As sensible fruiterers we rarely advocate playing with your food but in the case of Phil Henson, we may be willing to bend the rules. Armed with a super sharp eye and a push-pin to match, artist Hansen 'tattoos' bananas with replicas of iconic paintings and sculptures.
The detailed process sees Hansen spend hours painstakingly pricking the skin of a banana hundreds of times to create each piece of work. The small pin pricks trigger a localised oxidation process which turns the pin prick brown, gradually revealing the picture over time.

Remarkably, Phil creates his banana masterpieces free hand without the use of a template or guide.
