A sophomore majoring in animation at Cleveland Institute of Art, Shaquille Dent has a gift in the form of his insanely awesome spiky hair. Once he started posting photos of his anime-inspired hair online, the Internet basically went crazy and dubbed him “Black Goku” in reference to Dragon Ball Z.
He realized his anime spiking talent a few years ago. Now he can save on barber fees since he styles his ‘do only twice a month – and it stays! The original style was inspired by Goku and he recently bleached his hair as tribute to Yu-Gi-Oh.
Dent explains to BuzzFeed:
“I’m always really happy to hear a compliment or when people take interest in my hair. It’s funny — the reason this went viral was because of all of the haters. They wanted to bash me for my hair but ended up promoting it instead.”
Well, I think it’s awesome so keep on rocking it! Check out more of his spiky hair renditions after the break.
