Man marks 1st Putin-Trump telecon by tatooing them on teeth

A Russian man has celebrated the first telephonic conversation between President Vladimir Putin and his American Donald Trump by having their portraits tattooed on his teeth, according to media reports.

The dental patient was having new porcelain crowns and veneers done at the surgery in Sochi, Russia- but he wanted something "extra special". Dentist Levchenko Lev then offered to engrave the man's initials, letters, or his own signature on his gnashers.

But the patient stunned staff when he asked for portraits of Trump and Putin to mark their first phone call on Friday, days after the former was inaugurated as the 45th US President.

Levchenko Lev, who runs Levchenko Lev Studio Dental, said they had to draft in a professional artist for the work – which cost more than 2,000 pounds.

He said: "During the discussion with the patient's unique capabilities in the manufacture of dental restorations, I offered to do the initials, letters, or my signature on their own work.

"The patient was actively interested in whether you can make the image of Putin and Trump at the crowns. I called the artist to clarify whether it is possible to make such small figures clearly, and met with the artist," Lev was quoted as saying by UK-based Sun newspaper.

The portraits of Putin and Trump were successfully tattooed on the patient's teeth, the report said.  The engraving was done on ceramic.

The artist first made the engraving with a fine brush, and then baked it in a dental oven and covered the material with a layer of dental transparent glaze.
