'You can't deny it's funny,' Idaho man finds art in back hair

The Associated Press

NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — One man's back hair is another man's canvas.

At least that's how Mike Wolfe, 35, of Nampa, Idaho, has decided to approach manscaping.

Wolfe tells KTVB-TV that after years of feeling ashamed of his body hair, he asked a friend in 2008 to trim an American flag on his back rather than undergoing hair removal processes likeshaving or waxing. Since then, the two meet up several times throughout the year to design a new creation onto Wolfe's back.

"Pssh, it's manhandling back hair," said Wolfe. "It's disgusting. But it's funny. You can't deny it's funny."

Tyler Harding, a former graphic artist who has been friends with Wolfe for more than a decade, says it takes about an hour to complete the artistic trim.

And the creations can now be seen on a calendar — called a Calend-hair — available for $20. Some proceeds will benefit a charity at Wolfe's church.

Designs are uniquely named, such as Grim Reap-hair for October and M-hair-achi Band for May.

"Everybody always makes fun of the guy with back hair," Wolfe said. "Well now it's my turn to shine, right?"

Wolfe's wife takes some credit for him flaunting his fur. When they went on their first date, Wolfe told her he was hairy. He felt nervous at the time, but she took it in stride.

"Looking back now this might be because of me," Jamie Wolfe said. "Maybe I shouldn't have given him so much confidence in his back hair."
