ANCHORAGE, Alaska, March 21 (UPI) -- An Alaska man who changed his name to Hostgator Dotcom said he wants to sell tattoo space on his body to get rid of his facial tattoo ads.

Dotcom, 32, who changed his name from Billy Gibby in 2009, said he wants to get rid of the company logos he had tattooed on his face to raise money for his five children, The Huffington Post reported Thursday.

The 32-year-old, who starting selling tattoo space on his face in 2007 for $1,000 to $300, before later dropping the price to $75, said he is willing to sell tattoo space on his body to raise money to remove his facial tattoos.

"I'm trying to get rid of the ones on my face," he said. "I regret them because I only did them because of my mental illness."

The man currently has 24 tattoos on his face representing various companies, including pornographic websites.
