David Blaine is a master at what he does. To me he is one of the best illusionists in the world. Some of the tricks he pulls off have you in awe. This trick he did had Ricky Gervais beyond confused and even mad in disbelief. David Blaine sticks a huge needle through his arm until it comes out the other side, and reacts like it doesn't hurt at all. So, is this real or is this just a trick? You decide. It sure looks real to me.

The funny part is when Ricky Gervais gets genuinely confused, mad even at David Blaine for sticking a huge needle through his arm, Ricky keeps asking the question ..."WHY, Why would some one want to stick a needle through their arm?" The trick was done 6 inches from his face, I could see why he was so confused. There was no blood nor a hole. That's what has always set David Blaine apart from everyone else.
