A 33-year-old Frenchman who has transformed his body in a bid to become a “black alien” has now reportedly gotten two fingers chopped off his left hand to form a freakish claw.
Anthony Loffredo’s apparent surgery is the latest in a series of procedures the wannabe extraterrestrial has undergone, including getting his nose and upper lip cut off, his tongue split and his entire body – including his eyeballs – covered in tattoos.
But despite the shocking alterations, the oddball mutilation aficionado said he has only achieved 34 percent of his goal in turning into an alien, The US Sun reported.
Loffredo, who posts about his increasingly disturbing looks on Instagram under an account called the Black Alien Project, posted new images to document his grotesque surgery.
“I develop my inner peace,” he captioned an image of his hand, which appears to have stitches where the ring finger and pinky use to be.
In 2017, he told the French paper Midi Libre: “From a very young age, I have been passionate about mutations and transformations of the human body.”
“I had a click when I was a security guard. I realized that I was not living my life the way I wanted. I stopped everything at 24 and left for Australia,” he told the outlet.
“I love getting into the shoes of a scary character. 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,” Loffredo added.
Loffredo’s bizarre work has been praised by some admirers while denounced by others.
“Blatant disrespect to those that are unfortunate to have lost limbs and look for ways to function as the human body should,” one social media user wrote, the news outlet reported.
“You’re 100% going to regret this one eventually,” another said.
A third called his actions “disturbing AND fascinating at the same time. don’t think I could do this, but thumbs up to you for living your dream.”
