This is why you should never inject yourself with anything

Is this really the look he was going for?

According to, a 21 year-old Russian named Kirill Tereshin has amassed more than 40,000 Instagram followers while growing his arms in completely unnatural ways:

It sounds like Kirill was on the brink of death while injecting himself. He said that he needed to inject multiple liters of Synthol into his arms in order to grow them to that size (250ml doesn’t even grow an inch). Also, each time he’d inject himself with the Synthol he’d give himself a crippling fever.
