PT Barnum would love this guy. You, however, might not.
Michel Faro do Prado is known as ‘Human Satan’ for his extreme body modifications got his ears cut off so that he could “celebrate the end of COVID-19 face mask mandates.”
The 44-year old Brazilian has been a tattoo artist for 25 years. 85% of his body is covered in tattoos, and he’s had more than 60 procedures to change his appearance.
Prado has got horns implanted on his head. He had his belly button removed and a part of his nose too. He even had one of his fingers amputated so that his hand looked “more alien”.
He joked that he got his ears removed because he no longer needs them to keep on a face mask.
The operation was performed by Mexican body modifier ‘Gattoo Moreno’.
“I am extremely thrilled with this extreme modification I have done,” Prado said on social media.
But jokes and derisive comments from folks on the internet are fast flowing.
“No earbuds for Christmas,” one person commented.
Another person tried to justify Prado’s body modifications.
“The point is to not look like how you looked before. People that do this many mods are trying to get as far away from how they looked as possible, so they feel relief the more and more different they look.”
Yet another commenter had a much more pragmatic view.
“I just don’t understand how someone can modify their body to this extent. There’s no going back. If you try to fix this, you’ll still have scarring and disfiguration. You’ll never look like your old self again and will have to live with this the rest of your life.”
