Han Xiaoming, a Chinese artist who paints with his tongue, attracted thousands on Wednesday in east China’s Hangzhou city, Zhejiang Province.

Han completed a painting within one hour using his tongue as a brush.

However, this is not the first time Han has tried his ‘tongue’ on painting. Since October, he has been performing his unique stunt in public.

According to a report from in October, Han is a follower of Chinese sugarpainting (an ancient art form which involves using melted sugar to create figures such as rabbits, dragons, monkeys, and birds, etc.), and came up with the idea of tongue painting and soon found the fun in it.

The painting material Han uses is reportedly food dye instead of oil paints, which, fortunately, will be far less harmful to his health.
