A wanted man whose unique facial tattoos set the internet on fire has been seriously considering his life-changing ink for many years, extraordinary photos reveal.
The picture of Jaimes Sutton was posted to social media on Wednesday by NSW Police in an attempt to get him out of hiding after he jumped bail in Deniliquin, near the NSW-Victorian border.
The 24-year-old father – who has ‘BEAST’ tattooed in bubble font on his forehead – is wanted on an outstanding warrant after being released on bail for domestic violence and property damage.
DV’s charge led police to file an apprehended violence order (AVO) against him on behalf of a young woman.
Despite the allegations, it was her elaborate full body tattoo that caught the attention of Australians.
While many were quick to ridicule his unique look, a series of photos posted online between 2014 and 2021 show that he very slowly transformed from a baby-faced teenager to a heavily inked crook.
2014-Now: Jaimes Sutton was a fresh-faced eight-year-old teenager, but decided to get a number of extreme body tattoos over the course of eight years.
In 2018, Jaimes Sutton had several black shapes inked on his face, neck, arms and stomach (pictured). ‘Sutto is guilty’ was inked on his belly
Footage from 2014 shows Sutton’s baby face was relatively clear, apart from a few unintelligible tattooed scribbles on his neck.
In 2018, he had a series of black shapes and words on his arms, legs, chest, stomach, and cheeks.
BEAST’s initial outlines were visible on his forehead, “Sutto is guilty” was written in large letters on his stomach, and “game over” was written on eight of his fingers.
Three years later, Sutton decided to go all-in with a blue tattoo gun.
The black marks on his face were covered in denim blue ink, along with most of the skin on his cheeks and forehead.
The only areas intact were sections above his upper lip and near his jowls, circles around his eyes, and areas inside the bubble font on his forehead.

Daily Mail Australia can also reveal that Sutton is no stranger to the justice system. He has a criminal record dating back to 2014 in the courts of Wagga Wagga, Leeton and Deniliquin – each in the NSW region.
Just two weeks ago, Sutton faced Deniliquin Local Court on three counts of driving with an invalid license and one count of driving under the influence of drugs.
He pleaded guilty to all four counts in June, but failed to appear for sentencing in September and was slapped with a one-year license suspension and a $900 fine.
In June, he appeared in the same court and pleaded not guilty to one count of common assault and one count of assault causing actual bodily harm.
The new AVO against him has been argued and is due in Deniliquin Local Court in March next year.
When the photo was posted online, many took to social media to comment on her bizarre appearance.
“When your little one gets their hands on a permanent marker,” one person tweeted.
In 2021, Jaimes Sutton’s entire face was denim blue except for a few areas around his mouth, eyes and upper lip.

A police call that went viral caught the attention of former sex worker Amanda Goff (pictured) who jokingly asked if Jaimes Sutton was single
Another said: ‘If they can’t find a guy who looks like this they should be fired,’ one man wrote.
One woman joked: “He is with Beauty… The castles in the area need to be searched. As I’m sure she hides it.
“If only they posted some sort of description so the public can keep an eye out and help out,” another social media user said.
The police call also caught the attention of journalist and author Amanda Goff, an ex-escort formerly known as Samantha X, who jokingly asked him if he was single.
When asked if he was her type, Goff joked, “we all like a bad boy…”
However, she assured Daily Mail Australia that she was not serious.
“He’s definitely not my type at all,” she joked.
“I prefer blondes. »
