Facebook followers Thursday that it's all a misunderstanding—now "sorted out" with cops—after he tossed a beer can near his ex-girlfriend in a bar, per Fox News. But Victoria police said Friday the warrant remained active. "I smoke too much, I drink too much, I don’t want to go to jail," said Bramble. "Hopefully I don't get life in prison, later crew." Wondering about his tats? Bramble says getting eye ink was the "scariest thing" he's done and having his tongue split was the most painful. "It was five days of near-death," he told Australia's News Network last year. "You have to sleep upright and have a towel because you’re constantly drooling and if you lie down you choke on your own spit and saliva and blood and die." (Read more assault stories.)
