He's a hottie....Amputee, former Marine enjoys second career as fitness model

Double takes are nothing unusual around Alex Minsky, but not because of this war veteran’s prosthetic leg.

His tattooed, finely chiseled body often gets a second look – along with a blush or two – for how good he looks in his skivvies.

The former Marine-turned-model works out twice a day – a grueling maintenance schedule – but nothing compared to what Minsky, 24, experienced before reaching this point in his life.

Four years ago, he lost part of his right leg, and nearly his life, in a roadside explosive in Afghanistan.

“It did look very grim. I had a Stage 3 brain injury,” he told TODAY’s Tamron Hall. “I was in a coma for 47 days.”

I can deal with the amputation but the tats are a deal breaker

by Anonymousreply 206/19/2013

Class 3 Brain Injury. But he was marine so he wasn't using that part of his body anyway, so this worked out very well for him.

I'm with R2. He looks like trailer trash.

One legged rough trade but I would date him.

by Anonymousreply 506/19/2013

Very bad tats everywhere. I like tats when it looks like the person put some thought into how they would accentuate their looks. Others just get big tats everywhere that detract from their looks. That's this guy.

Having "Don't laugh" right over the penis doesn't bode well.

Judging by R1's link, I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing him in gay amputee porn soon.

All those tatoos...Pre or post amputation? There's some psychology there...

R3 is hilarious.

Tattoos are vile. It's such a shame that he has so many; they distract from his cute face.

Handsome guy, but those tats are simply vile.

I think his tats are beautiful.

I think I read he suffered some burns, so they may be covering those up.

I'm not usually a fan of that many tattoos, but I think he is gorgeous, and if he's masking burns or injuries, I think he's making something beautiful out of pain.

Go on with your hot ass, Jarhead!

He's sexy, but he's not going to get much fitness modeling work with those tatts. They HATE tatts in fitness photos.

by Anonymousreply 3306/20/2013

R28, it is more possible to "stop talking about" his amputated leg than his tattoos. They take up too much of his body to be ignored. And I doubt he wants people to stop talking about them. People get them done because they crave the attention.

I don't like a man with too many muscles.

There was a report about him on Inside Edition yesterday, but they didn't feature any bulges, outlines or cock shots, not even with that little red banner they regularly place over female naughty bits.

by Anonymousreply 3706/20/2013

Imagine how great he'd look without the tattoos, or even if he'd known when to stop? It's a damn shame. But, good luck to him.

Ha ha R31! Glad to know I'm not the only sick fuck that nutted to that video this am.

by Anonymousreply 3906/20/2013

His body is amazing, but it's not the right look (not enough vasculature and tightness) for fitness work. And he's also covered up a lot of real estate with tattoos.

by Anonymousreply 4006/20/2013

R24. Fantastic!

by Anonymousreply 4106/20/2013

And the tattoos are hideous. Roses and gravesites with skulls. He's a trashy moron with no taste what so ever.

Why even bother working out when your body is ruined by garbage tats? Some guys do well in choosing tats that make them hotter. This guy is clueless.

by Anonymousreply 4206/20/2013

He's a sweetie-pie, and an admitted narcissist. We're Facebook friends (along with 1,000s of others, of course).

But we did have a little interaction, before he got real famous, and he is a sweetie who did not seek this out, but now embraces his "mo fans."

You know, he had to completely relearn how to speak, eat, walk and live after his coma and injuries.

You queens are predictably vicious, judgmental and cruel.

It's rather pathetic, considering how you post your inane hangnail pathetic mini-problems on here is if they were the next Wagner opera.

This guy got fuckin' blown up!

Get a fuckin' clue!

Yes. He joined a war. Became a warrior. He could have stayed home. He wasn't drafted.

Yes, 44. You have a firm grasp of the obvious.

Why not start another thread diminishing fire and police workers, too? They all could just have chosen office jobs, after all.

So fucking what, R48 R45 R43? Tattoos are ugly. Deal with it.

Boo fucking hoo, R50. I suppose you think someone who joins the military is a "hero." They're victims is what they are. Which is sad, but he didn't get drafted. He chose to go to war. He's lucky -- or maybe he's not so lucky; time will tell -- not to have lost his life.

wow you guys are so weird...the guy is gorgeous,seems sweet,yummy body,a war veteran yummy bum

some guys like to use body like a paper for tats,i think it's just fine...

why all of a sudden trash and on and on...?

it seems most of you like the young dumb and full of cum with no personality so you don't have to deal with it or get to know the guy...

fascination with sterile -the right gadget-the right look-the right emptiness-

sterile one night 'relationship'

no wonder so many are single forever

by Anonymousreply 5306/20/2013

He's hot. Is he trying to become a mainstream model, though?

He should just do some gay pron now and save us all the time.

i've noticed that so many gays like this clean cookie cutter type thing ...

i don't get it...

i think some roughness and sweat and strength is sexy and there is nothing wrong with tattoos ...guys are supposed to be spontaneous and you know,gettin a tattoo what is wrong with that?

He's arguably the hottest cyborg since Lee Majors.

"I suppose you think someone who joins the military is a "hero." They're victims is what they are. "

No, I agree with you there. Don't mistake mild support for vets to be from some Teahaggot nutbag.

I protested the Bush dual invasions several times.

But your facile dismissal implies that they're useless as people.

The "heroic" aspect of Alex is that he's become a symbol of positive sexy imagery for disabled people.

Yes, the tattoos are ...whatever they are; his form of expression.

He's not the most eloquent person, partially due to his brain injury.

And hey, he's modeling in his underpants, opening himself up for criticism.

But the particular viciousness here is typical of the anonymous clawed harpies who flutter around any form of celebrity or different looks.

by Anonymousreply 5806/20/2013

This is guy is all man!! He can pull off several looks (jock, nerd/intellectual, professional "suit")that make him very much model material. His beautiful tats don't always have to show in all his model shots if/ when he expands beyond what he's doing now. Sweet baby!!!!

by Anonymousreply 5906/21/2013

You guys who like his tats sound like you live in trailer parks.

He has an attractive face and a nice body; I'm sorry he got blown to smithereens in an unjust war; I'm also sorry he had the poor taste to cover his body in tacky tattoos.

Reading the shit you people wrote about his tattoos and jokes about his amputation reinforces why I don't like being around most gay men.

You people are the ones tattooed with hopelessness, self loathing, and revolting cynicism.

As a younger gay man, I endured this type of smack because of the many scars I have from a surgery. It destroyed my "gay self esteem" and has made me forever afraid to be around too many gay men. In fact I simply hate gay bars and "dinner and drinks" gatherings because of it.

I can make friends with a straight guy in 3 seconds. It takes much longer to trust a gay man as a friend. In spite of that, I've built up a nice circle of gay and straight friends that has made my life full of love and not gay viper viciousness.

I don't pity you guys at all. I think you deserve all the karma you get.

by Anonymousreply 8406/23/2013


That's pathetic. If you have scars, straight people notice them and comment on them, perhaps not to your face.

by Anonymousreply 8506/23/2013

Sorry to hear that R84. I hope you understand that people are bitchy online in a way they aren't in real life.

by Anonymousreply 8606/23/2013

Obviously R84 overlooked this little nugget of information when he logged on:

DataLounge: get your fix of gay gossip, news and pointless bitchery.

And Dear R84, gay men hardly have a lock on bad behavior. I once worked in a small office of 6 straight guys and they out-bitched, out-cunted, out-backstabbed and out-snarked any and all of the bitchiest queens I ever met in my life.

The mobility scooter crowd is really out on this thread. Again fascinating that the same people wanting to be equal in society are all too anxious to tear down someone who doesn't look/act the way they want.
