Pharrell Williams is splashing out hundreds of thousands of dollars on new skin.
The producer has grown bored of the numerous tattoos he has etched onto his body so is paying a firm to grow him replacement skin in a test tube, which they will then stitch over his old permanent markings.
He told MySpace.com: "It's going to be pricey, but f**k it, it's worth it. I got fire on my arms, I don't need fire on my arms! I'm a grown man.
"There's an institute called the Wake Forest Institute in North Carolina for Regenerative Skin Treatment. It's basically like getting a skin graft, but you're not taking skin from you a** or legs - these guys actually grow the skin for you.
"First you have to give them a sample of your skin, which they then replicate. Once that's been done, they sew it on - and it's seamless."
Once his new skin is ready, the NERD star is planning to have new body art.
He said: "When it is healed you can go get whatever tattoo you want."
