Inked Ivan Postcard

Ivan Beletsky (1941 - ) Oldest brother of the famous 'Beletsky Brothers' strongman act. Became fascinated with tattoos at the age of 15 when he started to believe they increased his strength. Once the brothers joined the Circus, Ivan made a comfortable living on the side parading with the marvels as 'Inked Ivan the Invincible'. Here patrons paid to see him flex his muscles and lift up attractive ladies from the crowd with one wing tip. Current whereabouts is unknown, but is believed to have fled to the Bahamas after his marriage dissolved in 1987.
