At this point in my life, I thought I had probably seen it all when it comes to weird body modification guys, but thankfully (?) this guy called Orc from Brazil has decided to take the whole game to the next level by adding a massive set of tusks to his teeth.
The process cost just £400 and involved having a pair of massive teeth inserted into his jaw alongside his regular ones. Orc has all the regular body modifications that you would expect as well – 80% of his body is tattooed, his eyeballs are tattooed, his tongue is split and he has a bunch of piercings underneath his skin as well. You can’t accuse him of going in half hearted on the craze.
Here’s what 41 year old Orc – who lives in the tiny town of Iguatemi on the border between Paraguay and Brazil – had to say about his new feature:
I am trying to be myself, these are just my ideas, my inspirations coming from the heart.
I am not inspired by anyone.
They tell me good things that motivate me to continue.
Bad people exist everywhere and are always around… but they don’t shake me.
He’s obviously proud of his style and the way he’s made himself look, but he did say that his family and friends haven’t been quite as supportive of some of his decisions.
I was raised in Campo Grande [a city in central Brazil] by my parents.
My mum doesn’t like it, my dad tolerates it and my friends find it weird.
Live, be happy, travel, love. Do whatever you want.
Life goes by fast and death is certain.
Well, whilst everything he says there is true and it’s an admirable way to live your life by following the inspirations from your heart, you’ve gotta say that most people are probably going to think that he looks a bit freaky and scary. Still, if that’s what makes him happy then who are we to judge?
Hope you continue to live your life on your own terms Orc and don’t ever regret the fact that you’ve spent a fortune on looking like a complete weirdo. You never know.
