When have you reached the limit when it comes to modifying your body?
It all began when Anthony Loffredo, 32, was working as a security guard in his twenties. He realised he was not living the way that he wanted to. In 2017, during an interview with the French newspaper, Midi Libre, he said he had been "passionate about mutations and transformations of the human body" from a young age.
"I stopped everything at 24 and left for Australia. It has become normal, even unconscious, to constantly think about my plans [for body modification] for the next few months."
Today, he has covered his entire body, including his eyeballs in tattoos. Anthony's aim is to one day resemble a "black alien". He went as far as to get his tongue split just to achieve his goal. But, he was not there yet.
In a post discussing his nose removal, Loffredo thanked an account called @oscarmarquezbodymod for having "marked" his life. "Now I can walk with my head high thanks to you. I am proud of what we did together."
Even though his procedure has made it harder to speak, it does not seem to have dampened his enthusiasm for body modification.
The striking-looking individual said he loved "getting into the shoes of a scary character". And that looks like what he will do. His next modifying dream is removing his skin entirely and replacing it with metal and listed his arms, legs and fingers, along with the back of his head.
"I often settle down somewhere and play a role, especially at night in the dark streets. I explore the contrast between the role I play and myself."
