Imagine if you could go back in time and meet your younger, wilder self? What words of advice would you have? Dutch artist Ard Gelinck hasn't invented the time machine just yet, but his brilliantly photoshopped images of iconic people and their younger versions might just be the next best thing.

The seemingly posed photographs depict celebrities such as Freddy Mercury, Tom Hanks and Madonna side by side in before-and-after versions of themselves, looking for all the world like best buddies hanging out and having a great time together. We here at Bored Panda have selected our favorite of Ard's works, which you can see below. Which are your favorites? Let us know in the comments!

Liked her old nose so much better. Her original Greek features. She’s still pretty but the nosejob made her look more basic.

He's earned that face. I saw him in a store in NYC in the early 1980s. Before I recognized him, the fact that he was incredibly sexy registered right away. Whew.
