The 'Kickstarts' rapper posts a picture of the fan's dedication on Twitter and says it is "serious".
An Example fan has had the singer's album artwork shaved into his head.
The 'Changed The Way You Kiss Me' star posted a picture of the fan in the hairdressers on Twitter, insisting he was being "serious" and that the picture was not a joke.
He wrote: "Guy walks into a barbers and asks for my album cover shaved into his head... Serious."
In another message, he added: First time I've seen an album cover shaved into a head I must say."
The design on the man's head represents Example's last studio album 'Playing In The Shadows', which was released in September 2011.

Example is currently putting the finishing touches to his new album 'The Evolution Of Man', which is due out on 18th November.
He recently premiered the lead single from the album 'Say Nothing' with an exclusive first play on Capital this week and has also unveiled the accompanying artwork for the track which features a baby picture of himself on the cover. Watch the video for 'Say Nothing'.

The new album has been heavily influenced by rock acts, and Example recently told Capital that Nirvana, Pearl Jam and The Killers are all major bands he sought inspiration from.
The album will be released on 18th November and he also has plans to reveal details of a new 2013 UK and Ireland arena tour.
