A man, who wants to be a “black alien” has drastically altered his appearance as part of a “project” that he openly shares on social media.
Anthony Loffredo, 32, has regularly shared disturbing photos of his new look to his Instagram account, which he has titled “The Black Alien Project.”
He traveled to Spain to have his nose removed since the procedure is legal there but not in his home country of France.
In a social media post, Loffredo tagged the plastic surgeon who did his nose job, saying that he now holds his head high.
Other cosmetic surgery procedures undergone by Loffredo have included his upper lip being removed, and his tongue split — which he claims has left him struggling to speak.
Every inch of his body — even down to his ears and eyeballs — has been covered in tattoos to create his “alien” look, which he says he is “proud” of and creates no problems attracting partners.
Loffredo worked as a security guard but left his job eight years ago and moved to Australia. Realizing he was not living the life he wanted, he quit his job and moved far away from home, and began his transition to a “black alien.”
He has said it is his “dream” to remove his skin and instead create a layer of metal over his body. He also has aspirations to make changes to his arms, legs, hands, and head as part of his dramatic makeover.
In 2017, Loffredo spoke to a French newspaper about his body-altering ambitions and shared that he felt “passionate” about transformations of the body since he was very young.
He has spoken about his “love” for playing the role of a “scary character” and comparing himself with the role he is playing.
He confessed: “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 added: “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.”
Almost 300,000 accounts are currently following him on Instagram — where he shares photos of his transformation, including before and after pictures.
He recently shared a picture revealing what his complete and final body transformation will look like once he has gotten the tattoos, surgeries, and removed his skin, and replaced it with metal.
