Orc, a Brazilian man in his early 40s, has about 80 percent of his skin covered in tattoos along with some other body modifications. He is crazy about these modifications and decided to take it up several notches by installing tusks.
He is a tattoo artist who lives in the small town of Iguatemi, alongside Brazil's and Paraguay's border. His eyeballs are tattooed, he has done eight subdermal piercings, while his tongue's split. He got his first tattoo at the age of 15 and decided to delve into body modifications at 35.
Orc says about his appearance:
"I am trying to be myself, these are just my ideas, my inspirations coming from the heart. I am not inspired by anyone."
How People React To Orc's Appearance
As you must have guessed, he gets different reactions and comments to his looks. He insists, though, that most of them are positive.
"They tell me good things that motivate me to continue. Bad people exist everywhere and are always around... but they don't shake me."
His family and friends have mixed reactions, though. One person who is not a fan of his appearance is his mom. He explained:
"My mom doesn't like it, my dad tolerates it and my friends find it weird."
Orc's Latest Modification
The body modification enthusiast truly shocked the world with his latest feature - tusks. With them protruding from his teeth all the way past his upper lip, he truly looks like a human orc.
He does not allow people's opinions of him to sway him or hold him back. He believes that everyone should "live, travel, be happy, love," and "do whatever they want."
"Life goes by fast, and death is certain."
You will agree that that is a pretty good principle to live by though we may individually apply it differently.
