What a headline.
After having his nose and top lip removed, Anthony Loffredo is now struggling to talk.
I cannot imagine why
Body modification is a pretty normal thing; a lot of people have earrings and a tattoo or two. Not too risky! But as you get further and further into the world of body modification, the dangers compound; pain, loss of vision, or infection can all set upon a body.
Loffredo took part in a black alien project on Instagram and to do so, he had his tongue split and his whole body and his eyeballs covered in tattoos.
The 32-year-old has documented the entire bevy of body alterations and even had his nose removed. He had to travel to Spain to do so; the procedure is illegal in France. And now?
He has trouble speaking.
Is he stopping? No. He shared in an Instagram live that he plans to modify his legs, fingers arms, and the back of his head.
He also wants his skin replaced with metal ??? I’m 80% sure that will just kill you. No — I’m 100% sure that’s deadly. Your skin is an organ!
And here’s what really blew my brain to bits: he shared in the same Instagram live that he has no trouble attracting women. GIRLS, WHAT.
Loffredo has thanked @oscarmarquezbodymod for making his nose-removal a reality. “Now I can walk with head high. Big thanks to you, I am proud of what we did together,” he said.
In 2017, Loffredo told Midi Libre, a French newspaper, that he was interested in extreme mutations from a young age.
“I had a click when I was a security guard. I realized that I wasn’t living my life as desired. I stopped everything at age 24 and left for Australia,” he said.
“It has become normal, even unconscious, to think about my plans for the next few months constantly. I love getting into the shoes of a scary character; I often settle down somewhere and play a role, especially at night in the dark streets; it has fun. Also, I explore the contrast between the role I play and myself,” Loffredo said.
