Meet Orc, a 41-year-old man who’s covered in tattoos, has eight subdermal piercings, has a split tongue, and has recently spent £400 on getting giant tusks attached to his teeth.
Orc, a tattoo artist, has roughly 80% of his body inked, including his eyeballs.
His family, from the small town of Iguatemi, which sits on the boarder of Paraguay and Brazil, don’t approve of Orc’s unusual appearance, but he loves to use body modification as a means of self-expression.
He often gets positive comments from strangers about the way he looks.
‘I am trying to be myself, these are just my ideas, my inspirations coming from the heart,’ said Orc.
‘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.
‘My mum doesn’t like it, my dad tolerates it and my friends find it weird.’
Along with all his tattoos, Orc also has eight subdermal piercings placed under the skin to create the appearance of horns.
He got his first tattoo when he was just 15, but only started delving into body modification at 35.
Within the last few years, he’s had his eyeballs tattooed, his tongue split, and those massive false teeth added.
Orc has no plans to stop looking exactly the way he wants to, as eccentric as that may be.
All the body modification and tattoos make Orc happy.
‘Live, be happy, travel, love,’ he said. ‘Do whatever you want.
‘Life goes by fast and death is certain.’
