If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind case for your precious smartphone, here’s one that looks like it came straight out of Videodrome director David Cronenberg’s worst nightmares.

Have you seen that movie? It’s messed up.

This creepy phone case comes courtesy of artist Sarah Sitkin, who specializes in amazing, realistic representations of human body parts. And if you want one that looks like its upkeep will include the judicious use of cotton swabs, she’s created one that looks uncannily like you skinned it off of one of your victims as a trophy. But it will cost you.

Sitkin is selling the cases in her online store, and she can make one to suit any device you might be packing. The thing costs $600, but considering you’re getting a one-of-a-kind art piece that also protects your equally expensive phone, it might be worth it.

“It takes about 2 to 3 weeks time to make each one of these Custom Ear Phone Cases,” the shop listing says. “The ear is molded directly from a human being, sculpted in clay to fit your specific phone model, then molded again and cast in lifelike platinum skin-safe silicone. Hyper realistic details include veins, freckles, and tiny hairs.”

We can’t decide if it is or is not fortunate that you can’t pick which ear is on your case, but isn’t it enough that you get one on there?

Sitkin’s Instagram account shows off even more of her work, including heads, hands, and a tongue that had us doing triple- and quadruple-takes.

But we feel like she’s missing out on a halfway decent gag here. Where is the equally terrifying “eyePhone”?
