An extreme body modification fan has unveiled his latest transformation.
Michel Faro do Prado, 44, has been undergoing a number of procedures to achieve his “sinister creature” look.
He has shaped his teeth into arches and even got two horns implanted onto his head.
And now the tattoo artist has taken his transformation even further – by completely removing his nose.
In his recent Instagram photos, Michel has a gaping hole in his nose with a large piece of it being removed and stitched up.
Details of the procedure remain unclear and the risks or health complications of the surgery are unknown.
Michel’s wife, who specializes in body modifications, helped him to achieve his unique look.
And now she claims he’s “only the third person in the world” to have completely removed their nose.
He previously said: “I have been a tattoo artist for 25 years, most of my tattoos I get from artists and professionals who I have paid.
“I focus on blockwork and brutal tattoos, which are types of tattoos where you ink a large part of your body.
“But my wife specializes in the area of modifications and the idea is for me to become her masterpiece when it comes to tattooing.” KEEP READING
