  • From witty tattoos to hilarious Christmas snaps, the posts show cheerfulness
  • One man turned his shoulder into a dolphin’s head after his arm was removed 

They say laughter is the best medicine, and the people behind these light-hearted snaps clearly agree.  

Amputees have been poking fun at themselves in a series of photos shared on social media.

One man missing an arm has a tattoo that transforms his stump into a very realistic bottle-nosed dolphin’s face, while another has had the words ‘gone to market’ etched above his missing big toe. 

Another photo captures a resourceful man who has repurposed his prosthetic leg as a table for his drink after turning it upside down to balance a glass on the sole of his shoe.
